Privacy policy

Welcome to ( a website by the Association pour la santé publique du Québec (ASPQ).


The following describes the policy of Positive mental health rain or shine, a campaign of the Association pour la santé publique du Québec (ASPQ), regarding the confidentiality of personal information collected through the site (hereinafter referred to as "SITE").


The ASPQ does not collect any personal information about you when you browse the SITE, unless you voluntarily provide such information by explicitly registering for a specific service that invites you to do so. You will always have the option of declining this request or discontinuing a subscription to a personalization service that you have previously chosen.

Intellectual property and authorization to reproduce

The personal information you are invited to provide on the SITE, such as your last name, first name, e-mail address and certain other information, is used to personalize the service you receive via the SITE and to send you various information by e-mail, if you wish. The ASPQ may periodically send SITE users newsletters about its activities.


ASPQ uses cookies to recognize SITE users in order to offer them the personalization services they have registered for and to keep track of their visits to the SITE. Le Collectif Vital also uses "cookies" in order to evaluate traffic on the SITE or to develop its rates for the sale of advertising space. You may choose at any time not to be subject to cookies by modifying the configuration of your browser.


The ASPQ cannot be held responsible for damage to your computer equipment or any other property in connection with accessing, browsing or downloading content from its website.


Without your explicit and prior authorization, the personal information collected by the ASPQ remains strictly for the use of the ASPQ and is not accessible to any of our clients, partners, advertisers or other outside parties, subject to what is set out in the Statistics and Advertising and Compliance with the Law sections. Only ASPQ agents responsible for managing and developing the SITE have access to the information collected therein. These representatives or agents have been instructed to comply with the present confidentiality policy.


The ASPQ may carry out statistical analyses of user behaviour in order to assess the interest aroused by the various sections of the SITE and thus improve it, and also to inform advertisers of the number of users who have "clicked" on their advertising banners.


ASPQ may disclose a user's personal information if we are legally required to do so or if we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process; (2) protect and defend our rights and interests or those of our users; (3) protect against unauthorized use of the SITE; or (4) protect the personal safety or interests of our users or the general public.


Despite the precautions taken by ASPQ to ensure that a third party will not have access to your personal information via the SITE, such leaks may occur. The Internet offers no guarantee of security, and the transfer of information via the Internet is therefore subject to possible interception, loss or alteration. Le Collectif Vital declines all responsibility for damages resulting from possible access by third parties, via the Internet, to the personal information of SITE members, who use the SITE at their own risk.


The SITE may contain links to websites operated by third parties ("OTHER SITES"). Activating these links may cause you to leave the SITE. ASPQ has no control over OTHER SITES, and the existence of such links in no way implicates ASPQ's responsibility. Any information you transmit to these OTHER SITES will be subject to their respective privacy policies and practices. The ASPQ declines all responsibility for any abuse that may result.


The ASPQ reserves the right to modify the present privacy policy without prior notice and therefore invites you to consult it periodically..


By browsing the SITE, you signify your assent, without reservation, to this Privacy Policy in its entirety.


If you have any questions about this privacy policy, please contact Thomas Bastien, Executive Director of the Quebec Public Health Association, at .
