    Personal information

    I consent to the collection by the Caisse from any employer, Financial Institution or personal information agent of the information it may deem necessary, including employment references and my credit report, in order to (a) manage the operational aspects of my folios for the duration of our business relationship, such as authorized transit and freezing of funds at the ATM, and to (b) reassess any financial commitment I have made or will make to the Caisse. I agree to let such information be communicated to the Caisse by the person thus contacted, even if it is in a closed or inactive file. I also agree that the Caisse may disclose to any personal information agent information about any financial commitment that I have made or will make to the Caisse so that agent may update my file. I agree that this authorization will remain in effect, even if I am no longer a Caisse member, until I have fully met all my financial commitments to the Caisse. I understand that I can request to have my name removed from the Caisse's lists by requesting so in writing.
