What we collect and why we need it

You look to us to offer responsible, reliable financial services and value-added advice. Collecting current, accurate personal information allows us to provide you with the best possible financial advice, as well as products and services you may find valuable.

To this end, Outlook Financial, our parent company Assiniboine Credit Union and our affiliates and partners in the Canadian Credit Union system collect, use or disclose your personal information to:

  • verify your identity.
  • provide you with the products and services you request.
  • determine what products or services may benefit you.
  • develop, offer, manage, and provide products and services that meet your needs.
  • determine what products or services meet your needs.
  • determine your eligibility for products and services.
  • detect and prevent fraud, and to help safeguard your and our financial interests.
  • help us collect debts or enforce obligations which are owed or guaranteed by you to us.
  • respond to lawful requests for information about you.
  • meet those purposes we may indicate on our website or otherwise communicate with you.
  • meet our regulatory requirements.
  • carry out any other purpose that you authorize or that is required or permitted by law.

The information we request depends on the product or service you want. Much of the personal information we ask for is either mandatory by law or vital for us to be able to do business with you. Here are a few examples where you must provide us with specific information in order to obtain the product or service you want.

  • Social Insurance Number (SIN) - In order to comply with the Canada Revenue Agency's income reporting requirements, we must collect your SIN when you open a savings account or apply for an RRSP, RRIF or TFSA or other product that earns investment income.
  • Financial Information - Your financial information is also necessary to access your eligibility for credit products you request, such as line of credit, loan or mortgage. At the same time, it helps us give you the most appropriate financial planning advice about investments and other products and services.
  • Health Information - Information about your health may be required to determine your eligibility for some of the insurance products you request.
  • Date of Birth - Knowing your birth date helps us identify you and reduces the risk if someone is trying to impersonate you.

Transfer of Personal Information to Service Providers Outside Canada

We may engage service providers to assist us in fulfilling the purposes that are set out in this agreement, and in some instances, these service providers may be located outside Canada. We only select service providers that protect personal information in a manner that is comparable to the protection we provide under our own privacy policies. Please be advised that personal information may be subject to, and accessed under, the laws of the countries in which our service providers operate. If you have any questions about our transfer of personal information to our service providers outside Canada, or if you would like to learn more about our privacy policies in that regard, please contact our Privacy Officer.
