Protecting your Personal Information is very important to us, so we have taken the necessary organizational, technological and physical safeguards to protect it. When you submit sensitive information via the Onlia Agency Website, your information will be protected both on and offline.


Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted securely. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) are granted access to your Personal Information. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Any service providers we share your Personal Information with, are held to the same standard as us and are bound by our Privacy Notice and governing law.

Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention

Unless you consent otherwise, or required by law, Personal Information can only be used or disclosed by us for the purposes for which it was collected. We keep Personal Information only as long as required to serve those purposes.

Personal Information that is no longer required to fulfil the identified purposes is destroyed, erased or made anonymous. Onlia Agency has developed and implemented detailed retention principles and will ensure the destruction, or anonymization of Personal Information in a method that prevents improper access.

There are situations specific to our business where we will use, disclose and retain Personal Information as dictated by prudent business practices. Examples of these situations include:

  • Storage of information: transfer of Personal Information to cloud providers;
  • Regulatory: compliance with legal, audit and other regulatory or governmental regulations.


Onlia Agency may internally share your Personal Information for the purposes identified in this Notice with its employees, affiliates or other related companies outside of Canada.

Only such companies with legitimate business reasons will have access to your Personal Information and must ensure that Personal Information in their possession is held securely. 

We may also use service providers located outside of Canada to collect, use, disclose or store personal information. Where we do so, we will contractually require such third party to employ the appropriate security safeguards to protect your personal information, subject to the law in the third party jurisdiction. While the personal information is in another jurisdiction it may be accessed by the courts, law enforcement and national security authorities of that jurisdiction. The jurisdictions where personal information may be collected, used, disclosed and stored include the United States of America. To obtain further information about our policies and practices with respect to privacy, you may contact our Privacy Officer as indicated below.

We may transfer any Personal Information that we have about you in connection with a merger or sale involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.


We try to ensure that the Personal Information we collect is accurate, complete, and as up-to-date as possible to properly satisfy the purposes for which it is to be used. If we are unable to verify your Personal Information or contact you, we may be limited in our ability to provide you with our services.


Upon request, Onlia Agency will explain its Notice concerning the management of Personal Information. You can contact our Privacy Officer with any inquiries or complaints or if you require further information.

Individual Access

If you would like to obtain a copy of the Personal Information held about you by us, or update, correct, or delete any Personal Information that you have provided to us through your use of the Onlia Agency Website, or otherwise, or if you have any questions or suggestions for improving this Privacy Notice, please contact us.

If you have questions about unsubscribing from email or other communications, do so by using the email below in the Contact Us section.

We may only deny access to your Personal Information when such denial is: (1) required or authorized by law; (2) when granting you access would have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy, unless the requested information is severable from the personal information of other people; and (3) to protect our confidential commercial information. If we deny your request for access to or refuse a request to correct information, we shall explain why.

Challenging Compliance

Any individual may address a written challenge concerning our compliance with this Privacy Notice to our Privacy Officer at the contact information found at the end of this Notice. Onlia Agency will investigate all written complaints. Should we find that a complaint has reasonable grounds, we will take all appropriate steps to correct the Personal Information and amend the Notice or practice as required and will notify the individual about the outcome.

Changing our Privacy Agreement

From time to time, we may update or make amendments to the Notice to comply with any changes in legislation or to take into consideration any other issues that may arise. Should we make any changes, we will post the revised Notice on the Onlia Agency Website and/or provide you with a link or an email notification. We encourage you to check back often and keep yourself informed about our Notice. As we continue to serve you and where changes have been made to this Notice, our continued business relationship constitutes acceptance of those changes.
