Budget Rent A Car Privacy Statement

We at Budget Rent A Car of BC Ltd. ("Budget";) recognize the importance of protecting your personally identifiable information ("PII";) that you provide to us.


As of January 1, 2004, the Canadian federal government's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Document Act (PIPEDA), a new privacy law, will apply to Budget's Canadian operations. In addition, the province of British Columbia has enacted a private sector privacy law. Both acts regulate the collection, use and handling of PII (e.g. personal information about an individual) regardless of how the information exists. This policy explains how Budget protects your privacy and summarizes how and why we collect, use and disclose PII that you may provide to us.


This policy is applicable to PII that you provide to Budget, in Canada, and which is held in the Budget System's central database located in Canada and the United States. (see "About the Budget System"; below). This privacy policy does not apply to PII you provide directly to related companies of Budget located outside of Canada, or to PII you provide directly to other Budget licensees. If you provide your PII to another Budget licensee location, the licensee's privacy policy will apply. Some of the countries in which the Budget System operates in have privacy or data protection laws similar to the law in Canada; other countries in which the Budget System operates in do not. PII does not include the name, title or business address or office telephone number of an employee of an organization, or the name, address, telephone number, or similar information of a person that is publicly available (e.g., in a public telephone directory).


In this policy we also explain how you can contact us if you have a question about, or want to make change to or delete, any PII that Budget may be holding about you. We strongly recommend that you take the time to read this privacy policy and retain it for future reference
