1) General Terms and Conditions
2) Privacy, Consent and Confidentiality Statement
There are situations where SOPA does not need the consent of a client in order to share their personal information. The exceptions are: a) Section 23 of the Children and Family Services Act states that “Every person who has information, whether or not it is confidential or privileged, indicating that a child is in need of protective services shall report that information to an agency.” b) Section 5 of the Adult Protection Services Act provides that “anyone who has information, confidential or privileged, indicating that an adult is in need of protection must report that information to the Minister of Community Services through designated officials.” c) If you pose a threat of harm to yourself or to another person, SOPA will take whatever steps are required by law, or permitted by law, to help prevent any potential harm from happening. d) A court order, issued by a judge, could require SOPA to release your personal information or could require a SOPA employee to testify in court.
