Consent for Collection, Use, and Disclosure of Personal Information

I can withdraw any consent I give below for the collection, use, and disclosure of my personal information at any time by contacting Kindred Credit Union (“Kindred” herein). I may be asked to provide a request in writing.

If I withdraw my consent, Kindred may no longer be able to provide me or the third party for whom I am acting with a product(s) and/or service(s).

Social Insurance Number (the "SIN") for Administration Purposes Consent

I consent to Kindred and its agents and representatives collecting, using, and disclosing my SIN to administer the Account; to keep my records with Kindred separate from other individuals with the same name; and to identify me, including for credit report purposes.

My consent is not required where Kindred collects, uses, and discloses my SIN for the purposes of, and in keeping with, legislative requirements, including tax reporting requirements. Kindred will inform me if additional consent is required in relation to the provision of future products or services.

Full Personal Credit Report Consent

To enable Kindred to assess the risk of providing provisional credit, such as a reduced deposit hold period, to me or the third party for whom I am acting, I consent to Kindred obtaining my full personal credit report from credit reporting agencies and providing information about my credit history and other personal information to other financial institutions and credit reporting agencies to update my credit information and maintain the integrity of the credit reporting system. I consent to Kindred obtaining my full personal credit reports, from time to time, for the same risk assessment, updating, and maintenance purposes.

I understand Kindred will be permitted to use other credit reporting agency products to verify my identity and for the other purposes set out below in the Personal Information Consent section.
