This policy sets out the terms and conditions regarding the protection of the personal information of the Visitor to the Internet site of Presima and how the Visitor’s personal information is used, processed and transmitted.
When the Visitor decides to use Presima’s Internet site (hereinafter the “Site”), he accepts Presima’s practices regarding the processing of and the measures to safeguard his personal information (hereinafter the “Policy”). The Visitor agrees, in particular, to the gathering and use of his personal information by Presima in accordance with the Policy, it being understood that Presima complies with prevailing legislation in personal information matters.
The Visitor agrees and acknowledges that Presima reserves the right, at any time, to amend, change or update the Policy, and the Visitor agrees to be bound by such amendments, changes or updates. The Visitor’s use of the Site after any such amendment constitutes his agreement to accept the Policy thus amended and to be bound by it. If the Visitor does not accept this Policy, or as the case may be, the Policy as amended from time to time, he should not use the Site.
Electronic personal information
Even though the Visitor can visit the Site without informing Presima who he is and without revealing information about himself, in accessing the Site there is an automatic exchange of information between the Visitor’s computer and Presima’s server. This exchange of information does not enable Presima to identify the Visitor, his name or e-mail address. However, this exchange, among other things, enables Presima to obtain the Internet domain name that the Visitor used to access the Site (for instance, “xcompany.com” where the Visitor uses a private Internet access account, or “university.edu” where the Visitor accesses through a university), the Visitor’s IP address (IP stands for Internet Protocol, a single number assigned to your computer when it is connected to the Internet and which enables documents intended for you to be downloaded without mistake), the type of browser and the operating system used by the Visitor to access the Site, the date and time the Visitor accessed the Site, the pages he visited and, where the Visitor accesses the Site from another site, then, this site’s address (referent site).
Other personal information
Presima only gathers other personal information about the Visitor if he, at his sole discretion, decides to provide such information voluntarily. However, if the Visitor wishes to receive information from Presima or to have his name added to Presima’s mailing list, the Visitor must disclose his e-mail address so that Presima’s server can respond to his request or, as the case may be, send him the requested information. This other information is also gathered so as to enable and manage the Visitor’s inclusions on Presima’s mailing list (including, in particular, the modification of the parameters of his inclusion on or deletion of his name from the mailing list), to facilitate the communication of relevant information to Visitors and for better knowledge of their profiles. This information is strictly confidential and will not be used for commercial prospection or solicitation purposes.
A copy of the personal information the Visitor provides to Presima and which Presima retains is kept on Presima’s servers in Montréal, Québec, Canada. The Visitor can access the personal information he provides to Presima and notify Presima to update, change or delete certain information that Presima gathered during his visit, by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where it deems it appropriate, Presima uses encryption or authentication tools, or both, as well as other means to protect certain personal information derived from the Web and kept on its server. The Visitor acknowledges and agrees that the e-mail messages that he sends to Presima can be tampered with before they reach Presima’s server.
Personal information, electronic or other, gathered by Presima is not disclosed to anyone, except Presima’s Representatives who need such information to discharge a duty associated with the fulfillment of the purposes set out in this Policy. The Visitor agrees and acknowledges that Presima is also authorized to use, disclose or communicate the Visitor’s personal information to the extent provided or required by law, including pursuant to court orders.
For the purposes of this Policy, the word Visitor means the person who, in fact, browses the Site as well as the person who authorizes the use of the computer or, as the case may be, the browsing equipment.
The Policy covers the entire agreement between the Visitor and Presima regarding Presima’s processing and use of the Visitor’s personal information, and supersedes the prior written or verbal agreements between the Visitor and Presima with regard to the subject matter hereof.
In the event of discrepancy between the two (2) versions of the Policy, the French version takes precedence.
The masculine gender is used for easy reading purposes and includes the feminine.
This Policy is governed by the laws of the Province of Québec, Canada. The Visitor recognizes the exclusive jurisdiction and competency of the courts of Québec, Canada, in the event of any dispute related to this Policy.
In the event of discrepancy between one of the rules set out in the Policy and a specific rule set out on a page of the Site in relation to particular personal information, the specific rule shall take precedence.
