WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
For the purpose of this Privacy Statement, “Personal Information” is defined as information about an identifiable individual, or information that allows an individual to be identified and which is not business related. As a general rule, we do not collect Personal Information.
Should we in fact ask for your Personal Information, we will inform you as to why we are collecting it, and how it will be used.
We record and do monitoring of all telephone conversations that you may have. Further, all communications by mail, electronic communications system (including, without limitation, email), facsimile or otherwise may be monitored and recorded and archived.
WHEN WE DISCLOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION
Should we collect your Personal Information, we will not sell, license, trade or rent your Personal Information to or with any third party. We may provide your personal information to our affiliates for the purposes for which it was collected.
If you provide us with Personal Information, we may provide it to third parties engaged to assist us in providing services to you. These service providers are prohibited from using your Personal Information for any purpose other than to provide this assistance to us.
We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to a third party (including, for example, any regulatory or governmental body) if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so, or a request from a regulatory or self-regulatory body.
We reserve the right to disclose and/or transfer Personal Information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of the business or assets or shares or an affiliate of ours in order for you to continue to receive the same products and services from the third-party acquirer.
We shall protect your Personal Information by security measures appropriate to the information we collect. These may include:
- Adopting policies and procedures that put in place physical, electronic and other safeguards to keep your personal information safe;
- Limiting access to personal information to those employees who need it to perform their job duties;
- Requiring third parties that perform services for us to agree to keep your information strictly confidential;
- Protecting information of our former clients to the same extent as our current clients.
At any time, you may also access your file and the personal information held by us, review it, modify it, correct it or request that we delete it by sending a written request to the attention of the Compliance Department at 1250 Rene-Levesque suite 4025, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3B 4W8.
