1.7       How You're Protected

TD Bank Financial Group (TDBFG) has always regarded the need for the protection, privacy, and confidentiality of the personal information of its employees, former employees, and retirees as an important and fundamental operating requirement. The Privacy Policy provides guidelines that support our obligations under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) by describing how we protect confidentiality of information while we collect, use, and disclose your personal information for the purpose of administering your employment relationship with TDBFG.

1. Collecting and using information

Either before or when we collect information about you, we will explain how we intend to use it. We will limit the information we collect to what we need for those purposes, and we will use it only for those purposes. We will obtain your consent if we wish to use your information for any other purpose.

Your personal profile information is used to help us manage security of the site, including password resets.

2. Releasing information

We may provide your information to other persons in situations where -

  • we have your consent
  • the other parties are our suppliers or agents who assist us in serving you
  • we are required or permitted to do so by law or applicable regulators and self-regulatory organizations

3. Protecting information

We will protect your information with appropriate safeguards and security measures. We will retain your information only for the time it is required for the purposes we explain.

1.8       Why we ask for your information

We ask you for information to establish a TD Retired Membership profile and for authentication purposes.

We obtain most of our information about you directly from you. The information we ask for depends on which feature of the website you want. For every member we need your email address in order to reset your password.

With your consent, we may share your information within The Alumni Web Site.
This consent is optional and you can decide to withdraw it at any time.

1.9       How we protect your information

We will protect your information with appropriate safeguards and security measures.

We have thorough security standards to protect our systems and your information against unauthorized access and use.

For example, our systems have been designed to ensure that your authentication password is always private and confidential. For your protection, your authentication password is known only to you - our employees and web site vendor cannot gain access to them and they will not ask you to reveal them.

Using the Internet

When you register and create a profile, we compile a profile of you for that service (e.g. name, address, etc.). Each time you use the Site, we collect your login ID, information about the features and programs you access and the informational pages of the web that you visit while using the Site.

We use your profile in responding to password reset purposes. We use your login ID to identify you as a user of the service. We use the transaction information in the aggregate to assess and improve the service.

2.0       Cookies

A cookie is a small file containing certain pieces of information that a website creates when you visit the site. It can track how and when you use a site, which site you visited immediately before, and it can store that information about you.

There are two common types of cookies, "session cookies" and "persistent cookies". Session cookies store information only for the length of time that you are connected to a website - they are not written onto your hard drive. Once you leave the website, the originator of the cookie no longer has the information that was contained on it.

TD Bank Financial Group (TDBFG) uses session cookies as an additional security feature for its online services. For example, when you login to any web service and are authenticated through your login ID and password, a cookie will store the identification number of your browser. Throughout your session, the cookie acts as a type of digital signature to identify your current session to the web server.

We also use session cookies to track your visits within our site. We use that information to determine the type of information that you are looking for in our site and to improve our site. We use information about the site you visited immediately prior to our site to assess the viability of links to our site that we have created on third party sites.

The information stored in "persistent cookies" is written onto your hard drive and remains there until the expiry date of the cookie. TD Bank Financial Group (TDBFG) uses persistent cookies to store non-sensitive information that you are aware of and have agreed to. For example, if you choose the option on our login screen to remember your Alumni Web Site user name and password, the system will remember and automatically input your authentication information each time you use the service from that personal computer.

We also employ persistent cookies, in order to provide you with a more comfortable online experience. A persistent cookie is placed on your computer's hard drive to remember your language preference and ensure you are always presented with the appropriate language. All persistent cookies used by TD Bank Financial Group (TDBFG) are encrypted for additional security.
Currently, most browsers do not distinguish between session cookies and persistent cookies. For web services to operate, your browser must be set to accept cookies. If you are concerned about having your browser enabled to accept cookies while you are surfing other websites, we recommend that you enable your browser to notify you when it is receiving a cookie. This gives you the ability of accepting or rejecting any cookie presented by the web server you are visiting.

Flash - Local Shared Object

Local shared objects, sometimes referred to as "Flash cookies", are data files that a website creates when you visit the site. Shared objects are most often used to enhance your web-browsing experience.

A local shared object is like a browser cookie, except that it can also store data more complex than simple text. Shared objects, by themselves, can't do anything to or with the data on your computer. More importantly, shared objects cannot access or remember your email address or other personal information unless you willingly provide such information.
