Kawartha Total Foot Care Centre Inc. (KTFCC)
Privacy of personal information is an important principle to KTFCC. We are committed to collecting, safeguarding, using, and disclosing personal information responsibly and only to the extent necessary for the services we provide. We also try to be open and transparent as to how we handle personal information.
Personal information is information about identifiable individuals. Personal information includes
information that relates to their personal characteristics (e.g., gender, age, family status), their health
(e.g., health history, health conditions, health services received by them), or their activities and views.
Our organization, KTFCC, includes chiropodists and support staff. We use a number of consultants and agencies that may, in the course of their duties, have limited access to personal information we hold. These include accountants, bookkeepers, computer consultants, credit card companies, and lawyers. We restrict their
access to any personal information we hold as much as is reasonably possible. We also have their
assurance that they follow appropriate privacy principles.
We collect and maintain personal health records in the course of our treatment activities. Should your
treatment involve contact with other health professionals, we will not disclose your personal health
information to anyone, including your family physician, without your personal consent to do so.
