If a parent or guardian discovers that their minor child has provided us with personal information without us having obtained the appropriate consent, this parent or guardian has the right, upon request, to view the personal information provided by the child and/or to require that it be deleted from our records. In this case, we ask the parent or guardian of the child to contact us at the contact details indicated in the section "Privacy Officer".

5. WHY DO WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We only collect personal information that we believe is necessary for the following purposes:

  • To allow you to use the Websites, provide you with the requested services, maintain, update, and improve them;
  • To respond to your questions, queries, comments, or complaints;
  • To fulfill our business objectives, such as developing new products and services, improving or modifying our products and services, and hiring staff to meet these objectives;

  • To comply with any applicable law or regulation, or to act under those, including but not limited to:
  • responding to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence;
  • to protect our operations and legitimate interests or those of our subsidiaries;
  • to enable us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain, etc.
  • To facilitate and improve the use of our Websites, as long as the collected information is used proportionally to this end;
  • For any other purpose to which you have consented.

If we wish to use your personal information to achieve a goal not mentioned above and for which you have not consented, we will ensure to ask for appropriate consent or inform you of the change, where permitted by law.

6. HOW DO WE DISCLOSE OR SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Your personal information will not be sold to third parties.

We share your personal information with third parties for (i) achieving our objectives, (ii) responding to requirements or requests made under applicable laws, (iii) fulfilling tasks entrusted to us by contract by our clients.

Most of the time, you have already consented to such sharing. Sometimes, applicable laws also allow us to share your personal information with third parties without your consent, in specific cases.

More specifically, we may need to share your personal information, sometimes without your consent:

  • With our employees. As part of their work, our employees and officers may need to access your personal information, for example, when you contact us. Their access is limited to what is necessary to perform their tasks.
  • With our service providers. Our business partners sometimes need to access or receive certain personal information to perform their services (payment provider, cloud data hosting, maintenance, analysis, fraud detection, and development). In such a case, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protection measures, including Privacy Impact Assessments, to ensure that these third parties keep strictly confidential all personal information they process.

The personal information we collect is stored on secure servers with restricted access, generally based in Canada, either on our own servers or on those of third-party service providers.

Please note that third parties may be located elsewhere than in your country, province, or territory of residence, for example, Google Analytics and Shopify, which process data in the United States. Be aware that we have contractual agreements with these third parties and providers to ensure that your personal information is processed in accordance with the laws applicable to us. Where applicable, we proceed with Privacy Impact Assessments before a transfer of personal information to another jurisdiction, for example, outside of Quebec.

  • With authorities or persons authorized by law. We may share your personal information if the law requires it or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to:
  • Comply with the law;
  • Comply with the order of a competent judicial authority in any jurisdiction;
  • Comply with a legal process;
  • Protect and defend the rights or property of Mondoux;
  • Enforce or verify your compliance with any part of the contracts you have entered into with us, if applicable;
  • Prevent fraud or any other illegal activity perpetrated through the service; or
  • Act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or the public in general.
  • With potential buyers of our business. We may need to share your personal information without your consent in the event of a merger, acquisition, or sale, of all or part of the business, for example, as part of due diligence. In such a case, we limit sharing to what is necessary to assess the feasibility or opportunity of the transaction.

7. DURATION OF RETENTION OF COLLECTED PERSONAL INFORMATION

Mondoux will retain your personal information only for the duration required to achieve the purposes for which they were collected, in accordance with our internal document retention policies and to comply with applicable legal, tax, or regulatory requirements. The retention periods for each personal information may therefore vary depending on its use. After such a period, any concerned personal information held by Mondoux will be destroyed, deleted, or anonymized.

You may also request the deletion of your account by sending an email request.

8. WHAT SECURITY MEASURES PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

The security of your personal information is a priority for us.

Your personal information is hosted by our service providers who commit to us to use reasonable security measures to preserve the integrity and confidentiality of your personal information.

Our employees and providers are informed of the confidential nature of the personal information collected and are sensitized to appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access to personal information.

We maintain our service and all associated data with technical, administrative, and physical protection measures to protect you against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification, and inappropriate disclosure of your personal information. These protection measures vary according to the sensitivity of the data in our possession and are inspired by the best industry standards. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

If you have questions about the security of your interaction with us (if, for example, you feel that the security of any account you may have with us has been compromised), you can contact us at privacy@mondoux.ca.

9. WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS?

Depending on applicable laws, where you reside, and how you interact with the Websites, certain rights may be granted to you regarding the personal information we hold about you.

For example, you might have the right:

  • To obtain access to the personal information we hold about you;
  • To correct the personal information we hold that is inaccurate, ambiguous, or incomplete;
  • To obtain additional information, for example, about the categories of third parties to whom we communicate your personal information;
  • To request the portability of your personal information in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format;
  • To withdraw your consent at any time if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted on the basis of legitimate processing grounds other than consent.
  • To refuse promotional communications sent by Mondoux;
  • To file a complaint with a personal information protection authority, for example, with a privacy commissioner or the Access to Information Commission.
Filing a complaint

You can also exercise your rights listed above by making a written request to our Privacy Officer. They can assist you in your efforts if you need help.

For your protection, we will only process requests to exercise rights coming from the same email address that you use to log in to your account. We may also need to verify your identity before processing your request. Depending on applicable laws, we will inform you of the procedure to follow, the processing time, and the required information, if applicable. We try to respond to requests quickly, usually within 30 days.

In the context of the processing activities covered by this Policy, Mondoux does not make decisions based solely on automated processing that produces legal effects or similarly significant effects.
