2. Personal Information

Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. Personal information does not include aggregated information that does not allow an individual to be identified. An individual’s business contact information, such as his or her name, title, business address, business telephone and business facsimile numbers, are not considered to be personal information.

3. Privacy Principles

The following are the ten privacy principles forming this Privacy Policy.

Principle 1 – Accountability

Mister Transmission is responsible for personal information under its control and shall designate one or more persons who are accountable for Mister Transmission’s compliance with the following principles. Mister Transmission has established a Chief Privacy Officer to oversee compliance with this Privacy Policy. Contact information for the Mister Transmission Chief Privacy Officer is provided below.

Principle 2 – Identifying Purposes for Collection of Personal Information

Mister Transmission shall identify the purposes for which personal information is collected at or before the time the personal information is collected. Some of the identified purposes for which Mister Transmission collects, uses or discloses of personal information are described in section 4 below.

Principle 3 – Obtaining Consent for Collection, Use or Disclosure of Personal Information

The knowledge and consent of an individual are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of his or her personal information, except where inappropriate or as permitted by law. In obtaining consent, Mister Transmission shall use reasonable efforts to ensure that an individual is advised of the identified purposes for which personal information will be used or disclosed. In determining the appropriate form of consent, Mister Transmission shall take into account the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of a reasonable person. Consent shall not be obtained through deception. An individual may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. Mister Transmission will advise the individual of the implications of such withdrawal.

Principle 4 – Limiting Collection of Personal Information

Mister Transmission shall limit the collection of personal information, both the amount and the type of information, to that which is necessary for the purposes identified by Mister Transmission. Personal information shall be collected by fair and lawful means, and not by misleading or deceiving individuals about the purpose or which information is being collected.

Principle 5 – Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention of Personal Information

Mister Transmission shall not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than the identified purposes for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual or as required or permitted by law. Mister Transmission shall retain personal information only as long as necessary to fulfill the identified purposes.

Principle 6 – Accuracy of Personal Information

Personal information shall be as accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. Mister Transmission shall update personal information about individuals as and when necessary to fulfill the identified purposes or upon notification by the subject individual. Mister Transmission will not routinely update personal information, unless such process is necessary to fulfill the identified purposes.

Principle 7 – Security Safeguards

Mister Transmission shall protect personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Mister Transmission shall use reasonable efforts and security measures to protect personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, modification, disposal or destruction. Mister Transmission shall protect personal information disclosed to third parties by contractual agreements stipulating the confidentiality of the information and the limited purposes for which it is to be used.

Principle 8 – Openness Concerning Policies and Practices

Mister Transmission shall make readily available to individuals specific information about its policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

Upon written request from an individual pursuant to Principle 8, Mister Transmission shall inform the individual of the existence, use, and disclosure of his or her personal information and, subject to certain exceptions, shall give the individual access to that information. If access is denied, Mister Transmission shall notify the requesting individual in writing, give reasons for the denial, and inform the individual of the recourses open to him or her. If access is granted, Mister Transmission shall afford the requesting individual a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information collected by Mister Transmission. Personal information will be provided in an understandable form within a reasonable time, generally within 30 days, and at minimal cost to the individual. Mister Transmission may extend such 30 day period by up to an additional 30 days if meeting the time limit would unreasonably interfere with the activities of Mister Transmission or the time required to undertake any consultations necessary to respond to the request would make the time limit impracticable to meet. An individual shall be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate.

An individual shall be able to address a challenge concerning compliance with this Privacy Policy to the Mister Transmission Chief Privacy Officer.

Sara Beattie
The team is amazing. Chris went above and beyond to help me with an issue I was experiencing after servicing (the issue had nothing to do with the quality of their work, they did an amazing job). He ensured I was safe and comfortable driving home before he headed out. 10/10. I would recommend this team to anyone! Very honest, professional, polite and helpful.

James Karr
These guys are the real deal! One of our vehicles had transmission repairs done a couple of years ago. Recently, it failed again and, as luck would have it, we were just two weeks outside the warranty expiry date while well under the kilometer limit. Eric stood tall and repaired the failure at NO COST!! I would instantly, highly recommend this company!! This kind of integrity is hard to find!

Never a good thing when...
Attila Szamoskozi
Never a good thing when you find out that your automatic transmission needs to get rebuilt and it's always an expensive proposition. However, after doing some price comparisons and reading Google reviews I ended up choosing this location to do the work on my 2005 Honda Accord V6. Really glad I did. The work was actually completed early and was the final price that I was quoted once they actually had a look at the car. A fair price and a bit lower than the other quotes that I got by some other automotive shops.Frank was a pleasure to deal with and I really appreciate that he took the time to explain the work that was being done in detail when I asked him to give me the full explanation. The 3 year warranty was also a big plus as every other place I spoke to was only offering a 1 year warranty on the work performed.The car now shifts like it was new and to be honest I had forgotten over the years how smoothly it shifted when it was brand new. I have now been reminded what that was like. :) I would definitely not hesitate to recommend this location for transmission work but as I understand it, they do all other repairs on cars as well. I guess I'll be seeing more of you Frank!

Michael George
These guys are actually how they seem. Transparent, professional, efficient and trustworthy. Transmission problems arose on my 2008 Mazda 3 for the first time ever since I bought it and with work the next day I was panicking. First thing I did was call my mechanic who referred me here and after doing a little research I knew this was the place to go. Gus Katsavos was the technician I encountered and helped me all the way through out from start to finish. He provided exceptional customer service, transparency, urge to get the job done in a timely manner, and even taught me a few things to avoid further issues. My car was fixed the same day, ready to get me to work the following day and was running smoother than ever with no further issues. If there’s anywhere you want to go when you have transmission problems, it’s here. Being hard to find trustworthy places who are looking out for your best interest and fix the issue, nothing more, it was refreshing to come across this place. Thank you to Gus Katsavos, I’ll be back anytime I have transmission problems and I hope you guys will as well. Can’t go wrong.
