Data Usage and Security Measures

In order to best protect the confidentiality and security of personal information, we are committed:

In accordance with the recommendations of the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés, and in line with the practices of our business, we retain personal information for five years after the end of each mandate.

We keep all personal information collected in a secure environment, and have in place reasonable measures to protect the information from unauthorized access, but also against loss, disclosure, or destruction.

Our employees are informed of these safety measures and undertake to comply with them in the performance of their duties.
