Disclosure of your personal information
Transferring personal information outside of Canada
In some cases, the personal information we manage may be transferred, processed or stored outside of Canada and, consequently, may be available to the administrative authorities in those countries by virtue of their national legislation. Gatineau Acura strives to protect this personal information through contracts requiring these third parties to respect the confidential nature of the information, to adopt appropriate security procedures and to implement protective measures that are at least equivalent to those employed by our dealership.
Security of personal information
We utilize reasonable safeguards to protect your personal information against unauthorized access. Gatineau Acura has implemented security measures of an administrative, technical and physical nature in order to ensure that your personal information is protected.
Personal information will be stored only for the period that is necessary in order to accomplish the objectives for which the information was gathered and for which consent was obtained, except in such cases as are prescribed or permitted by law. Any personal information that is not necessary for accomplishing the intended objectives, or those that are prescribed or permitted by law, will be destroyed, deleted or anonymized. Our dealership has implemented a method for storing and destroying personal information in such a way as to prevent unauthorized access.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy or the personal information you have entrusted to us, or if you wish to file a complaint regarding the enforcement of this policy, you may contact the person or persons designated by our dealership to oversee compliance with this policy by sending an email to email@example.com.
