Our Privacy Statement:
The bcmortgageactioncenter.com (hereinafter collectively called “the bcmortgageactioncenter.com”, “we”, “us” and similar personal pronouns) are committed to maintaining the accuracy, security and privacy of the personal Information submitted to us by our clients and others with whom we do business (hereinafter collectively referred to as “you”), in accordance with applicable legislation. This Privacy Policy is a statement of the principles and guidelines we apply with respect to your personal information.

Consent

BY SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION TO the BCMORTGAGEACTIONCENTER.COM OR TO ANY OF OUR ASSOCIATED BROKERAGES OR STAFF, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY COLLECT, USE AND DISCLOSE SUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND AS PERMITTED OR REQUIRED BY LAW.

You may refuse or withdraw your consent at any time by contacting the the bcmortgageactioncenter.com Privacy Officer. If you refuse or withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide, or continue to provide, our services to you.

We will rely, unless you specifically advise us to the contrary in writing at the time, upon your personal representation that you have all necessary authority and/or have obtained all necessary consents to enable us to collect, use and disclose any personal information of another individual which you may provide to us, for all purposes permitted by this Privacy Policy.

What Personal Information do we collect?

British Columbian and Canadian privacy legislation defines “personal information” very broadly. Generally speaking, it will be information which:

· is about an identifiable individual; or

· allows an individual to be identified; and

· in either case, is not information which is already “public” according to exceptions set forth in the applicable legislation.

In this policy, our use of the term “Personal Information” means information which is defined as being personal information under the applicable British Columbian or Canadian privacy legislation, and which is not exempted under such legislation.

Generally speaking Personal Information does not include what is considered business contact information: your name, title or position, business address, telephone number, facsimile number, or e-mail address. Certain information, such as your name, home address and telephone number, may be exempted under British Columbia legislation. In addition to this information, we may also collect your personal email address, income and employment information, asset, liability and net worth information, and other information which is necessary for us to gather in connection with an application, pre-approval, or request for information concerning mortgages, loans or other products or services purchased or applied for through the bcmortgageactioncenter.com or any of our affiliates or sub-mortgage brokers (including Personal Information about family members, beneficiaries, directors, officers, employees, potential guarantors and other relevant parties).

Why do we collect your Personal Information?

As financial service providers, we have a professional obligation to maintain in confidence information we receive within our role as a financial services provider, and nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit our common law obligations to you.

In general, the bcmortgageactioncenter.com collects, uses and discloses Personal Information about you in order to provide you with mortgage brokerage and related services. This will include some or all of the following purposes:

Providing mortgage brokerage services to you and offering products and services best suited to your needs, including arranging and/or renewing loan(s)/mortgage(s) and informing you of group creditor insurance and other products offered or approved by us or by lenders or other parties with whom we have business relationships and which may be of interest to you; Checking your credit-worthiness through credit bureau inquiries and personal information agents who have information on your financial position; Advising you of your financial options, as well as ongoing developments within the mortgage market and industry; Auditing the services provided to our clients; Complying with all municipal, provincial, federal and other applicable laws; Any specific purposes which are communicated to you prior to the collection of such Personal Information; and Any other purpose to which you consent. Except when otherwise permitted by law, we will only use your Personal Information for the purposes identified to you, either in this Policy or directly by the bcmortgageactioncenter.com or one of its affiliated brokerages. When Personal Information is to be used for a purpose not identified, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the new purpose is identified and consented to you prior to such use.

To whom do we disclose your Personal Information?

From time to time, the bcmortgageactioncenter.com may disclose your Personal Information to: prospective lenders, financial institutions, insurance companies and other suppliers of products or services the bcmortgageactioncenter.com is providing or offering to you; sub-mortgage brokers and other staff within the bcmortgageactioncenter.com and its affiliated brokerages for purposes related to the services we are providing to you; service providers, including organizations or individuals we have retained to perform functions on our behalf, such as office and registry services; organizations or individuals retained by us to evaluate your creditworthiness or to collect debts outstanding on an account;

any third party or parties, where you consent to such disclosure or where disclosure is required or permitted by law. As many of our dealings with lenders and other parties are conducted through electronic means of communication, you specifically consent to our transmission of your Personal Information by electronic means, including by email and facsimile transmission, for all purposes identified in this Policy or otherwise consented to by you.

Where do we store your Personal Information?

Your Personal Information is stored in secured locations and on computers and computer servers controlled by the bcmortgageactioncenter.com or its affiliated brokerages, located either at our offices or at the offices of our affiliated brokerages. Once a file or matter has been completed, paper records may be stored in off-site storage facilities, and are subject to destruction after such reasonable period of time as the bcmortgageactioncenter.com determines is appropriate to meet the requirements of any applicable regulatory bodies and/or any other applicable laws or regulations, statutory or otherwise, from time to time.
