Thank you for visiting the website of the Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM). Please read this policy carefully and refer to it regularly to find out about any changes that may be made.
Automatic exchange of information
When you access the www.ircm.qc.ca site, your computer and the website server automatically exchange information. However, this exchange does not identify you personally.
The website collects this information due to the technical requirements of Internet navigation. The server needs the information to send you files that are compatible with the computer system you are using. We assure you that in any case, these requirements will not identify you personally.
Information is kept and used for statistical purposes. It is used to track the number of visits, most frequently visited pages, technology used by visitors, referring sites, and visitors’ country of origin. This information is never used to draw up lists of users.
Transmission of personal information
This website does not collect any personal information without the consent of the visitor. We comply with legislation regarding personal information.
In general, you are not required to provide any personal information. The only exceptions apply to certain departments that may ask for information. In that case, strict measures are taken to ensure that the site is secure.
We remind you that the transmission of information by electronic mail is not completely secure. For that reason, we advise you not to disclose any personal information in emails. We follow the same policy: we do not answer questions by email that involve sending information of a confidential nature.
