The personal information we collect will be retained only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, as well as to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

If you’d like to get more information on the duration during we conserve your personal information, please contact us using the coordinates provided in the section section “We join”.


The personal information are conserved on the servers services to which we subscribe and which are necessary to our operations. We take all necessary measures to guarantee the protection of these data and their access only by authorized people.


We adhere to widely accepted industry standards to protect the information you transmit to us, both during transmission and upon receipt. We have implemented appropriate physical, technical and administrative safeguards to prevent accidental destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse or other unlawful processing of the personal information we hold. We have restricted access to your personal information to those staff members who need it to perform their duties or who have a legitimate reason for accessing it.

However, it is important to note that no method of data transmission over the Internet, nor any electronic storage system, can guarantee 100% security. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Similarly, we cannot guarantee that such information will never be accessed, obtained, disclosed, altered or destroyed by a breach of our physical, technical or administrative safeguards. If you have reasonable grounds to believe that your personal information has been compromised, please contact us using the contact information provided in the “How to contact us” section. In the event of a privacy incident affecting your personal information, we will inform you as soon as possible after becoming aware of the incident. We will take reasonable steps to reduce the risk of harm and to prevent similar incidents in the future.



In certain situations and in accordance with applicable data protection laws, you have the following rights:

Right of access: You have the right to know whether we are processing your personal information and, if so, to request access to this information. Subject to legal requirements and, where applicable, for a fee, you may receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you, together with certain other details.

Right of rectification: We are required to take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we hold is accurate, complete, not misleading and up to date. You have the right to request rectification of any incomplete or inaccurate personal information we hold.

Right to de-index: You have the right to request that your personal information no longer be disseminated or that any hypertext link containing your name and giving access to information concerning you be de-indexed, if such dissemination causes you harm or is contrary to the law or a court order. This is sometimes referred to as the right to erasure or the right to be forgotten.

Right to anonymization: In some cases, rather than destroying your personal information, we may anonymize it in order to use it for serious and legitimate purposes. For example, this may be done to retain information required for possible tax inspection purposes.

Right to information on automated decisions: You have the right to be informed if a decision concerning you is made solely on the basis of automated processing.

Right to information on the use of identification, location or profiling technology: You have the right to be informed when we use identification, location or profiling technologies, as well as the means available to activate or deactivate these functions.

In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority in your country, province or state of habitual residence (for example, the Commission d’accès à l’information in Quebec), in our country of establishment, or in the country where an alleged violation of data protection laws has occurred.
