2. Sharing your personal information

The following provides information about purposes for which we may share your personal information. Our privacy practices vary depending on the type of information and sharing mechanisms.

With our Employees

Employee Training

We will share your personal information to OneVest employees on a need-to-know basis. These employees require access in order to fulfill their job requirements and/or provide you with our products and/or services.

Since we are committed to raising awareness and building knowledge of privacy throughout OneVest, the following training and awareness initiatives will take place:

  1. All new employees are required to take the privacy e-learning training module;
  2. Targeted training will be delivered to key internal groups that are considered high risk due to the amount and sensitivity of the employee or customer information they manage (as part of OneVest’s annual compliance training program); and
  3. On an ongoing basis, the Privacy Officer (“PO”) or delegate will deliver privacy briefings to the senior executive team and onboarding of new executives on their accountabilities under privacy legislation and targeted, proactive risk management/mitigation. The points of discussion will be recent regulatory changes, changing customer expectations, privacy trends and potential impacts on OneVest’s business operations and workplace.

The Compliance department will ensure that all new employees have received, reviewed, and understood their obligation to protect nonpublic personal information. The Chief Compliance Officer (“CCO”) or delegate will also remind all employees of their privacy protection obligations in connection with OneVest’s annual compliance training.

Conducting Privacy Impact Assessments

In addition to these training and awareness initiatives, Privacy Impact Assessment(s) (“PIA[s]”) will also be conducted on new and modified activities or initiatives to help identify and mitigate risks to individuals’ privacy. A PIA is a risk management process that helps organizations ensure that they meet legislative requirements and identify the impacts that their programs and activities will have on individuals’ privacy.

A PIA is generally required if OneVest’s activity or initiative may have an impact on the personal information of individuals. If any of the following instances occur, this will trigger the need for OneVest to conduct a PIA:

  • when personal information may be used as part of a decision-making process that directly affects the individual;
  • when there are major changes to existing activities or initiatives where personal information may be used for an administrative purpose (meaning as part of a decision-making process that directly affects the individual); or
  • when there are major changes to existing programs or activities as a result of contracting out or transferring activities or initiatives to another vendor, service provider or other third party.

The key employees who are involved in the PIA process include the following:

  • Program staff (the individual or group of people responsible for developing and delivering the activity or initiative)
  • Privacy staff (includes the PO)
  • Internal/external legal counsel (if applicable)
  • Information technology (“IT”) team (as required)
  • Front-line staff (as required)
  • Private-sector third parties, if involved in the program or activity
  • Senior executive(s) responsible for new or substantially changed programs or activities

We may not need to engage all of the parties listed above for each PIA, however, at a minimum, OneVest will involve relevant program and privacy staff in any PIA process.

With our Business Partners and Service Providers

We take reasonable steps to ensure that any business partners and service providers who we entrust with your personal information are reputable and have safeguards in place to help protect this information. We may share your personal information with our business partners, contractors, service providers (such as our affiliates*, delivery services, hosting vendors, advertising service providers, marketing service companies, etc.) and other third parties we use to support our business (such as data analytics and search engine providers that assist us with Site improvement and optimization) and who are contractually obligated to keep personal information confidential, use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them, and to process the personal information with the same standards set out in this Privacy Policy.

Our business partners and service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other unrelated purposes. Our service providers may be located across Canada, in the U.S., or other foreign jurisdictions.

With Other Third Parties

Some content or applications on the Site are served by third parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our Site. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with behavioural advertising or other targeted content. We also share your personal information with advertisers and advertising networks that require the information to select and serve relevant advertisements to you and others.

For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site - for more information, you can read more about how Google uses your personal information here: To prevent the storage and processing of this data (including your IP address) by Google, you can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: can also obtain additional information on Google Analytics’ data privacy and security at the following links:

In Connection with a Commercial Transaction (when necessary)

OneVest does not generally conduct commercial transactions requiring the disclosure of personal information on an ongoing basis.

If and when this occurs, we may share your personal information, in accordance with applicable law, to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, change in corporate control, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our customers and users is among the assets transferred. The disclosure of personal information for this purpose will be primarily governed by this Privacy Policy and if personal information is being provided by a relinquishing organization, their privacy policy.

