Collection of personal information

Personal information is generally defined as information or an opinion that can identify a person. The type of personal information that TBC collects from its customers will depend upon what dealings customers may have with TBC.

Use and disclosure of personal information

In general, TBC’s policy is only to use or disclose personal information for the purpose which was either specified or reasonably apparent at the time when the information was collected.

TBC does not sell personal information to companies outside the division of TBC. The only circumstances in which external organisations may be given access to TBC’s customer personal information are when TBC’s franchisees and franchisors are assisting TBC in the operation of its business or to provide a customer service (for example a company which helps maintain TBC’s computer systems or sends out TBC’s mail). TBC requires these organisations to agree to TBC’s Privacy Policy and to strict conditions governing how this information may be used.


TBC may send promotional information to its customers where it is related to the purpose for which the information was collected.
