Caledonian Royalty Corporation is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, security and accuracy of your personal information. This Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") describes the personal information that Caledonian Financial collects, how we use it, and to whom that information may be disclosed.

This Privacy Policy applies to Caledonian Royalty Corporation, Caledonian Investment Management Limited and CRC Royalty Corporation (collectively "Caledonian").

This Privacy Policy applies to any personal information Caledonian receives from individuals, unless the personal information is dealt with in Caledonian's Employee Privacy Policy.

What is Personal Information?

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, "personal information" means information about an identifiable individual, such as home address and phone number, names of partners and spouses, social insurance number or hobbies and interests. This does not include the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization, when used for business communications.

What Personal Information Do We Collect?

  • Customer and investor relationship information, such as investor information requests;
  • Business relationship information, such as agreement terms and preferences; and
  • Business operations information. Examples include: information necessary to effect unitholder contact information in response to specific requests.
As a general rule, Caledonian collects personal information directly from you. If third parties hold information Caledonian requires, we will endeavor to ensure the information has been collected with your consent.

Where permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, we may collect information about you without your knowledge or consent.

  • Protecting Caledonian against error, fraud, theft, damage or nuisance relating to Caledonian's assets, operations or reputation;
  • Enabling us to comply with applicable law or regulatory requirements; and
  • Any other reasonable purpose to which you consent.

  • It is required by another party, in the event of a change in ownership of or granting of security interests in all or a part of Caledonian through, for example, some form of merger, purchase, sale, lease, amalgamation or other form of business combination, provided that the parties are bound by appropriate agreements or obligations which require them to use or disclose your personal information in a manner consistent with the use and disclosure provisions of this Privacy Policy, unless you consent otherwise; or

It is important to us that we collect, use or disclose your personal information where we have your consent to do so or as provided in this Privacy Policy. Depending on the sensitivity of the personal information, your consent may be implied, deemed (using an opt-out mechanism) or express. Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing. Implied consent is consent that can reasonably be inferred from your action or inaction. For example, when you register on our site for the purposes of accessing investor information, we will assume your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information for purposes related to that request for information or for other purposes identified by you at the time.

Typically, we will seek your consent at the time that we collect the personal information. In some circumstances, your consent may be obtained after collection but prior to our use or disclosure of your personal information. If we plan to use or disclose your personal information for a purpose not previously identified (either in this Privacy Policy or separately), we will endeavor to advise you of that purpose before such use or disclosure.

We may collect, use or disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required to do so by applicable law or regulatory requirements.

We assume that, unless you advise otherwise, that by receiving a copy of this Privacy Policy or by continuing to deal with us, you have consented to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as explained in this Privacy Policy.

You may change or withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting our Privacy Officer using the contact information set out below. In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may limit our ability to provide products or services to, or acquire products or services from you.

Protecting Personal Information

Caledonian will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard personal information using methods that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Examples of these methods include: password, encryption and other electronic security means; locked or limited access premises and file cabinets; and the security monitoring methods referred to earlier in this policy.

Updating Personal Information

It is important that the personal information Caledonian holds about you is accurate and current. Caledonian asks that you keep us informed of changes to your personal information.

Retention of Your Personal Information

To the extent practical, personal information will be retained only for so long as it is required to be maintained by law or good business practices.