Also, depending on the purpose of the commercial transaction and the type of data being provided, additional consideration will be taken to ensure that all applicable regulatory requirements will be included in our PIA.

With Other Parties When Required or Permitted by Law, or As Necessary to Protect Our Guests and Services

We may also share your Personal Information:

  • To comply with any formal and valid court order, law, or legal process, including responding to any public, government or regulatory request, in accordance with applicable law.
  • To enforce or apply our terms and conditions of use and other agreements.
  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect and enforce the legal rights, property, privacy, or safety of OneVest, our customers, affiliates, business partners, employees, agents, guests or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Otherwise With Your Consent or at Your Direction

In addition to the sharing practices described in this Privacy Policy, we may share information about you with third parties whenever you consent to or direct such sharing of personal information. Without limiting the generality of any other terms of this Privacy Policy, we will obtain your consent to collect, use, or disclose personal information except where we are authorized or required by law to do so without consent. Your consent can be expressed, implied or given through an authorized representative such as a lawyer, agent, broker or other individual mandated by law.

Consent may be provided orally, in writing, electronically, through inaction (such as when you fail to notify us that you do not wish your personal information to be collected, used or disclosed for various purposes after you have received notice of those purposes) or otherwise.

If you provide personal information to us about another individual (e.g. spouse, partner, beneficiary, etc.), you represent and warrant to us that you have the consent of that person to provide their personal information to us. We will only use their personal information for the purpose of contacting them as you have requested, and we will thereafter destroy their personal information as applicable, unless they give their consent for us to retain it.

3. Digital Advertising

Types of digital technologies we may use

We and other companies that provide us with advertising and other services may use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies (“digital technologies”) to facilitate administration and navigation of our App and Site, to better understand and improve our products and/or services, to determine and improve the advertising shown to you on our App and Site or elsewhere, and to provide you with a customized online experience, including by providing you with personalized content and ads that are of more interest to you.


As already mentioned above, we may use a third party such as Google Analytics to help us gather and analyze information about the areas visited on our Site (such as the pages most read, time spent, search terms and other engagement data) to evaluate and improve the user experience and our Site. These third parties may use cookies and other tracking technologies.


We, along with third parties, also may use technologies called “beacons” (or “pixels”) that communicate information from your device to a server. Beacons can be embedded in online content, videos, and emails, and can allow a server to read certain types of information from your device, know when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message, determine the time and date on which you viewed the beacon, and the IP address of your device. We and third parties use beacons for a variety of purposes, including to analyze the use of our Site and (in conjunction with cookies) to provide content and ads that are more relevant to you on and off our Site.


“Cookies” are small files that are placed on your computer or other device when you visit a website. Cookies may be used to store a unique identification number tied to your computer or device so that you can be recognized as the same user across one or more browsing sessions, and across one or more sites. Cookies serve many useful purposes such as:

  • remembering your sign-in credentials, so you do not have to enter those credentials each time you visit our Site;
  • helping us and third parties understand which parts of our Site are the most popular because they help us see which pages and features visitors access and how much time they spend on the pages (i.e. By studying this kind of information, we are better able to adapt our Site and provide you with a better client experience; and
  • helping us and third parties understand which ads you have seen so that you don’t receive the same ad each time you visit our Site.

For more information on our Cookie Policy, please refer to Cookie Policy (

Interest-Based Advertisements

Interest-based advertising involves the tailoring of ads you see based on your personal information, including your activity in our App or on our Site. We may use third parties to serve ads on our App, Site, and on other websites and digital platforms. These third parties may use digital technologies to collect and use information about your visits to our App or Site and other websites (including usage information, such as web pages or other content you interact with and your response to ads) to measure the effectiveness of our and our third party advertiser marketing campaigns, and to deliver ads that are more relevant to you and others, both on and off our App and Site. We may also use services provided by third parties (such as social media platforms) to serve targeted ads to you and others on such platforms. For example, we may provide a hashed version of your email address, device ID or other information to the platform provider to facilitate the delivery of tailored advertising. To learn more or to opt-out of having your information used for interest-based behavioural advertising purposes, please see Section 4 below, “Privacy and Access Choices Available To You”.

