We limit the information we provide to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and our contracts with these service providers require them to maintain the confidentiality of such information. 
  • Government authorities and law enforcement agencies where required by applicable law. More specifically, we may disclose personal and other information if we are required to do so by tax or other laws, or if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable laws, in response to a court order or subpoena or government search warrant, or otherwise to cooperate with such government authorities and law enforcement agencies.

When you visit our website, these third parties may use cookies, web beacons or similar technologies on your hard disk to collect or receive information about your browsing on the website and elsewhere on the Internet. These technologies enable us to deliver relevant advertising targeted to your interests. You can consult cookies and delete them if you wish. You therefore have full control. Please refer to your browser settings to make the appropriate changes.

If you would like third-party sites to store cookies on your hard drive-in order to offer you targeted advertising, you can activate this option.

We will retain personal information only as long as necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy and to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

No personal information is transferred outside of Quebec. The Cité de la Santé Foundation uses the services of Prodon software (by the company Logilys) as a database. The information is stored on the secure servers of the CISSS de Laval.


We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both at the time of transmission and once we have received it. We maintain appropriate physical, technical or administrative safeguards to protect personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse or other unlawful forms of processing of personal information in our possession. We have taken steps to ensure that the only employees who have access to your personal information are those who have a need to know or whose duties reasonably require them to know it.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, nor any means of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We therefore cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or provide to us, and you do so at your own risk. Nor can we guarantee that such information will not be accessed, obtained, disclosed, modified or destroyed as a result of a breach of our physical, technical or administrative safeguards. If you have reason to believe that your personal information has been compromised, please contact us as indicated in the HOW TO CONTACT US section. In the event of a privacy incident involving your personal information, we will notify you as soon as we become aware of the incident.  We will take reasonable steps to minimize the risk of harm and to prevent similar incidents in the future.


Under certain circumstances and in accordance with applicable data protection laws, an individual has the following rights:

  • Access: the right to ask whether we process information and, if so, to request access to personal information. Subject to applicable law and, where applicable, the payment of a monetary sum, the individual may thus receive a copy of the personal information we hold and certain other information concerning him or her. 
  • Accuracy: We are required to take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information in our possession is accurate, complete, non-misleading and up-to-date.
  • Rectification: the right to request rectification of any incomplete or inaccurate personal information we hold.

  • Anonymization: the fact that our organization can, instead of destroying personal information, anonymize it and use it only for serious and legitimate purposes (e.g., keeping information required for tax inspection purposes);
  • The right to be informed when you are the subject of a decision based exclusively on automated processing;
  • The right to be informed when identification, location or profiling technology is used and of the means available to activate these functions;
  • Finally, it is also possible to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority, more specifically in the country, province or state in which you normally reside (in Quebec, the Commission d'accès à l'information), in which we are located or in which an alleged breach of data protection laws has occurred.
