Application and Scope
Definition of Personal information
Collection and Use of Personal Information
We collect most of our information about you directly from you, with your consent.
We usually collect your name, address, phone number(s), email address, occupation, employer’s name, birth date, annual income, net worth, assets, liabilities, credit history, investment objectives, banking information, as well as other account and payment information, including information pertaining to your use of our products and services when you register to Mortgage Alliance services. We may also collect other information such as your social insurance number, driver’s license or passport number, when required and/or authorized by law, for instance to fulfill regulatory and other governmental obligations and to distinguish you from other clients with similar names.
We may also obtain information about you from third parties, with your consent. For example, for credit evaluation purposes, we may need to determine your creditworthiness through contact with an independent credit reporting agency or another source, which may include account information. Mortgage Alliance uses this information to help determine the product or service that is suitable to your mortgage needs. We may also collect personal information from other third parties, such as your spouse, if you are applying for certain products and services, and information about beneficial owners, intermediaries and other parties.
Mortgage Alliance generally collects personal information from or about its customers and other individuals with whom it deals for the following purposes:
If you have applied for employment with Mortgage Alliance, the personal information submitted with your job application will be used for recruitment and other customary human resources purposes. For example, we may send you information about new job opportunities within Mortgage Alliance as well as other career development resources.
Mortgage Alliance offers you the opportunity to use simulators. These simulators are designed to collect information about you or your financial situation. The details are then used to establish your type of profile with a view to helping you choose the most suitable product for your particular needs.
Mortgage Alliance obtains consent from the individuals concerned for the collection, use or disclosure of personal information through various means. The most common method we use to obtain a customer’s consent is by way of the customer’s consent as confirmed by consent forms. Where practicable, we may also obtain a customer’s consent through electronic communications or other written documentation.
In certain circumstances, personal information may be collected, used or disclosed without consent. These exceptional circumstances may include:
Right to Withdraw Consent
Consent may be withdrawn at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. Depending on the circumstances, however, any withdrawal or amendment to your consent may prevent us from providing you, or continuing to provide you, with Mortgage Alliance products and services or information that may be of value to you.

If you no longer want to receive any notifications, you can unsubscribe at any time.
Quality and Access Rights
Personal Information Outside of Canada
