GMMQ Privacy Policy

The Guilde des musiciens et musiciennes du Québec (hereinafter “GMMQ”) is very concerned about protecting privacy on the Internet. The collection, use, and circulation of personal information on the Internet and by e-mail require very special consideration. The GMMQ would like to inform Internet users that:

 

Personal information

The GMMQ Internet site contains personal information intended for the public in its member directory. The primary goal of this directory is to help Québec musicians in particular acquire job contracts and is not intended for the purposes of business or philanthropic prospecting, sending unsolicited e-mails, chain letters or any other form of unsolicited communication.

 

Notice to members

The personal information contained on the GMMQ Internet site is collected from the membership form and member directory, which are both secure. This information is collected only if it is voluntarily submitted by you and will be used strictly for administrative purposes and published in the member directory when you are a member of the GMMQ. Your member profile, which is accessible only to members on the GMMQ Internet site, is protected by password. You can change the sensitivity level of the information that can be accessed by the public in the member directory. The information collected from the membership form is private.

Security

As soon as you submit personal information through the GMMQ Internet site, we do everything in our power to ensure that it is securely stored in our system. All personal information that you submit is kept in protected files. The GMMQ recommends that you refrain from distributing personal information on the Internet or by e-mail unless it is encrypted. We also advise you not to send us personal information by e-mail unless it has been encrypted beforehand.

Disclosure of personal information to third parties

Should you choose to provide us with personal information in an e-mail or a form that you submit through our Internet site, rest assured that we use only the information we need to answer your message and provide follow up. Personal information provided to the GMMQ is never sold or leased. Except in emergencies, personal information provided to the GMMQ is never disclosed to third parties without the knowledge and consent of the person concerned. Electronic messages are handled with the same confidentiality as regular mail.
