This statement details the obligations of the SHDM for that purpose and covers the activities of the websites shdm.org and accescondos.org, the Facebook pages of the Accès Condos projects, and any platform that could be developed online in the future.
Data collection and management of personal information
The SHDM offers people the option to subscribe to one of its newsletters by filling out a form. By registering their email, the users give express consent to receive information on the various projects of the SHDM.
As part of the process of subscribing to one of its newsletters, or participating in a contest on one of its sites or Facebook pages, the SHDM requests certain personal information through a detailed form. It uses the information thus collected for statistical analysis and the development of relevant products in affordable housing.
Note that the SHDM does not collect online any information related to a financial transaction (credit card number or other banking data) or to an identity check (social insurance number or driver’s license). Where appropriate, the information transferred through its platforms is encoded,
Moreover, the only cookies (or other application installed on the visitor’s computer) that the SHDM uses, is solely to customize the visitor’s experience. These files are neither shared nor stored.
Data exclusivity and anonymity
The SHDM does not sell personal information collected through subscriptions to its newsletters. The SHDM does not share any statistical information of traffic, except for purposes of navigation and traffic analysis, and optimization of the website. This is done in a manner that protects the identity of Internet users.
All sociodemographic data is for the exclusive use of the SHDM and is analyzed anonymously.
Data safety and protection
The collected personal information is stored in a secure environment and employees who have access to it are required to respect its confidentiality.
To ensure the security of personal information, the following measures are implemented:
- Network monitoring software provided by the web host;
- Automatic backups;
The SHDM systems are regularly updated in order to meet evolving standards recognized in the field thus ensuring the confidentiality of transactions. However, as no mechanism offers maximum security, some risk is always present when transmitting personal information over the Internet.
