Astek Canada Inc. understands the importance of protecting Personal Information. For this reason, Astek Canada Inc. strives to put in place procedures and security measures to protect the Personal Information in its custody.
1. APPLICATION AND SCOPE
“Personal Information” means any information about an identifiable individual.

That said, Astek ensures at all times that Personal Information is protected by security and confidentiality procedures and by protective measures that are equivalent, at a minimum, to those used by Astek itself.
