Information that KISCL retains and collects is used for the purpose of administering financial services and to provide the customer with additional products or services. Employee access to customer information is limited to authorized KISCL employees whom know the sensitivity of customer information.

Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, first and last name, physical address, postal code, email address, business and home phone numbers, social security number, date of birth, income and other financial information that may identify you as a specific individual.

We safeguard the information you provide to us. Below are ways in which we use and protect information received on our Website:

Applications: When you apply online for products and services, you provide personal information that is necessary for us to process your application. The transmission of this information from you to us or from us to you is secured via SSL Technology (Secure Socket Layer). This technology encrypts (or scrambles) your personal information during transmission so it's virtually impossible for anyone other than KISCL to read it. You know you are in a secured area when your Internet Browser shows a closed padlock symbol (Internet Explorer) or an unbroken key on the lower left corner and a solid blue line at the top (Netscape browser).

Email: We retain the content of your email, your email address, and our response so that we can efficiently reply to your concerns, process your loan application and in order to comply with federal and provincial record retention requirements. If we think a particular KISCL product or service, or a product or service offered by one of our affiliates, might appeal to you, we may occasionally contact you at your email address to inform you of its availability. If you prefer not to receive promotional emails, please contact us either by email or at the toll free telephone number listed under the Contact Us link.
