Transmitting Personal Information

In accordance with the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information (Act respecting Access), La Financière agricole must be sure that it needs the information and must inform you of:

  • Name and address of the public body on whose behalf the information is being collected;
  • Use to which the information will be put;
  • Categories of persons who will have access to the information;
  • Fact that a reply is obligatory, or that it is optional;
  • Consequences for the person concerned or, as the case may be, for the third person, in the case of a refusal to reply;

However, if you do decide to send us personal information, by e-mail or by filling in a form, you can be sure that we will use only the information we require to answer your message and to follow up on it. Electronic messages are treated as confidentially as regular mail.

The personal information transmitted is not disclosed to any other government body unless disclosure is required by the Act respecting Access, by another law or as a result of a positive notice from the Commission d’accès à l’information.
