Privacy Policy

Welcome to Bio-Test Laboratory. This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which we collect, use,
maintain, and disclose information collected from users (referred to as "User(s)" or "you") of Bio-Test.ca
(referred to as the "Website").

If you are not a resident of Canada, you should note that we collect, use, and disclose your personal
information as described in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with the privacy laws of Canada, which
may be different than the privacy laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside.


At Bio-Test Laboratory, we value your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal
information. This Privacy Policy outlines our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of
information we collect from users of our Website. By using our Website, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy.


“Personal information” means information about an identifiable individual as described under Canadian
privacy laws. Generally, personal information does not include any business contact information that is
solely used to communicate with you in relation to your employment, business, or profession, such as
your name, position name or title, work address, work telephone number, work fax number, or work
email address.

We may collect personal identification information from Users in various ways, including but not limited
to when Users visit our Website, register on the Website, subscribe to a newsletter, respond to a survey,
fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features, or resources we make available
on our Website. We may collect, use, and disclose different types of personal information, depending on
our relationship with you. Generally, the types of personal information we collect can be grouped into
the following categories (not all of which may apply to you):


We generally use your personal information for the following purposes:


We use cookies, and other similar technologies such as web beacons, to automatically collect
information when you use our website and patient portal. Cookies help us analyze web traffic and
improve our services. They also allow us to distinguish you from other users so that we can collect
information about your preferences to tailor your experience when you use our website and patient
portal. For example, we use cookies that allow you to remain logged in while you navigate the patient
portal. We do not use personal information collected through cookies in our patient portal to engage in
interest-based advertising.

You have a variety of tools to control the information collected by cookies and similar technologies
when you use our website and patient portal. For example, you can use controls in your internet
browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies and to withdraw your consent by
clearing or blocking cookies. Note, however, that without certain cookies you may not be able to use all
the features of our website or patient portal. You can learn more about cookies here.


We collect, use, and disclose your personal information with your consent or as permitted or required
by law. How we obtain your consent, including whether it is express or implied, will depend on the
circumstances and the sensitivity of the personal information in question. Generally, we will seek your
consent at the time we collect your personal information, either orally, electronically, or in writing.

If you wish to withdraw your consent to our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information,
please contact us using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We will
accommodate requests to withdraw consent, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. We will also
accommodate requests to place conditions on your consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of your
personal health information. In some cases, withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no
longer be able to provide you with certain products or services.

Opting Out of Marketing Communications

If you no longer want to receive marketing-related communications from us, you may opt out by clicking
the “unsubscribe” link included in any marketing-relating communication you receive from us. You may
also opt out by contacting us directly using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section

Please note that if you opt out from receiving marketing-related communications, we may still need to
send you communications about your use of our products or services, or other matters.

Retention, Storage, and International Transfer of Personal Information

We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we
collected it, and as permitted or required by law.

We store personal information that is collected through our patient portal on servers located in Canada.


We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual, and technological security measures in an
effort to protect your personal information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
For example:

Despite these measures, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will always be effective. A breach of
security safeguards can result in such risks as phishing and identity theft. In such cases, we will act
promptly to mitigate the risks and to inform you where there is a real risk of significant harm, or as
otherwise required by law.

We may also require that you assist us in safeguarding your personal information. For example, if you
create an account to use our patient portal, you should use a unique and strong password and not share
your password with others.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel
that the security of any information that you provided to us has been compromised), please contact us
immediately using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.


We expect you to supply us with updates to your personal information, when required. We will not
routinely update your personal information unless such a process is necessary.

You may make a request to review any personal information about you that we have collected, used, or
disclosed, and we will provide you with any such personal information to the extent required by
applicable laws.

You may also challenge the accuracy or completeness of your personal information in our records. If you
demonstrate that your personal information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend
your personal information as required.

We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your
personal information. Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose. We will
attempt to respond to your access or correction request no later than 30 days after receipt of such
request and will advise you in writing if we cannot meet your request within this time limit. We will not
charge you and fees to access your personal information in our records without first providing you with
an estimate of the approximate fees, if any. You may have the right to make a complaint to the Privacy
Commissioner of Canada or the applicable provincial privacy commissioner if you object to how we
handle your request.

If we are processing your personal information on behalf of our customer, we may refer your access or
correction request to that customer.
