Liberty Mutual Canada (“Liberty”) provides a wide range of commercial insurance products and services to Canadian business.
“Personal information” means information about an identifiable individual. This includes details that are identifiable to an individual, such as date of birth, personal address and telephone number, family status, medical and health records, personal assets or income, driving record, previous insurance and claims experience. We collect this information only as necessary to supply you with the insurance products we provide.
For the visitors of our website, we automatically capture server log file information such as your IP address, information about the devices you use to access the sites (e.g., browser type/version, OS type/version, device type/version), referring/exit pages, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We use this information to administer our website, diagnose and fix technical issues and monitor the security of our environments. We may also use server log file information for other business purposes relating to the operation, improvement and enhancement of our website.
We typically collect, use and sometimes disclose personal information for the following purposes:
Liberty also consults its existing files for these purposes.
Liberty may also use, process or disclose personal information in order to offer other services and products available through Liberty or its affiliates. If as an individual, you would rather not have your personal information used for this purpose, please contact Liberty by email at email@example.com or call 1.800.461.5079.
Liberty safeguards the integrity of personal information by means appropriate to its sensitivity. Physical security is maintained over paper files and data security over digital files. Access is granted only to those who require it for authorized purposes. In addition, Liberty takes reasonable steps to maintain the accuracy of all information it collects, uses or discloses. Of course, Liberty relies on its policyholders and its third party suppliers (described below) to provide all material information and to notify Liberty of any changes.
At Liberty, personal information is collected primarily through various third party suppliers such as insurance brokers, external claims adjusters and others, who have the responsibility of obtaining appropriate consent for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
Consent may be express and implied. Express consent is explicit, and obtained through verbal or written means. Implied consent is inferred when the purpose for which personal information is collected is obvious by the very nature of the transaction.
Consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information can be withdrawn by notice in writing to our Liberty Mutual Canada Chief Privacy Officer. While you may always withdraw your consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information for marketing purposes, please note that any complete withdrawal of consent may result in our being unable to continue to provide insurance services to you.
To assist in the provision of insurance products and services, Liberty may make personal information available to:
These recipient organizations may only use your personal information for purposes for which you have provided consent or which are permitted by applicable law without your consent. In all cases they are obligated to protect the privacy of what they have been entrusted with.
Your personal information may be transferred to and processed in locations outside Canada.
If you would like to learn more about our use of service providers located outside of Canada, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Liberty keeps personal information only as long as it remains necessary or relevant for the identified purposes or for such longer period as required by law.
An individual has the right to request to access, review and, if applicable, correct the personal information held by us. However, the right to access is not absolute and there are certain exceptions established by law. For example, if the information which is requested is subject to a legal privilege or is confidential commercial information, the request may be declined.
A request for access must be in writing and must provide satisfactory identification and proof of entitlement. A reasonable charge may be made for providing requested information.
