1. Privacy Policy Objectives:

Respect for privacy and the protection of personal information are essential to us, which is why, through this Policy, we intend to protect them in accordance with the laws in force.

In order to ensure this protection, Mécanique Industrielle A.L. Tech inc undertakes to only collect, process and share information allowing the identification of an individual when the latter has consented, unless this is permitted or required by law. , in which case your consent will not be necessary.

The purpose of the Policy is to inform users of the reasons and how Mécanique Industrielle A.L. Tech inc, or any person acting on its behalf, will collect and use their personal information. It is intended to be in clear language in order to ensure informed consent from users.

For the purposes of this Policy, “personal information” means any information about an identifiable or identifiable individual. Where possible, we will anonymize, pseudonymize and/or aggregate these so that they no longer identify an individual.

2. Coming into force

This Policy applies from December 15, 2024.

This Policy replaces the previous Privacy Policy

3. Procedures for obtaining consent

We are committed to obtaining consent before collecting an individual's personal information. Consent may be express or implied and may be provided directly by the individual or their authorized representative.

We prioritize obtaining explicit consent, whether verbally, electronically or in writing. However, implied consent can be reasonably inferred from a person's action or inaction. For example, providing a name and address to receive a publication or a name and telephone number to obtain a response to a question is considered implied consent to the collection of information containing personal information. To determine the appropriate type of consent, we consider the sensitivity of the personal information in question, the purposes for which it is collected and the reasonable expectations of an individual in a similar situation.

If we want to use personal information for a new purpose, we will describe the intended use and ask for consent again.

It is not always possible, particularly in the context of a request from the State, to obtain the consent of the person to collect, use or communicate their personal information. We undertake to never communicate this type of information, other than in accordance with this Policy, unless the law requires or permits us to do so.
