Collection of information
The purchase of a vehicle requires a considerable collection of non-public personal information. For example, if we sell or lease a vehicle (giving you credit at your request), we will contact you to determine your creditworthiness. We may also obtain information from a credit bureau. We may also obtain information from third parties such as employers, referrals and insurance companies.
Some information we obtain from you may be required by provincial or federal agencies, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Canada Revenue Agency. This information may be needed even if you had to pay for your vehicle in cash, for example, a driver's license or a social insurance number..
