From time to time, Brasswater may disclose your personal information if such disclosure is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, or as otherwise permitted by law, for instance if Brasswater is compelled to disclose personal information in response to a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, valid summons, search warrant, government investigation, other legally valid request or investigation or if reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others or ourselves and with the insurers who may be involved in an incident at a property. We may also disclose information to our accountants, auditors, agents and lawyers in connection with the enforcement or protection of our legal rights. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful or to law enforcement and emergency services providers, in an emergency or where required or permitted by law.

  • where it is clearly in the interest of the individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely way, such as in emergencies, where the life, health or safety of the individual is threatened or where legal, medical or security reasons make it impossible or unrealistic to obtain consent;
  • when information is being collected, used or shared for the detection, prevention of or remediation of the breach of an agreement, fraud or other illegal activity and the collection of consent might defeat the purpose of collecting the information; and
  • to comply with a subpoena, warrant or other court order, requests received from law enforcement authorities or as may be otherwise required or authorized by law or any competent regulatory authority.

If you wish to limit the use or disclosure of specific personal information provided to Brasswater, you must submit to the Privacy Officer a written letter detailing such request.
