We do not collect any personal information indirectly through publicly-available sources or authorized third-parties.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We will use your personal information as provided to create and manage a database of anyone negatively impacted by moving companies across Canada. The information will be analyzed at both the individual and aggregate level to identify possible trends, similarities between cases, and inform our strategic plan to offer better services and guidance to impacted people and relevant authorities.

We have executed contractual agreements with the following service providers to only use the information for the purposes of providing us the necessary services.

HOW WE DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION

You are able to update your consent at any time.
If you do not opt in, we will never disclose your personal information in identifiable format. All public reporting will be done at the aggregate level, taking care not to identify you specifically.
However, if we are required to respond to a lawful access request from law enforcement or government agencies responsible for moving company misconduct, we will notify you of such disclosure prior to the disclosure occurring.
