THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

New Leaf collects information by various methods including information actively provided by its clients, and (with consent) credit checks and information arising from our credit counselling services.

The types of personal information we collect include name and contact information, credit information, debt information, income and financial information. We may record calls to or from our staff for purposes of accuracy, performance reviews and training.

HOW WE USE THIS INFORMATION

This information is only used to provide our services to our clients. The client’s contact information may also be used for other internal New Leaf purposes such as sending New Leaf’s newsletters, updates, announcements and other information or to better serve our clients.

Opt-Out Policy, Your Newsletter and Email Subscriptions.

You can opt-out or unsubscribe to a newsletter or other email list at any time by following the instructions at the end of the newsletters or emails you receive. Please allow five to ten business days for changes to take effect. Client service-related communications are an integral part of the services you receive from us and you may continue to receive such service-related emails unless you cancel your account, even if you opt out of the newsletters or email list. If you have provided more than one email address to us, you may continue to be contacted unless you request to unsubscribe each email address you have provided. You may also opt-out of receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by contacting us at the unsubscribe email or by replying to an existing email with your request to be removed from the mailing list or click here.

New Leaf may use aggregate or anonymous information which will not be linked to identified individuals for various other uses for itself and third parties.

WHO WE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH

New Leaf does not share personal information with any third parties except as required to provide or improve our services. The nature of our services requires New Leaf to disclose personal information to creditors. New Leaf may provide personal information to its consultants, subcontractors and professional advisers or other third-parties (each of which shall be bound by privacy obligations) to assist New Leaf’s uses disclosed herein. If New Leaf refers a client to a third party for advice or services New Leaf does not provide, it will share that client’s personal information with the third party after the client agrees to use such services.

We may engage parties located in the United States to help provide our services, but any client personal information they collect or view remains on servers that reside in Canada.

SECURITY

You will be promptly notified in writing in the event of theft, loss, unauthorized use or release of your non-public personal information.
