ONB’s INFORMATION PRACTICES

Collection

ONB has legal authority to collect PI as per RTIPPA, Section 37 (1), (2), and the ONB Act, Section 5 (d).

For the provision of our programs or services, ONB collects only necessary PI, as permitted by law, including:

Use and Disclosure

ONB uses or discloses your PI only for the purpose for which it was collected, or for a use consistent with that purpose.

When a third party participates in the collection, use, disclosure, or other processing of PI on ONB’s behalf, ONB enters into a written agreement with the third party and requires that organization to commit to protecting PI in accordance with our privacy policies and privacy legislation.
