Privacy policy

The ACDQ is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of the personal information you entrust to us. This policy outlines the various practices adopted by the ACDQ with respect to the protection of personal information.

Personal information and privacy

Personal information means any information relating to a natural person that allows that person to be identified.

Collection, use and disclosure of personal information

The ACDQ may collect personal information about you when you interact with us, whether through a form you fill out or an email you send us. This information will be collected with your consent on a voluntary basis.

Personal data collection will be used exclusively by the ACDQ to communicate with you, provide you with the services and information you request, or send you information that may be of interest to you. Unless otherwise authorized by you, the ACDQ will use personal information for these purposes only, or as otherwise permitted by law.

The ACDQ undertakes not to communicate your personal information to third parties, except when you have given your consent or when the law permits or requires it. In the latter case, the ACDQ undertakes to take the necessary measures to adequately protect your personal information and to limit disclosure to only those elements required.


Although this Website is intended for minors, we do not solicit minors to provide personal information. Thus, we will not collect, use or disclose personal information about a minor for advertising, customer profiling or any other purpose that could reasonably be expected to harm minors.

Browsing the Internet

When you browse the Internet, your browser detects whether the communication is adequately protected and displays a padlock symbol on the page to confirm that the communication to a website is secure.

All confidential data that passes between your communication device and the Website is protected by effective cryptography, thus ensuring the confidentiality of your information.
