10. A security alert requires the credit assessment agent holding the record concerned to notify the third party, to whom the agent communicates personal information the record contains or information produced on the basis of that information, of the third party’s obligation under section 19.1 of the Act respecting the protection of personal information in the private sector (chapter P-39.1) and of a telephone number at which the person concerned or, if applicable, the representative of the person concerned or the person having parental authority over the person concerned may be contacted to prove his or her identity.
