Personal information does not include information available to the public, such as information found in telephone directories, professional or business directories, public registers and publicly accessible court records.
As part of its activities and dealings with you, Sobeys agrees to keep the personal information you provide confidential, whether you are a Sobeys supplier, customer or employee. The same applies to personal information about any individual who visits the IGA.net website.
Sobeys agrees to abide by the basic principles of privacy protection in how it gathers, uses and discloses your personal information. Sobeys is proud to uphold the following principles:
Sobeys will ensure that its employees and representatives uphold its principles of privacy protection by means of inhouse policies and appropriate security measures. Sobeys will also appoint an individual within Sobeys to ensure these principles are observed.
Sobeys will determine the purpose of any personal information it gathers before or at the time it is gathered.

When you send Sobeys personal information by completing the fields and forms on the IGA.net website or by any other means, you consent to the gathering, use and disclosure of your personal information for the purpose for which it is gathered.
Sobeys limits the gathering of personal information to the information it needs to be able to provide the products and services to which you want access, notably when using the IGA.net website.
