At Winnipeg Sell My Home, we are committed to providing our customers and members with exceptional service. As providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some personal information about our customers and members, protecting their personal information is one of our highest priorities.
While we have always respected our customers and members privacy and safeguarded their personal information, we have strengthened our commitment to protecting personal information as a result of Manitoba’s Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). PIPA, which came into effect on March 15, 2018, sets out the ground rules for how MB businesses and not-for-profit organizations may collect, use and disclose personal information.
We will inform our customers and members of why and how we collect, use and disclose their personal information, obtain their consent where required, and only handle their personal information in a manner that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances.
This Personal Information Protection Policy, in compliance with PIPA, outlines the principles and practices we will follow in protecting customers’ and members’ personal information. Our privacy commitment includes ensuring the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of our customers’ and members’ personal information and allowing our customers and members to request access to, and correction of, their personal information.
