Silver Health Systems Ltd. (doing business as “Silver Valet Dental Care”) (“Silver”) understands the importance of privacy and is committed to protecting personal information.
This Policy sets out the principles that will be observed by Silver with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information about any identifiable individual other than a Silver employee. This Policy applies regardless of the format in which personal information is provided to Silver.
“Personal information” includes any information about an identifiable individual, other than their name, title and business contact information. Silver may collect personal information including an individual’s name, home address and telephone number, age, identification numbers, health information, medical history, dental condition, past dental treatment, and financial, asset and credit information. The types of personal information held by Silver may vary depending on whether the individual is a current or prospective patient, investor, distributor, supplier or service-provider.
Silver welcomes questions and feedback on its management of personal information. Any questions, concerns, or complaints regarding this Policy, our related privacy practices, or our management of personal information may be directed to Silver’s Privacy Officer at:

Collection, Use and Disclosure
Silver collects, uses and discloses personal information in order to identify and communicate with patients, investors, distributors, suppliers and service-providers; to determine whether to accept any person as a patient, investor, distributor, supplier or service-provider; to administer our relationship with patients, investors, distributors, suppliers and service-providers; to keep accounts and records related to dental care, including assessment, treatment, and payment for services; and as otherwise permitted or required by law. Silver limits the collection, use and disclosure of personal information to what is required and reasonable in the circumstances. Although Silver collects personal information primarily from the individual involved, Silver may also collect personal information from other authorized sources.
Silver may store personal information in its custody, or control outside of Canada, or share personal information with third parties (service providers) located in other countries. If Silver transfers personal information to third parties for storage or processing, Silver will use contractual or other means to provide a comparable level of protection while the personal information is accessible to the third party. No contract or policy can override the laws of the jurisdiction where the personal information is stored.
If Silver is involved in a sale, transfer or reorganization of its business that involves the disclosure of personal information to another organization, Silver will require that organization to protect the personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy and all applicable law.
