Privacy Policy

Last updated: December 20th, 2022 

At PaySpyre Financial Inc. (“PaySpyre”), we are committed to providing our clients with exceptional service. As providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some Personal Information about our clients, protecting their Personal Information is one of our highest priorities. Accordingly, PaySpyre has established this Personal Information Protection Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) in compliance with British Columbia’s Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA), which outlines the principles and practices we will follow in protecting clients’ Personal Information. Our privacy commitment includes ensuring the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of our clients’ Personal Information and allowing our clients to request access to, and correction of, their Personal Information. 

This Privacy Policy applies to PaySpyre, and to any service providers collecting, using or disclosing Personal Information on behalf of PaySpyre. We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy in our sole discretion at any time by posting a revised version on the Platform. If you continue to use the Platform after the effective date of each amendment, you will be conclusively deemed to have accepted such amended version of this Privacy Policy.
