At MyOTF, we take your privacy very seriously. You can rest assured that your personal information will remain private and secure. All sharing of information is ultimately controlled by you, the end user.
Privacy Notes Regarding Individual & Company Accounts
If you subscribe to MyOTF as an Individual, then only the folks at MyOTF can see your profile information. If, however, you choose to print and share a Training Certificate with your current (or potential) employer, then they will be able to look at your MyOTF contact information and see the training record for the single course that the Verification Code applies to. For example, they will be able to see your profile information and that you completed your WHMIS training on a certain date.
If the organization that you work for has added you to MyOTF, then the Company Administrators have access to your information. MyOTF headquarters also has access.
End-users who complete training programs are offered an opportunity to download (and print) a certificate of training. These certificates also include a Verification Code that allow the viewer to access the basic information about the trainee, and their successful completion of the training program.

Security & Privacy FAQ
How long is data retained by MyOTF?
Data is maintained my MyOTF forever as it is used to track training compliance and history. However, when a user is deleted, their personal information and training history is also deleted.
Is the data shared with other organizations? If so, for what purpose?
When training is completed, a verification code is issued on the certificate. This verification code can be used by others to verify the validity of the certificate. Who ends up with this information is up to the person who is issued the certificate of completion. MyOTF does not share verification codes publically anywhere.
