Privacy Policy

GFA offers an almost unparalleled combination of extensive industry contacts, in-house expertise, forward-thinking innovation and comprehensive personal service. People are the backbone of GFA. Our employees are leaders in their fields. They bring extensive product knowledge, broad industry education and a dedication to thoughtful and innovative solutions.

We have instituted the highest standards possible for staying at the forefront of our industry and serving our customers. As we climb towards the future, we intend to take those standards even higher. By providing expert guidance, GFA aims to become a trusted advisor to their clients. – We work hard to ensure our clients’ requirements are met.


Trust comes with confidence. The more you know about us, the more confident you can feel about dealing with GFA. Similarly, the more we know about you, the better we can serve you.

Because it is important that we keep your trust, we will only ask for information we need, and when we ask you for information, we’ll let you know why we need it.

Subject to legal and contractual requirements, you can refuse to consent to our collection, use or disclosure of information about you, or withdraw your consent to our further collection, use or disclosure of information at any time by giving us reasonable notice in writing.

If you refuse or withdraw your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information about you, we may not be able to provide or continue to provide you with some products, services or information of value to you.


While GFA tries to ensure that the information we hold about you is accurate, complete and up-to-date, it is in your obligation to inform promptly of a change of name, address or any other relevant information.

If you believe that personal factual information in your records may be inaccurate, we make it easy for you to access, verify and update it. If information has been provided to third parties, we will convey the corrected information to them, if necessary.

If we do not agree to change your personal information, you may challenge our decision. We will make a record of this challenge and, if necessary disclose the challenge to third parties who also possess the information.


To review the personal information, which GFA has about you, simply notify our management team. Basic personal information can be verified on the spot, at no charge. If you wish to review more extensive information, you’ll be asked to provide details regarding the nature of the information you wish to check.

The information will be obtained from our files and will normally be provided within 30 days of your request. There may be a charge for retrieving this information, in which case you will be notified in advance and may, if you like, withdraw your request. You may also challenge the reasonableness of the charge.

Sometimes we may not provide you with information about you that is within our control. This can occur if your right of access is constrained pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Laws in place. For example, we will not provide you with personal information in our control if:

It would reveal personal information about another party and your personal information cannot be separated. The information is subject to solicitor/client or litigation privilege. The information is used for the detection and prevention of criminal activity and dealings in the proceeds of crime. If we deny your request for access to your personal information, you will be told why, unless prohibited by law. You may challenge that decision.

Once you have the information, all you have to do is check it for accuracy and let us know if there are any corrections required. We will correct our records or make note of any differences. If information has been provided to third parties, we will convey the corrected information or the note of any differences to them, if necessary.


We at GFA are committed to holding our client’s personal information in strict confidence, and we shall not disclose any such information unless authorized by our clients, required by law to do so, or required to do so in conducting negotiations with underwriters. Our Privacy Code builds on this commitment.
