PRIVACY POLICY 

Registered Users 
ISC is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information required to achieve its mission of providing quality services for our customers and a healthy and rewarding workplace for our employees. We respect the privacy of personal information provided to us and we have policies, processes and controls in place to help protect and limit access to the personal information of our customers and employees on a “need to know” basis. 

ISC’s personal information privacy policies are based on compliance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, all applicable laws and the ten privacy principles established by the Canadian Standards Association's Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information.

When you visit the ISC website, the server may automatically collect and retain a limited amount of data essential to the efficient operation and security of that site. This information, however, cannot be correlated back to a specific individual. An automated process may analyze this data and a statistical report may be created to help us identify usage trends and improve our service.

The ISC website may distribute a small file to your computer, called a "cookie". Cookies may be used in two contexts: 1) the login cookie is optional and is used only to pre-populate the login form for the user as a convenience (i.e. "Remember User Name, Client Number And Account Number”) - it has no expiration date; 2) the session cookie has a purely technical purpose - it is created only after you have signed in to the Web Site and is used to track information between you and the application - no personal information is collected, and the cookie is destroyed as soon as you close your browser.

When you voluntarily send us electronic mail or complete an electronic form that includes identifying information about yourself, we will keep a record of this information in order to respond to your inquiry and or communicate with you generally. The personal information you provide to us is kept in strict confidence and will only be used by authorized personnel to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally collected or for a use consistent with that purpose. We do not disclose your information to other public bodies or individuals except as authorized by law or with your consent.

Public Registries

ISC manages, operates, and provides access to the Saskatchewan public registries: the Land Registry, the Land Surveys Directory, the Corporate Registry, the Personal Property Registry, and the Judgment Registry. These registries contain information about individuals and corporate bodies that is a matter of public record, and therefore not subject to The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act of Saskatchewan. By submitting your registration information, you agree and acknowledge that all or portions of the registration information become part of the public record, subject to the terms and conditions of ISC stated herein. In using the search functions contained in the ISC website, you are permitted to copy electronically and print hard copies of pages for your own lawful use, in accordance with the “Trademarks and Copyright” provisions contained herein. 

Land Registry Search API

ISC was approved by the Government of Saskatchewan, Registrar of Titles and Registrar of Personal Property Security to be able to offer certain qualified customers the ability to perform Land Registry and Judgment Registry searches through ISC`s Land Search API technology. If you would like more information about accessing this technology, please contact ISC by phone: 1-866-275-4721 or by email: ask@isc.ca.

Applications to access the Land Search API may be approved by the Registrar of Titles and Registrar of Personal Property Security.

 Customers seeking access to the Land Search API must be:
  1. Customers conducting singular Land and/or Judgment Registry searches only for the purpose of preparing documentation to submit a registration request to the Land Registry for those titles. 
  2. A government entity that is fulfilling a government mandate or purpose that is not a commercial purpose.

ISC’s Land Search API uses technology-based restrictions to protect against misuse including security protections, single-records restrictions, and monitoring internet-protocol addresses. Pricing for the Land Search API includes a connection fee and the per-search fee will not be less than the maximum price ISC charges for regular searches.

The ISC website as well as any information, material, documents or services ordered via the ISC online service have been prepared for information purposes only and do not constitute legal advice. Transmission and/or receipt of any information, material, documents or services contained on the ISC website or ordered from the ISC online service does not constitute a solicitor-client relationship. Information in or from the ISC website or the ISC online service should not be acted upon without obtaining legal advice. 

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION 

By using the ISC website or the ISC online service, the registered client agrees and submits to the jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada and to the application of the laws of the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada, without respect to choice of law principles.

The provisions of these Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and ISC and take the place of all previous communications, representations and agreements, whether oral, written or electronic, between the parties with respect to the subject matter herein.
