We will only use Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and PIPA (defined below) unless otherwise required by applicable law. We take steps to ensure that the Personal Information that we collect about you is adequate, relevant, not excessive, and used only for the limited purposes permitted by applicable law. Every employee, contractor and manager of the Company is responsible for protecting Personal Information and shall only collect, use, and disclose Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable law.

Personal Information” is a broadly defined term that includes information that is reasonably capable of identifying a particular individual either alone or when combined with information from other available sources. Personal Information includes an employee’s Personal Information such as information required to process payroll, but it does not include business contact information or work product information.

Some examples of Personal Information are:

  • Personal contact information such as name, personal number and home address, excepting information on a business card;
  • Government identification (social insurance number, drivers’ license number);
  • Financial information such as bank account or income details;
  • Personal characteristics such as age, gender, disability; and
  • Personal preferences, such as product preferences.

The information we collect about you depends on our relationship with you, but may include your name, personal and business contact information, personal employee information, information about how you use our products and services, and other information related to our business of natural gas processing, liquids upgrading, storage and transportation and marketing of our services.

We only collect information that is required for, or related to, providing products and services, establishing, managing, and terminating an employment or contractual relationship and conducting business by providing you with requested products and services. Generally, we collect business information, not personal information, although personal information is collected from landowners for crossing agreements, for example, and personal employee information is collected for human resources purposes.

For online visitors, we may collect information from you if you enter contact information for us to respond to you or if you use our online application system as a potential employee. The information will only be used to respond to your request or receive your application for employment. Further information such as your IP address, the type of operating system, the time and duration of your visit to our sites, Internet locations you came from, and the web pages you visit within our sites may be collected and used solely for the statistical reasons with the sole purpose of improving our website experience.



We will get consent for the collection, use, or disclosure of Personal Information about an individual, unless otherwise permitted by PIPA and applicable law. The Company will get your consent to collect, use, or disclose your Personal Information, except where we are legally authorized or required by applicable law to do so without consent.

Depending on the transaction, consent may be obtained orally, in writing or electronically and may be an opt-out (check box) consent. Consent may also be implied or explicit, depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information.

You may withdraw consent to collect, use or disclose your Personal Information at any time by giving the Company reasonable notice, except to the extent withdrawing consent would prevent us from properly performing a legal obligation. If you chose to withdraw your consent, the Company may be limited in the manner in which it can provide you with the goods or services requested and will, where reasonably necessary, explain such limitations to you.

Third-party service providers include, but are not limited to, our accountants, bookkeepers, payroll processors and benefits administration providers.

We require all our third-party service providers, by written contract, to implement appropriate security measures to protect employee Personal Information consistent with our policies and any data security obligations applicable to us as your employer. We do not permit our third-party service providers to use employee Personal Information for their own purposes or to communicate employee Personal Information to third parties without consent, subject to the limited exceptions permitted under applicable law. We only permit them to use employee Personal Information for specified purposes in accordance with our instructions.

Only those Company employees who have a true business need to collect, use or disclose your Personal Information will have access to it and will treat it confidentially in accordance with this Privacy Policy and PIPA.

We securely destroy or anonymize Personal Information once it is no longer necessary to fulfil the identified purposes or any other legal or business purposes unless it is necessary and permitted under applicable law to retain the Personal Information for legal or business purposes.

Accuracy & Access

The Company will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the Personal Information we collect, use, or disclose is accurate and complete.
