Your Privacy Is Protected
Your Privacy Is Important to Us:
At Bowmont, we collect your personal information. It includes your personal demographic and your personal health information. We have submitted our Health Information and Security Manual to the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC). A complete Bowmont Health Information Privacy and Security Manual can be found at Bowmont.
To reduce the likelihood of unauthorized access to your information and to our physical premises we have certain practices in place. They include:
Recently our Bowness Business Area has seen an increase in the number of Break and Entering Crimes and Theft Crimes.
In an attempt to discourage perpetrators of such offences and in order to identify them if they do commit a crime at our premises, we have installed security cameras. We have tried other modalities and despite them theft remains a problem.
The Video Recorder is securely stored onsite in a locked cupboard. The cameras record and save images for approximately 3 weeks. Then the video storage space is overwritten with new video footage. The Video System is secured through account and password protection and it is accessed by Mountain Technologies, the service provider, the Bowmont Medical Director, the Clinic Privacy Officer and 2 senior Bowmont staff, all who are responders to alarms in the event that the security system has been breached outside of normal business hours. The images can be reviewed remotely through an app prior to entering the premises in the event that an alarm has been activated and in case a perpetrator remains inside the premises after an alarm has been sounded. This adds a level of safety to the emergency responders.