Local Storage & Other Tracking Technologies

We, along with third parties, may use other kinds of technologies in connection with our App and Site. These technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences. However, these technologies may make use of different parts of your device from standard cookies, and so you might not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings.

4. Privacy and Access Choices Available to You

Choices With Respect To Interest-Based Advertising

You can manage your preferences regarding interest-based advertising (including opting out) by visiting the Preferences section of your account in the App. Please note that even if you opt out of interest-based advertising, tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be interest-based ads.

You can opt-out of several third party ad servers' and networks' cookies simultaneously by using the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada Opt-Out Tool or the opt-out tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative. You can also access these websites to learn more about online behavioural advertising and how to stop websites from placing cookies on your device. Opting out of a network does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the network from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns. We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they are used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

Choices With Respect To Digital Technologies

You may block digital technologies in your browser or device settings, as and if permitted by such device, but in some circumstances, disabling these features may interfere with your ability to access our products and/or services.

Privacy Safeguards

  • Employees are not permitted to share their passwords or store passwords in a place that is accessible to others;
  • Employees must lock their computers when they leave their workstation unattended for any extended period of time (i.e. off-site meeting, lunch, etc.);

  • Working in Public Places  - OneVest employees avoid discussing nonpublic personal information in public places where they may be overheard, such as in restaurants, cafes and elevators. Employees are aware that they must be cautious when using laptops or reviewing documents that contain nonpublic personal information in public places to prevent unauthorized people from viewing the information.

Transmission of Information via the Internet

We endeavour to incorporate commercially reasonable physical, organizational, and electronic safeguards to help protect and secure your personal information, including physical, organizational, and technological safeguards. However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Complaints Handling Procedures for Privacy Issues

  • In most cases, a privacy-related complaint (“complaint”) is resolved simply by either sending it to us in writing or telling us about it.
  • OneVest will send an acknowledgement letter to you within 5 business days of a complaint being made, and once the complaint has been investigated, OneVest will send a formal written notification of the outcome of the complaint. However, if a client raises an issue verbally, it may not be readily apparent that the client is complaining. OneVest may ask the client to clarify a verbal complaint and, if applicable, put the complaint in writing.
  • Where feasible, OneVest will attempt to resolve your complaint within 90 days.
  • If the problem is not resolved to your satisfaction, you can contact OneVest’s Compliance Officer at, or in writing to the following address: Attention: OneVest, PO Box 1145, STN Central, Calgary, AB, T2P 2K9.
  • Should you not be satisfied with the outcome of our review, you may file a complaint with the Privacy Commissioner of Canada through their website at or by writing to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, 30 Victoria Street, Gatineau, Quebec, K1A 1H3.

Compliance with Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”)

Compliance with CASL, which affects commercial electronic messages (“CEMs”), is important to OneVest. We will only send you CEMs if we have obtained your express opt-in consent to receive CEMs from OneVest. The CEMs that you will receive will only relate to the specific purposes for which you have granted. You may withdraw your consent and opt-out or unsubscribe from receiving CEMs at any time by following the “unsubscribe” instructions that are contained in our CEMs or that are available through our Site. All requests to unsubscribe or opt-out of receiving CEMs will be processed promptly. From time to time, we may update our Site and request that you download software, plug-ins, etc. in order to continue using our products and/or services. We will not install any software to your device without your consent.

Compliance with General Data Protection Regulation “GDPR”

GDPR is another privacy regulation set forth by the European Union (“EU”). This set of rules are created for data protection and privacy for all individuals and organizations within the EU. GDPR protects the data of any individual, regardless of their nationality, and any organization (regardless of where their headquarters are located) who has their data collected while they are within the borders of an EU country. Conversely, GDPR does not apply to the data of EU citizens if the data is collected outside of the EU’s borders.The EU member states are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the UK and any individual or organization who/which transmits or shares data within these countries must comply with the GDPR. OneVest has reviewed GDPR requirements against applicable Canadian regulations and have seen an overlap between these various legislation. With this in mind, we have taken the most prudent approach by complying with the most stringent requirements that were set forth by the different privacy laws and standards applicable to us.
