If you chose to contact us using our digital platforms to book an appointment or to obtain information on your current situation or on our services, the data that you provide will be treated confidentially by our staff. None of the information provided will be sent to your creditors, to your employer or to the government. Moreover, contacting us does not impact your credit report or credit score.

BGC takes all reasonable technical means to provide a safe environment and to protect its users’ personal information, such as HTTPS secured portal, firewalls, antivirus, access management, intrusion detection and redundancy of servers.
HOWEVER, CONSIDERING THE NATURE OF THE INTERNET AS A PUBLIC NETWORK, THE USER RECOGNIZES AND ACCEPTS THAT SECURITY OF DATA TRANSMISSION OVER THE INTERNET CANNOT BE GUARANTEED. THEREFORE, BGC CANNOT GUARANTEE NOR ASSUME ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY BREACH OF CONFIDENTIALITY, HACKING, VIRUS, LOSS OR ALTERATION OF DATA PROVIDED BY THE USER OVER THE INTERNET OR HOSTED ON BGC’S SYSTEMS.

We are recommending that you read the personal information protection policy provided on those websites carefully in order to determine whether or not you want to use those websites in light of their practices regarding personal information protection.
When you consult a licensed insolvency trustee, he or she must analyze your situation in order to recommend the best solution. To carry out this analysis, our staff will ask you to provide personal information such as information regarding your debts, your income and expenses, your assets and your personal situation. We will ask for sensitive information including account numbers, identity documents, social insurance number, banking data, and information regarding your investments and the transactions that you could have concluded in the past.
We have implemented security measures to protect you from loss or unauthorized use of your personal information such as document shredding, IT protection and limited access to the servers. Only people whose functions require access to personal information will be given access to the personal information collected.
Moreover, your personal information will only be used to carry out our mandates. It will not be transferred nor sold to a third party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information in connection with legal proceedings or an investigation, to comply with a court order or otherwise under the applicable law.
This Personal Information Protection Policy may be updated periodically by BGC, in its sole discretion, based on changes in our privacy practices. The revised Personal Information Protection Policy will be made available on the website. We will process your personal information in accordance with the Personal Information Protection Policy in force at the time of collection of such information or in the manner agreed with you.
