Personal Information We Collect

“Personal information” means information about an identifiable individual as described under Canadian privacy laws.

Generally, personal information does not include any business contact information that is solely used to communicate with you in relation to your employment, business or profession, such as your name, position name or title, work address, work telephone number, work fax number or work e-mail address.

We may collect, use, and disclose different types of personal information, depending on our relationship with you. Generally, we collect the following types of personal information (not all of which may apply to you): 

  • identity information, such as your name, username or similar identifier, marital status, title, date of birth and gender
  • contact information, such as your address, e-mail address and telephone numbers
  • financial information, such as your bank account number, credit information and payment card details used to purchase products or services
  • technical and usage information when you use our website, such as your internet protocol (IP) address, login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access our website
  • professional information, such as your professional designations and the name of your employer
  • marketing and communications information, such as your preferences for receiving our promotional messages

We also collect, use and share aggregated and anonymized data for any purpose. Aggregated and anonymized data is not considered personal information because it cannot be used to identify you.

How We Use Your Personal Information

We generally use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • to determine your eligibility for our services in accordance with applicable laws and our policies, including your eligibility for credit
  • To provide you with ongoing services
  • to respond to your inquiries, complaints or requests
  • to communicate with you through customer communications
  • to manage our business and our arrangements, including to detect and prevent errors and fraud
  • to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our operations, products, services, and programs
  • to investigate legal claims and protect our rights, operations or property and to enforce our rights
  • for such other purposes as you may consent to from time to time
  • as otherwise required or permitted by law

 We do not use your personal information to engage in interest-based or behavioral advertising of our services across third-party websites or service offerings.

 You have a variety of tools to control the information collected by cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies when you use our website. For example, you can use controls in your internet browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies and to withdraw your consent by clearing or blocking cookies.

How We Share Your Personal Information

We generally identify to whom, and for what purposes, we will disclose your personal information (and we obtain your consent to such disclosure) at the time we collect your personal information. For example, we may obtain your consent to disclose your personal information to our affiliates and partner organizations, such as Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. and its Canadian subsidiaries, so that they can assist in providing you with services.

If you are seeking our credit services, we may disclose your personal information to credit rating agencies, credit bureaus and other financial intermediaries for the purpose of assessing your credit worthiness.

We may disclose your information when we believe such disclosure is required or permitted by law. In addition, we may disclose your personal information to a third party in the event of any significant business transaction, such as a merger or reorganization.

We rely on service providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf, such as financial institutions, payment card processors, technical support providers, and data storage and processing service providers. If we transfer your personal information to a service provider, we require that they maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and keep it secure. We also require that our service providers comply with applicable privacy laws and only use your personal information for the limited purposes for which it is provided.

Your Consent to the Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information

We collect, use, and disclose your personal information with your consent or as permitted or required by law. How we obtain your consent, including whether it is express or implied, will depend on the circumstances and the sensitivity of the personal information in question. Generally, we will seek your consent at the time we collect your personal information, either orally, electronically, or in writing.

If you provide personal information about another individual to us, it is your responsibility to obtain the consent of that individual to enable us to collect, use and disclose their information as described in this Privacy Statement.

If you wish to withdraw your consent to our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, please contact us using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We will accommodate your request to withdraw consent, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. Withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no longer be able to provide you with certain products or services.

Opting Out of Marketing Communications

If you no longer want to receive marketing-related e-mails from us, you may opt out of receiving marketing-related e-mails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any e-mail you receive from us. You may also opt out by contacting us directly using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Please note that if you opt out from receiving marketing-related e-mails, we may still need to send you communications about your use of our products or services, or other matters.

Retention, Storage, and International Transfer of Personal Information

We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, and as permitted or required by law.

We may transfer your personal information outside of Canada to the United States,  to fulfil the purpose for which we collected it, including for processing and storage by service providers. While your personal information is outside of Canada, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is located, which may have different data protection laws than Canada. Those laws may require disclosure of your personal information to authorities in that country. For more information about our policies and practices regarding service providers outside of Canada, contact us using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Information Security

We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual, and technological security measures in an effort to protect your personal information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example:

  • we train our employees and agents on the importance of safeguarding personal information
  • we restrict access to your personal information to those employees or agents who need access for authorized purposes
  • we protect personal information in electronic form using technological means such as firewalls, access controls, and encryption

Despite these measures, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will always be effective. A breach of security safeguards can result in such risks as phishing and identity theft. In such cases, we will act promptly to mitigate the risks and to inform you where there is a real risk of significant harm, or as otherwise required by law.

We may also require that you assist us in safeguarding your personal information. For example, you should maintain the security and confidentiality of any unique sign-in link that we provide you to access the Momentus system.

If you have reason to believe that your personal information is no longer secure, please contact us immediately using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information

We expect you to supply us with updates to your personal information, when required. We will not routinely update your personal information unless such a process is necessary. 

You may make a request to review any personal information about you that we have collected, used, or disclosed, and we will provide you with any such personal information to the extent required by applicable laws. 

You may also challenge the accuracy or completeness of your personal information in our records. If you demonstrate that your personal information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend your personal information as required.

We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your personal information. Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose. We will not charge you any fees to access your personal information in our records without first providing you with an estimate of the approximate fees, if any.

If you object to how we handle your request, you may have the right to make a complaint to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada or the applicable provincial privacy commissioner.

Third-Party Websites and Services

We may provide links to third-party websites, including those of affiliates,  for your convenience and information. We may also make opportunities available to you to purchase, subscribe to, or use other products or services from third parties with different privacy practices. Those other websites, products, or services are governed by the privacy statements and policies of the respective third party. This Privacy Statement does not extend to any websites, products, or services provided by third parties. We do not assume responsibility for the privacy practices of third parties and we encourage you to review all third-party privacy statements prior to using third-party websites, products, or services.
