Confidentiality Policy

By using this Web site, you acknowledge having read, understood and agreed to the following terms and conditions and legal framework for the protection of personal information.

Does the MEES use cookies?

The MEES does not install cookies on the computer hard disks of site users.

Does the MEES collect information on my use of its website?

Some browsing data is automatically sent to us due to Internet technical requirements. This data helps us to improve content and facilitate your use of the site.

The data we collect are essentially the following:

  • Your IP address
  • The time of the access request
  • The name of the requested file, if applicable
  • The username, if registration is involved
  • The bit size of the response
  • The platform and software used in the access request
  • The Web site that directed you to us, if applicable

What about my personal information?

We will not require your name, telephone number or any other information that could be used to identify you unless you agree and send them to us voluntarily.

In what circumstances will I be obliged to provide personal information?

If you fill out an on-line form or send us an e-mail, you should be certain that the connection is secure.

Secure connections are shown as “https” URLs in your browser’s address bar, along with a closed padlock (or in some cases, a key).

You need to ensure that no one else can see the information you enter in your form or e-mail. In order to protect your personal information, never divulge your password or username information to anyone else.

How will you use my personal information?

Ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur employees will only use information that is required to follow up on your message or respond to your request.

Under the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information, if we ask you for personal information, we are required to provide you with the following information also:

  • Our names and addresses
  • What the information will be used for
  • The categories of persons that will be able to access the information
  • Whether the information requested is mandatory or optional
  • The consequences of refusing to comply with the request
  • Your legal rights of access and correction

If I click on a link to another site, will the connection remain secure?

The MEES is not able to control what happens on other Web sites, as they have their own policies on the protection of personal information.

While we are very careful about choosing our sources of reference, we do not endorse or express an opinion on third-party Web site services or information.

Who is responsible for access to documents and the protection of personal information at the MEES?
