Protecting Your Privacy Is Our Policy
Intercity Shopping Centre ("ISC") respects the privacy of the individual and is committed to maintaining the confidentiality of Personal Information provided to us in a responsible manner. "Personal Information" means information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization.
ISC will comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (Canada) ("PIPEDA") as it pertains to our commercial activities. We only collect Personal Information to the extent necessary for the services we provide in our capacity as real estate managers. We will not collect, use or disclose Personal Information collected for any purpose other than for which it was originally collected, except with the consent of the individual, or as required by law.
Personal Information which ISC may collect, including through its website, is provided to us voluntarily through the use of our e-mail, by completing forms or applications, other correspondence, or discussions. In our capacity as real estate managers, Personal Information may be collected in meeting our obligations under our lease or contract with you as is necessary to properly manage or lease the premises and/or the properties. We may collect Personal Information to maintain communications with you, respond to your enquiries, evaluate credit worthiness, collect payments, process transactions, detect (including surveillance) and prevent fraud, suspicious claims and other illegal activities, and to meet professional, legal and regulatory requirements. When you communicate Personal Information over the Internet, you are deemed to consent to its collection, use and disclosure for the stated purposes, which typically includes name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and other information you submit with your request.
We do not sell, trade or exchange any Personal Information that we collect. We do not disclose Personal Information to any third parties except where this information is necessary to service, process or complete the transaction with you or as otherwise permitted by law. We use agents, contractors or companies to perform services on our behalf such as cleaning, security, accounting, temporary workers, brokers, and financial/credit companies; we will use appropriate means to provide an appropriate level of protection to the Personal Information that is being processed by third parties. Third party access to Personal Information is restricted as much as is reasonably possible.
We may collect e-mail and mailing addresses through our website. Our website, from time to time, may contain links to third parties provided for convenience; users should view individual privacy policies of the linked services directly to address their concerns. ISC does not assume responsibility for the privacy policies or practices of the linked websites accessed.
Individuals may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. We will inform you of the implications of such withdrawal, but generally a withdrawal of consent will affect the services we provide to you.
The collection of Personal Information by electronic and paper files is safeguarded by physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. Although no communication over the Internet is completely secure, ISC's website is monitored and protected by a certified firewall. Similarly, our electronic files are stored on an internal network, which is protected by encryption and a certified firewall.
While ISC will keep Personal Information as accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used, we will generally rely on individuals to provide updated-information.
ISC will only retain an individual's Personal Information for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by law. You are entitled to access or challenge the Personal Information that we have collected from you in accordance with PIPEDA. If we cannot provide you with access to your Personal Information, we will advise you within a reasonable timeframe.
