Electronic Personal Information collected during the visit of the Site
While a person can visit the Site without disclosing his/her identity and other personal information to Gaz Métro, information is automatically exchanged by the visitor with the Gaz Métro server when the Site is accessed. Such information exchanges do not allow Gaz Métro to identify the visitor, i.e. name or email address. However, such exchanges do allow Gaz Métro to obtain the name of the Internet domain the visitor used to access the Site, the IP address of the visitor, the type of navigator and operating system used by the visitor to access the Site, the date and time the visitor accessed the Site, the pages visited by the visitor and, if the visitor accesses the Site from another site, the address of such site (referencing site).
“Cookies” allow the operating system of Gaz Métro's Site to automatically obtain such information about the visitor. “Cookies” are bits of information stored by the Internet navigator of the visitor on the hard disk of the visitor's computer and that allow Gaz Métro to recognize the visitor when he/she accesses its Site. When the visitor navigates on the Internet, a cookie is used for the aforementioned purposes.
If visitors do not want Gaz Métro to collect information about their visit, they may, at their sole discretion, configure their navigator to notify them when it receives a cookie or to prevent such cookies from being sent. Such information is used by Gaz Métro to determine the number of visits to the Site as well as the pages viewed, the average length of Site visits and to compile other statistics about Site visits in general. Such information also allows Gaz Métro to check the performance of the Site, for purposes of system administration, to make the Site easier and more convenient to use and to report certain information, on an overall basis, to the representatives for whom the transmission of such information is necessary for discharging their duties.
Gaz Métro only collects other personal information about visitors if visitors, at their sole discretion, provide it voluntarily.
If visitors want information from Gaz Métro or want to be put on a Gaz Métro mailing list, they have to provide their email address so Gaz Métro's server can respond to the request or, depending on the circumstances, send the information requested. This other information is also collected so visitors can subscribe to Gaz Métro mailing lists and Gaz Métro can manage such lists (including modifications of the terms and conditions of a subscription and the removal of names from the mailing list), to facilitate the communication of relevant information to the visitors and to allow Gaz Métro to be more familiar with their profile. Such information is strictly confidential and will not be used for commercial prospecting.
Visitors can have access to the personal information they have provided to Gaz Métro and ask Gaz Métro to update, modify or remove certain information Gaz Métro collected during their visit by sending an email to email@example.com or by replying to the messages sent to them as subscribers to the Gaz Métro mailing list.
When it considers it is appropriate to do so, Gaz Métro uses encryption and/or authentication tools as well as other methods to protect personal information received over the Web and stored on its servers. Visitors acknowledge and understand that it is not beyond the realm of possibility that emails they send to Gaz Métro may have been tampered with before they reach Gaz Métro's servers.
Other Personal Information
Electronic or other forms or personal information collected by Gaz Métro is not disclosed to anyone other than representatives or third-party suppliers of Gaz Métro that require such information to discharge their duties with respect to achieving the objectives referred to in these terms and conditions or carry out their mandate. Visitors agree and acknowledge that Gaz Métro is also authorized to use, disclose or communicate their personal information to the extent provided or required by law, including a court order.
Gaz Métro may store and process your Personal Information on servers or computers that are located outside of Canada. In addition, even if your Personal Information is stored in Canada, employees or third-party suppliers of Gaz Métro may access and process your Personal Information from locations outside of Canada. These locations outside of Canada could have privacy laws or standards that are different from those in effect in Canada. So, your Personal Information could, in some circumstances, be subject to disclosure to law enforcement or government agencies, that would not have access to your Personal Information if it were stored in Canada or not available to be accessed from outside of Canada.
Site Owner does not represent or warrant that the information or materials, including without limitation any downloadable software, accessed from or through this Website will be uninterrupted, or free of any error, defects, viruses or other harmful components, or that any such problems which are discovered will be corrected.
Damages to Others
You agree not to introduce into or through this Website any information or materials that may be harmful to others. Among other things, you agree not to include, knowingly or otherwise, in this Website any error or defect in material or information which may, among other things, be a libel, slander, defamation or obscenity, promote hatred or otherwise give rise to a criminal offence or civil liability on the part of any person or entity.
Reserve of Rights
All rights not expressly granted in these terms are reserved to the Site Owner. Nothing contained in these terms shall be construed as conferring by implication, estoppel or otherwise any licence or right under a copyright, patent, trademark or other intellectual property right of Site Owner or any other person or entity.
