No. 88

Effective: March 31, 2005

We've updated our website (the registration page of the Retirement Planner, the pensioner section on Personal Information Changes, and the Contact Us and Terms of Use sections) to expand on our policy regarding personal information and e-mails.

While the website already advises clients to not submit personal information online, it now also specifies what we do not send online: namely, e-mails that

  • contain personal information; or
  • ask clients to confirm or submit personal information by e-mail.

Clients can help us protect their personal information by exercising caution when they're online. Informing clients of our e-mail policy on collecting personal information should alert them if they ever receive an e-mail purporting to be from the OPB. By working together, we can keep this information safe and secure.
