Consent to video use/online technology: PDHHS staff and clients may use video technology (such as Video Relay Service, Skype, FaceTime, GoToMeeting, MS Teams and Zoom) to communicate and receive services (for example, communicating by video, and sign language instruction). If you provide your email address it may be used to communicate with you regarding these services. Personal information about clients will be collected throughout these processes. PDHHS staff cannot guarantee that internet-based technology (video or otherwise) is 100% secure - personal information may be transmitted, collected, and/or stored via the internet. Servers for these video services and some sign language interpreters (if you are using the Video Relay Service) may be located outside of Canada. Clients may consent to proceed with video services/online technology or decline. For clients who decline video services/online technology, other service options will be explored (for example, by phone or in-person sessions).
This consent is valid from the date this document is signed, until consent is revoked by contacting Provincial Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services at email@example.com
Information collected by PDHHS while using video services/online technology or accessing services through other means is collected per section 26(c) of Freedom of Information and protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) for the purposes of delivering services to clients.
