Website Privacy Notice
Effective Date: July 1, 2019
Quantifi Inc. (“Quantifi” or “we”) takes privacy and data security seriously. We are committed to transparency in the collection and use of your personal information. The Privacy Notice below describes how we use personal information, and the circumstances under which we may share this information. This Privacy Notice applies to the privacy practices of Quantifi on its website located at https://quantifi.ca/, as well as offline.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Quantifi provides vehicle financing to interested borrowers. If you express interest in a car loan, our car dealership business partners may, with your consent, provide us with your personal information, including, your full name, date of birth, phone number, Social Insurance Number, marital status, mailing address, details about your desired purchase or loan, and the name of your current employer (if applicable). We use this information to verify your identity, to assess your eligibility to receive a loan, and to contact you by text-message or email regarding Quantifi’s services.
You can unsubscribe from our text-message or email communications by following the instructions in those communications, or by contacting our privacy officer at email@example.com.
If you click on the referral link in the initial text message, you can choose to proceed with a loan application. If you complete a loan application, we collect personal information including your full name, your employment status and employer, and mailing address. We also collect information related to each of your bank accounts, including the account number, type of account, the names of any joint-account holders, your relationship with any joint-account holders, and a complete record of all transactions in your bank accounts over the last 365 days. Quantifi is able to view the last 365 days of transactions in the same way that you can view your transactions while online banking.
We use this information to assess your eligibility to receive a loan (including through the use of our loan application software), and to improve the accuracy and performance of our loan application evaluation software.
If one of your banks is not listed on our website, we may collect the name of the institution that you bank with. We use this information to evaluate which banks to include in future updates to our services.
If you are assessed as being provisionally eligible to receive a loan, Quantifi requests your consent to perform a credit check to confirm your eligibility.
If you are approved for a loan, Quantifi may collect further information from you to process the loan and arrange for repayment, including your drivers license, references, and payment information, and make and model of vehicle which you are interested in purchasing or leasing.
If you are approved for a loan, Quantifi may make such loan conditional on the installation of a geolocation device in the vehicle which you lease or purchase. We collect the location of the vehicle in order to secure the collateral of your loan with Quantifi.
We may collect personal information in relation to a job application or related inquiry, including information contained in a resume or cover letter. We use this information for the purpose of reviewing applications for current and future employment opportunities at Quantifi.
You may select if you wish to receive email marketing communications with updates and other information regarding Quantifi by providing us with your email.
You can opt out of receiving marketing emails from us using the opt-out or “unsubscribe” instructions provided in the communication. Alternatively, you may contact our Privacy Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you contact us with a comment or question, or regarding the status of your loan application or loan, we collect the information you provide, along with additional information that we may need to help us promptly respond to your inquiry. We retain this information to assist you in the future and to improve our customer service and service offerings. We also use personal information to establish and manage our relationship with you and provide quality service.
