"Personal Information" means any information about an identifiable individual. In order to be able to assist you as a client, we need access to all relevant facts and information that relate to your financial situation. This information will necessarily include Personal Information about you and about other individuals.
We do not, except where otherwise permitted by law, collect, use or disclose Personal Information unless you are aware of the purposes for which the information will be used or disclosed, and have given your consent to such use or disclosure.
Where practical, we try to collect Personal Information directly from the person to whom the information relates. When necessary, we will collect Personal Information from other sources. We limit our collection of Personal Information to include only what is necessary to assist you as a client. In the course of providing services to you we may be required to obtain information or assets from third parties, for example credit checking organizations.
We limit our use of Personal Information to those purposes which have been disclosed to you, or for purposes which are otherwise permitted by law. We use and disclose Personal Information in compliance with all applicable federal and provincial privacy legislation.
Specifically, we use and disclose Personal Information in the following circumstances:
We recognize our obligation to protect your Personal Information. This includes our obligation to protect the Personal Information we have gathered about you and about other individuals as part of providing our services. We have therefore put in place security measures to secure against the unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or destruction of your Personal Information.
When working you, we highlight the importance of providing us with accurate and complete information. You can always request access to the Personal Information we have collected about you.
We retain your Personal Information as long as necessary to provide the services that you require and in accordance with relevant legislation.
We and our service providers may process, store and use your personal information at facilities in various countries, including Canada, the United States and potentially in Europe and Asia. The personal protection laws of those other countries may differ from the laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside. By providing your Personal Information, you consent to the transfer of your personal information to facilities located in other countries and the processing and storage of your Personal Information at those facilities. No matter what country your information is in, we comply with applicable law and will also abide by the commitments we make in this Policy. To learn more about our security features, click here.
