McKellar is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its clients.
From January 1, 2004, all businesses engaged in commercial activities must comply with the “Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act”, and the “Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information”, which it incorporates. These obligations extend to brokers, including McKellar. The Act gives you rights concerning the privacy of your personal information. McKellar is responsible for the personal information we collect and hold. To ensure this accountability, we have developed this policy, and trained our principals and support staff about our policies and practices.
McKellar provides structured settlement services to a wide range of clients. In doing so, it produces direct marketing materials concerning its services and developments in the law.
Personal information is any information that identifies the Plaintiff/Claimant or by which their identify could be deduced.
If we did not collect and use this personal information we could not provide you with structured settlement options or a legal opinion with respect to the tax compliance of your settlement documents.
We collect information only by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way. Wherever possible we collect this personal information directly from you at the beginning of our relationship and throughout the life of your structure.
Sometimes we may obtain information about you from other sources, which include but are not limited to:
In most cases, we shall ask your lawyer or your insurance company to forward the consent you have provided them to our company so that we may collect, use, or disclose your personal sensitive information, for example medical records. Normally, we will ask for this consent in writing. In some circumstances, when we are requesting banking information, or address information, etc. and you provide this information to us verbally, your consent may be implied through your conduct.
We use your personal information to provide advice and services to you with respect to structured settlements, to administer our client databases and to include you in any direct marketing activities. If you tell us that you no longer wish to receive information about our services, or about new developments in the law, we will not send any further material.
McKellar does not disclose your personal information to any third party to enable them to market their products and services. For example, we do not provide our client mailing lists to other companies.
Under certain circumstances, McKellar will disclose your personal information:
Since we use your personal information to provide structured settlement services to you, it is important that the information be accurate and up-to-date.
McKellar takes all reasonable precautions to ensure that your personal information is kept safe from loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. Among the steps taken to protect your information are:
McKellar acknowledges that some clients about whom we collect personal information have certain legal rights concerning that information. These individuals have a right to be told of their privacy rights and our information handling practices. They have a right to know what information we have about them and summary information is available on request.
If McKellar holds information about you and you can establish that it is not accurate, complete and up-to-date, McKellar will take reasonable steps to correct it.
Your rights to access your personal information are not absolute.
We may deny access when:
If we deny your request for access to, or refuse a request to correct information, we shall explain why.
McKellar does not use your Social Insurance Number as a way of identifying or organizing the information we hold upon you.
Whenever it is legal and practicable, we may offer the opportunity to deal with general inquiries without providing your name (for example, by accessing general information on our website). The “Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act” requires us to confirm the identity of all new clients. It may also require us to disclose information to government agencies in relation to certain large cash transactions.
You should be aware that e-mail is not a 100% secure medium, and you should be aware of this when contacting us to send personal or confidential information.
If you have any questions, or wish to access your personal information, please write to our Privacy Officer, Rita Levato at:
649 Scottsdale Drive, Suite 100
Guelph, ON N1G 4T7
If you are not satisfied with our response, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada can be reached at:
112 Kent Street
Ottawa, ON K1A 1H3
If you apply to McKellar for a job, we need to consider your personal information, as part of our review process. We normally destroy all information from candidates after a decision has been made, not to hire them as an employee. If we offer you a job, which you accept, the information will be retained in accordance with our privacy procedures for employee records.
On our website, like most other commercial websites, we may monitor traffic patterns, site usage and related site information in order to optimize our web service. We may provide aggregated information to third parties, but these statistics do not include any identifiable personal information.
