Personal Information That We Collect

Specifically, CREIT collects your name and contact information (including your address, phone number and e-mail address) when you register for certain Web site features or services or when you request information from CREIT. In addition, if you apply for employment through the Web site, CREIT collects any personal information that you submit, including information contained in resumes. In addition, CREIT collects information that you provide when you make voluntary submissions using features of the Web site (e.g. Web site blogs). Like many other websites, CREIT uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to better understand how the Web site is used, to make sure the Web site’s information and dynamic content are served correctly, and to improve performance of the Web site.

How We Use Your Personal Information
The information that CREIT collects is used to confirm your identity and your eligibility for certain Web site features and services (e.g. tenant services), to establish and administer your account for certain Web site features and services, to deliver requested materials to you, to respond to your questions, or to deliver a product of service that you have requested. If you apply for employment with CREIT, your information is used to evaluate your suitability for employment Third party service providers may be engaged by CREIT to perform a variety of functions, such as to deliver items that you have requested from CREIT or to provide technical services for the Web site. These third party providers may have access to personal information about you if needed to perform the functions for which they are retained. However, CREIT directs that those companies may only use such personal information for the purpose of performing these functions and may not use it for any other purpose. In these cases, when information is shared, CREIT requires reasonable assurance that the third parties will protect your information in conformity with CREIT’s privacy practices. Some of these service providers may be located outside of Canada, in which case personal information shared with them will be subject to the laws of the country in which the service provider is located. That country may have laws that require that personal information be disclosed to government bodies or courts under different circumstances than would CREIT. CREIT will not otherwise use your personal information except as permitted or required by law

In the event of a sale, amalgamation, re-organization, transfer or financing of parts of our some or all of CREIT’s business, your personal information may be disclosed to an acquiring organization, either as part of due diligence and/or on completion of the transaction. If your personal information is ever disclosed to an unaffiliated third party in this context, CREIT will require that third party to agree to protect your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. CREIT will not otherwise, without your consent, disclose your personal information for any purpose other than as identified in this Privacy Policy, except where permitted or required by law.

Retention of Personal Information
CREIT will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was collected and to comply with legal record-keeping requirements.
