Principle 2 – Identifying Purposes for Collection of Personal Information

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.

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.

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.

Dealt with Ken on two...
David Branicky
Dealt with Ken on two seperate occasions and both times he was honest and very helpful.Once I brought my 2003 Dodge Caravan in where I could not drive forward after a hard stop but after a few seconds it would start driving again. So I thought my transmission was starting to give up and would eventually need to be replaced but it turned out to be as simple as my transmission fluid level was low. So once he topped it up I never had that issue again and drove the van another 80k before selling it.

Michael Cormier
I called this shop about 3 years ago when my 2010 Pontiac G5 needed a new clutch , I spoke with Jason and his price quote was $500.less than any of the other transmission repair shops I had called for quotes . The turnaround was quick and the repair was done for the quoted price and within the time they said it would take , I was extremely pleased ! When my check engine light came on last night and the cars engine power was reduced I called the shop this morning (Friday of a long weekend) and spoke with Jen , they were able to do a diagnostic test and reset , I got my car back within 3 hours when I asked how much they said no charge ! these guys and gals are the best and very trustworthy ! 10 out of 10 stars , Mike in Toronto

Michael Marcus
Gus is truly one of a kind. Unfortunately over the last year I have gotten to know him better than I hoped for! My truck first needed a new transmission, then we had a catalytic convertor stolen, and just now had a belt that needed replacement. He has helped us out of a bind and every time I have dealt with him, he has been honest, up front and given us fair pricing with great workmanship. I highly recommend Gus and the boys for their speedy resolutions and helpful advice. My business couldn't survive without him. Well done and hope to see you soon or not! Thanks, Michael Adjustable Beds Plus

Carmine Perrelli
The guys at the Richmond Hill location have over 100 years of combined experience. They work on everything from my 2021 Navigator to my 71 cutlas convertible. You don't let just anyone work on your classic. Gary and the fellas know what their doing and they do it with honesty and kindness and fair pricing. Sadly, when the property is converted to highrise, it may be the end of Mr. Transmission in Richmond Hill and that will be a very sad day for me and all my vehicles. Thank you for over 50 years of service to the community, Gary.Carmine Perrelli

LISA WAPPLE
I was referred to Mr Transmission (on 1A St SE Calgary) from my tire shop; Mr Transmission was able to get to me very promptly. My truck is only 5 years old, it was very stressful and frustrating. Mr Transmission also gave me a very kind discount. The staff was phenomenal and I was treated like family you love. I will definitely be referring anyone I know that has transmission needs to go there.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
