Our Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes how we, through all channels of communication, whether online at our website, or in person at our offices (the “Site”) collect, use and disclose the Personal Information (as defined below) of its visitors (“you”, “your” or “yours”).

We are committed to protecting your right to privacy and recognize the importance of safeguarding the personal information we collect about you.

In addition, information that you have shared with others, such as your reviews or forum postings, may remain publicly visible, and certain copies of your information (e.g., computer postings, residual copies) may remain in our database, albeit anonymized.

Cookies

Strictly necessary cookies

Like many commercial websites, we also automatically collect information electronically, using cookies. Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard Internet registration and visitor behavior information. Most websites, including ours, would not function properly without certain cookies.

These enable us to avoid system interruptions, display information, correct “bugs” and ensure the security of our site (and your account). These types of cookies are often referred to as “strictly necessary cookies”. Among other things, we use them to:  Balance website traffic to guarantee our customers a consistent and reliable service

Limit traffic to key parts of the Site to maintain performance levels;

Facilitate your use of our Site;

To record your acceptance of the Policy, cookie policy and website terms and conditions, without which access to the Site is not granted.

Because they are necessary for the proper functioning of our Site, we do not offer you the possibility of deactivating them. You can remove them using your browser settings.

Please bear in mind that some features of our Site may not be available to you.

Functional cookies

Some cookies provide important services but are not strictly necessary for the operation of our Site. These cookies use information about your interactions with us so that we can suggest products and special offers or enable you to purchase products at a live streaming event. If your purchases are interrupted, they remember where you stopped and may send you a reminder. These reminders can be sent to you by e-mail, on social networks or while you are browsing another website or device.

If you do not agree with the use of these cookies, you can tell us not to use certain cookies by using the deactivation tools we have placed on our Site.

Functional cookies are used to improve the usability of our Site, for example to:

Determine your preferences;

Save your preferred language and geographic region/country

Interest-based marketing and targeting

We may use your personal information to deliver targeted advertising or marketing communications that may be of interest to you (interest-based advertising). Interest-based marketing is a way of delivering advertisements on the websites you visit and making them more relevant to you based on your interests: shared interests are grouped together based on previous web browsing activity, and web users then receive advertising corresponding to their shared interests. In this way, advertising can be made as relevant and useful as possible. Relevant ads can also be served based on the content of the website you’ve just visited. This is known as retargeting (or remarketing).

We may run remarketing campaigns using the Google Ads platform to advertise on the Internet, in particular on the Google Display Network. AdWords remarketing will display ads based on segments of our website that you have visited by placing a cookie on your web browser. This cookie does not identify you in any way or give access to your computer or mobile device; it only serves to tell other websites that you have visited a particular page and to show them ads relating to that page. Google AdWords remarketing allows us to tailor our marketing to better meet your needs and display only those ads that are of interest to you.

If you don’t want to receive ads from us, there are several ways to unsubscribe:

Disable Google’s use of “cookies” by visiting the Google Ads settings.

Opt out of third-party cookies by visiting the following links to help you unsubscribe from interest-based online marketing:

Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) – https://optout.networkadvertising.org/

Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) https://optout.aboutads.info/?c=3&lang=fr

Digital Advertising Alliance Canada (DAAC) – https://youradchoices.ca/fr/en-savoir-plus/

Disable targeted marketing from Instagram and Facebook by following the steps outlined in their respective privacy and cookie policies or websites. This won’t stop them from following you, it just means your information won’t be used to show you targeted ads.

However, doing so:

Does not mean that advertising for our products and services on our own websites will stop being personalized to your interests;

Cannot stop all online behavioral advertising, as these websites apply to third-party advertising agencies registered for these services;

Does not mean that there will be no more advertising on this website or on other websites you access. However, the advertising you see may be less relevant to your interests;

Deleting cookies from your browser may remove your opt-out preferences, so you may need to unsubscribe again.

In addition, you can deactivate some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s deactivation portal at https://optout.aboutads.info/?c=3&lang=fr.

Note on “Do Not Track”;

“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browser. When a user activates the “Do Not Track” signal, the browser sends a message to websites asking them not to track the user. Please note that due to the lack of consistent industry enforcement on how to respond to “Do Not Track” signals, we do not change our data collection and use practices when we detect this signal from your browser. For more information on Do Not Track, please visit: org.
