Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy. Our privacy policy provides an overview of how we collect, use and disclose the Personal Information of our clients. We recognize the importance of privacy and the sensitivity of Personal Information received by us in the course of our business. This policy has been developed with those obligations in mind.

Our Need for Personal Information

"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.

Consent

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.

Collection

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.

Use and Disclosure

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:

  • If you decide to enter into a formal proposal with the assistance of a Licensed Insolvency Trustee ("LIT"), we will provide certain documents containing personal and financial information to the LIT. The LIT will file this information with the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, a federal government agency, to initiate protection for you under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (the "Act"). It will be necessary to notify your creditors of your legal status as a debtor under the provisions of the Act. They will also have access to certain documents, including your Statement of Affairs.
  • If you agree for us to provide you with credit rebuilding or financial services, we may provide your financial information to a related company or selected arms' length affiliates who may provide certain financial services or products to you in order to help rebuild your credit score or to access financial products and services.
  • When the law requires us to disclose it. We will notify you when we are asked to provide your Personal Information in this way unless we are legally prohibited from doing this. When we do receive this type of request, we will only release your Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party's request to disclose your information.

Security of Personal Information

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.

Accuracy and Access

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.

Retention

We retain your Personal Information as long as necessary to provide the services that you require and in accordance with relevant legislation.
