The first step in the process is to provide us with some basic information so our team can reach out to you to start the process and help you find your new vehicle.
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name or business contact information of an employee of an organization.
AutoCanada Inc., and the AutoCanada group of dealerships (referred to in this policy as “AutoCanada” or “we” or “us”) are responsible for protecting the personal information of our existing customers and prospects (referred to in this policy as “customers” or “you”) that is in our custody or under our control, including personal information that has been transferred to or received from a third party. The personal information is collected in accordance with applicable privacy legislation and is governed by this policy.
We collect personal information from you to serve you better. Personal information better helps us understand your automotive and related needs, allows us to communicate effectively with you, and allows us to provide you services and products.
We may collect, use and disclose personal information for the following purposes:
We refer to these as our Identified Purposes.
The collection, use and disclosure of personal information depends on how a customer does business with us. We gather information from customers in the following ways:
When you provide information to us, your personal information may be used or disclosed for the Identified Purposes among AutoCanada, their affiliates, automobile manufacturers, parts manufacturers and/or third parties, including third party financing companies and credit agencies. The AutoCanada group of dealerships may verify such information or obtain additional personal information about you in question by checking with government agencies, credit bureaus, motor vehicle agencies and other fact collecting and verifying entities to assist us in the Identified Purposes.
Your knowledge and consent is generally required before we may collect, use or disclose your personal information. Explicit consent is not required where your consent is deemed by law or not required by law. These situations may include an investigation by the police where personal information is publicly available or in situations where otherwise permitted by law. In cases where we collect personal information that requires consent, we will obtain specific written or oral consent from you before collecting, using or disclosing such information. If you provide information regarding eligibility for financing, you are consenting to our disclosure of such information to third party financing companies and/or credit agencies.
Personal information will be kept at the offices of AutoCanada and/or a dealer. All electronic and paper based information will be maintained under strict security systems appropriate to sensitivity of the personal information to safeguard all personal information that is in the custody or in the control of AutoCanada and/or the dealership from unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal, or similar risks.
All third parties that obtain personal information from AutoCanada and/or a dealership (with respect to financing requests and insurance applications, for example) are contractually required to protect customers’ confidentiality in a manner consistent with this policy, and/or as required by law.
You may access the personal information that we maintain in our custody or under our control.
If you want access to your personal information you must make a request in writing to AutoCanada’s Privacy Officer, stating the specific personal information you are requesting and the name of your dealership.
You may withdraw your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information at any time on reasonable notice, subject to legal or contractual restrictions (such as where we have arranged to extend credit to you and are required to collect or disclose your personal information on an ongoing basis from or to third parties). If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products and services to you. You may withdraw same by contacting us as per below.
