Personal information is generally any information about an identifiable individual other than the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization, provided that such business contact information is used solely to contact the employee in a professional or business capacity.
E-mail messages may contain privileged or confidential information. If you are not the intended recipient of a communication or if you receive one in error, please notify the sender and destroy the message without copying or disclosing its contents.
You will be told why the use of the personal information collected is necessary for certain activities on our sites (e.g., when you contact us with a question or request). For these activities, we may collect, for example, your name, street address, telephone number, e-mail address and postal code. When you complete an application for a loan or real estate products and services on an agent/broker's site, it may be necessary for us to obtain additional information from third party sources. We do not collect more information than we need.
The agent/broker site collects some information about you using technological means. Therefore, it may not be readily apparent to you that this information is being collected. For example, when you visit our sites, your IP address may be collected so that we know how many times we have been visited by different individuals. An IP address is often associated with the location from which you enter the Internet, i.e., your Internet Service Provider, business or company. This information is not personally identifiable.
We collect and use personal information to respond to your questions or comments, to send you information about our real estate or mortgage services or about our company, to promote products and services of third party suppliers to the agent/broker, to administer certain services identified to you at the time of collection, to refer you (with your consent) to another agent or broker for a service we cannot provide. We will use this information for statistical analysis and marketing purposes on a non-identifying basis.
In no event shall its directors, employees, brokers or suppliers be liable, directly or indirectly, for any direct, indirect, consequential, punitive, special or other damages: loss of data, income or profit; loss of or damage to property; or claims of third parties arising out of or in connection with the use of this web site and its contents or any other hyperlinked web site.
Personal information is used by us and others on our behalf. We will only disclose it to the following people and for the following purposes:
We will let you know at the time the information is collected if we plan to share it with a third party; we will tell you the type of company with whom we will share the collected information; we will describe the information we will share (such as your street address or email address); and we will only share the data if you agree. We recommend that you contact these third parties directly for additional information about their privacy policies.
However, we may also (a) disclose personal information to a prospective purchaser in connection with a transaction involving the sale of our business, and (b) send personal information abroad for the purposes identified above, including for processing and storage by service providers in connection with such purposes. Please note that while such information is outside of Canada, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and may be subject to disclosure to governments, courts, law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that country and in accordance with its laws.
