PERSONALLY NON-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Passively Collected User Data

When you interact with Duchesnay USA through this Website, we receive and store certain "User Data". Such User Data, which is collected passively using various technologies, is not used to specifically identify you. Duchesnay USA may store such User Data itself or it may be stored in databases owned and maintained by Duchesnay USA's affiliates, agents or service providers. Duchesnay USA retains all rights to these databases and the information contained in them.

This Website will use such User Data together with data provided by other parties and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to this Website, the number of visitors to each page of this Website, the keywords visitors used to find this Website and the domain names of visitors' Internet service providers. Duchesnay USA may also disclose User Data in order to describe its services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes. It is important to note that no personally identifiable information "Personal Data" is available or used in this process.

Actively Collected User Data

Some areas of this Website may require you to submit certain Personal Data to grant you access to it. It is your choice whether to obtain such access. Should you not provide the requested information, you will still be permitted to access certain content on the Website.

Duchesnay USA will only collect your personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address, when you provide it to us through this Website. Duchesnay USA and/or the companies it hires will use this information to comply with your request for information or as otherwise disclosed to you on the Website when you submit your information to us. From time to time, Duchesnay USA may refer to this information to better understand your needs and how it can improve its products and services and may use this information to contact you.

Cookies

In operating this Website, Duchesnay USA may use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts Duchesnay USA's Website gives to your computer (actually to your browser) when you access a Website. Duchesnay USA's cookies help provide additional functionality to the Website and allows Duchesnay USA to analyze Website usage more accurately. For instance, this Site may set a cookie on your browser that eliminates any need for you to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which cookies are used, Personal Data is not collected. On most web browsers, you will find a "help" section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how you may turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Website's features.

INFORMATION USE AND DISCLOSURE

Duchesnay USA considers your information to be a vital part of its relationship with you. We will share information including Personal Data with its subsidiaries and affiliates that have also agreed to be bound by this Privacy Statement and Consent. In addition, Duchesnay USA, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. When a non-affiliated company is hired to perform a function of this nature, Duchesnay USA seeks to provide them with only the information that they need to perform their specific functions, and Duchesnay USA requires them to protect your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Statement and Duchesnay USA's restrictions. There are also a limited number of circumstances in which Duchesnay USA may share your Personal Data and other information in its possession with certain additional third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below.

Duchesnay USA may disclose your Personal Data, User Data and other information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Duchesnay USA or its affiliates; (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Website or the public; or (d) protect against legal liability. Notably, the collection, use, and disclosure of information may involve a transfer of information to countries other than the U.S. that may not have the same laws and rules regarding personally identifiable information. In such cases, you will be asked to consent to such transfers and disclosures in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Business Transfers, Combinations and Related Activities

As Duchesnay USA develops its business, it might sell, buy, restructure or reorganize. In the event of any sale, merger, reorganization, restructuring, dissolution or similar event involving Duchesnay USA's business or assets, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
