Policy on Confidentiality and Conditions of Use

Non-liability

The Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ) makes every possible effort to ensure that the information on its website is accurate, complete, and up to date. However, the CCQ reminds users that the official versions of statutes, regulations, collective agreements, and other official documents take precedence over the website. The CCQ also reminds visitors that there is no excuse for not referring to the official texts of statutes, regulations, and collective agreements.

The purpose of the CCQ’s website is to facilitate application of the statutes, regulations, and collective agreements governing the construction industry. It also provides access to certain services offered to the construction industry’s employers, employees, and retirees. It must at no time or in any way be used for purposes other than these objectives. The CCQ may withdraw access privileges from a user who does not respect the conditions of use.

Hyperlinks to other sites

Hyperinks to other sites are offered for your convenience. You should know that when you click on one of these links, you leave the CCQ website. The CCQ in no way endorses or condones the content or practices of these sites, nor can it be held responsible for them, notably with regard to protection of personal information and privacy.

Confidentiality

If you choose to communicate personal information to us by using one or another of the transmission forms available, we will gather and use this information solely to execute our mandates. Only the employees authorized to use this information within the context of their work may take cognizance of it, and only when it is required in the performance of their duties. We do not keep this information longer than necessary, and we make every effort necessary to ensure its security.

Use of personal information

Further details concerning the specific use to which the personal information transmitted will be put are supplied with the respective transmission form used. Visitors may also consult the inventory of personal information files, made public under the provisions of section 76 of the Act Respecting Access to Documents Held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information (CQLR, chap. A-2.1).

Protection of personal data

The CCQ has implemented strict measures for security and confidentiality of personal information that is routed by its site. All personal information is transmitted using recognized secure encryption techniques.

It is your responsibility to preserve the confidentiality of your personal identification number (PIN). Do not divulge it to anyone, as the privileges linked to it belong to you alone.

Transmission of your contact information to third parties

If you choose to communicate personal information to us using one or another of the transmission forms available, we will not communicate them to any other party without your authorization unless the law requires or authorizes it.

Access to your data

You may consult your confidential data through the online services. For any other request, communicate by mail or fax with the person responsible for application of the Act Respecting Access to Documents Held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information:
