Privacy policy

 

The assurance of confidentiality for the information you submit to the Société de services dentaires (ACDQ) Inc. (SSD) is very important to it.

This Privacy Policy is intended to inform you of how your personal information is used, protected, stored and disclosed by SSD.

Responsibility

SSD is responsible for all personal information in its possession or under its control.

For the purposes of this Policy, personal information is information concerning a person who allows the person to be identified. This includes but is not limited to an individual’s name, home address, e-mail address, telephone number and date of birth.

However, SSD is not responsible for the content or hyperlinks on third-party websites and does not have any control over them.

Cookies

Certain pages of SSD’s website require cookies to be sent. A cookie is a file installed on the hard drive of your computer which contains information allowing a better communication between SSD’s server and your browser.

If you post a comment on SSD’s website, you will be asked to save your name, e-mail address and website in cookies so that you will not have to enter this same information when you post another comment later. These cookies expire one year after your information is saved.

When editing or posting a publication, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal information and expires after one day.

Storage of personal information

If you post a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely so that subsequent comments will be recognized and approved automatically instead of being left in the moderation queue.

The personal information of users who register on SSD’s website (when possible) will be stored in their profile. Those users may view, edit or delete their personal information, with the exception of their user name, at any time. Managers of SSD’s website may also view and edit this information.

Use of personal information

SSD may use your personal information to contact you, transmit documents or other information to you, in conjunction, among other things, with a marketing or promotional activity, or to answer your questions and comments.

SSD may also use your personal information to collect statistics or improve the content of its website.

SSD does not automatically collect personal information, but rather combines automatically collected non-personal information, particularly through cookies, with the personal information that you disclose to its website.

Sharing of information

SSD will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties. However, it may disclose this information if required by law or if it believes, in good faith, that disclosing such information is necessary to comply with its legal obligations.

Data Rights

If you have left comments on SSD’s website, you may request to receive a file containing all the personal information that SSD possesses on you, including information that you have provided. You may also request that your personal information be deleted, with the exception of data stored for administrative, legal or security purposes.
