Privacy Policy

Ontario Business Central Inc. (collectively referred to as “we” and “us”) take the privacy and security of information provided by clients sincerely.

We have a strong commitment to those who use our services to handle the provided information with integrity, sincerity and the utmost care and diligence to protect the privacy of the information within our system from the submission of details forward.

We do not request nor require clients to set up an account. You are able to access our website and services without providing any details or may provide details required to complete a specific corporate transaction at your voluntary discretion. The information requested is solely for the purpose of fulfilling the requested transaction through our website. At no time, do we request or solicit any additional information from you that is not within the parameters of the requirements by each province or jurisdiction to complete the service selection. We will ask and gather information to allow us the opportunity to contact you by telephone and email as your order is being requested and the details of your credit card to obtain fees for service. The details requested depending on the request provided through us may include individual names, physical and mailing addresses, business activity, names of directors, officers, date of incorporation, business name/s, corporate or registration numbers, and additional personal information such as social insurance number, phone number, and email addresses.

On occasion, outside of providing specific details to a government body, we may be required to use a third party agent to complete your transaction such as an incorporation or registration in the Province of Alberta where only an agent is permitted to manage a file directly with the Provincial government. In this event, the Provincial government has done its due diligence to ensure the third party agent maintains integrity and security to maintain their agent status. We may provide details of your transaction, personal information and shipping address to suppliers solely for the purpose of completing your transaction.

Our website maintains encryption tools such as Secure Socket Layers (SSL) to protect your information as your details are gathered and submitted. We have the highest level of security available in Canada and maintain PCI Compliance to secure your credit card details as submitted.

Any information provided to us is maintained with the strictest of confidence and is used for the sole purpose of completing your desired corporate and or digital service. We will not share your information with any unrelated third party. We maintain your record for your retrieval at any given time.

Our policy is only to share any information whether present or historic with the person and email address provided with the original transaction with our firm. We will NOT share your information with a third party person or third party email address unless required to do so by court order or subpoena.

Security

As you process your order with us, the details of your transaction are encrypted along with your credit card numbers and CVV. Once the transaction has been completed and sent to our server, the details of your transaction are provided to our office exclusive of your credit card details. Those details remain encrypted within the completed transaction. Any and all printed materials are maintained in a locked setting and are regularly shredded by a third party supplier.

Payment Procedures

Our website lists the fees associated with any submission within the ordering page and we clearly provide the details of the costs including our fees, government and agent fees and taxation within the page. We maintain upfront pricing whereas, before you begin any transaction with us, you can view all fees that will be required to complete your desired transaction. The credit card transactions are available by you or by your written authority with us. We process your credit card details with the Merchant services of Netbanx which is a trademark of Paysafe Group Limited. They may be contacted at [email protected]or 1-888-709-8753. We have used Netbanx since 1992 for all credit card processing.

When you have provided the details of your requested service, and provided your credit card details, you will receive onsite notification if the credit card has been accepted or refused by your financial institution. When the credit card transaction has been approved, you agree to pay the fees associated with your specific request to us.

All singular or recurring fees will be charged to a credit card you authorize.

Cancellation of Order or Subscription

Once your order has been submitted with us, if you choose to cancel the requested service, and we have not begun your transaction, you can cancel and receive a full refund. If our staff has begun to work on your order but has not yet completed the transaction, you may obtain a partial credit including government disbursement fees. If the requested transaction has been completed on your behalf, there is no credit available. We believe in a circumstance where a client has opted out of a transaction with our firm, to work with the client to resolution.
