Non-personal information is collected by means of “cookies”, Web beacons and other technologies designed to analyze data and personalize services. Most major sites, including Canam Group Inc., gather this type of information through such means to better serve their clients or users.

Non-personal information does not allow us to identify visitors personally or to create user profiles. The process of compiling non-personal information provides us with statistical data on traffic volume and patterns and helps us measure the effectiveness of our websites.

3. Web-related risks

Even though Canam Group Inc. strives to ensure that your personal information will not be accessed by third parties, data transmitted over the Internet can conceivably be intercepted, lost or altered. Consequently, Canam Group Inc. cannot be held liable for the use that may be made of personal information by any third party.

4. Links to external sites

Our various websites may provide links to third-party websites. If you choose to use those links, you do so freely and voluntarily. These links are provided solely for reference purposes. Since third-party sites have been developed by parties other than Canam Group Inc. and its companies, Canam Group Inc. has no control over them and therefore is not responsible for their content.
