its offices and information storage facilities so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure,
or modification of Personal Information.

indicated  above.   B-ZEE REALTY INC. reserves the right not to change any Personal Information but will append
any alternative text the individual concerned believes appropriate.  Where not required to be retained by the Firm,
an individual may also request that B-ZEE REALTY INC.delete an individual’s Personal Information from B-ZEE
REALTY INC.’s system and records.  However, due to constraints of computer technology and the fact that B-ZEE
REALTY INC. backs up its systems, Personal Information may continue to reside in B-ZEE REALTY INC.  systems
after deletion.  Individuals, therefore, should not expect that their Personal Information would be completely
removed from B-ZEE REALTY INC. systems in response to an accepted request for deletion.

the information; or
g) Does not exist, is not held, or cannot be found by B-ZEE REALTY INC..

Where information will not or cannot be disclosed, the individual making the request will be provided with the
reasons for non-disclosure. Where information will be disclosed, B-ZEE REALTY INC. will endeavor to provide
the  information in question within a reasonable time and no later than 30 days following the request.  B-ZEE
REALTY INC. will not respond to repetitious or vexatious requests for access. In determining whether a request is
repetitious or vexatious, it will consider such factors as the frequency with which information is amended, the
purpose for which the information is used, and the nature of the information. To guard against fraudulent
requests for access, B-ZEE REALTY INC.will require sufficient information to allow it to confirm the identity of the
person making the request before granting access or making corrections.
