Privacy policy

We consider your privacy to be of utmost importance.

This policy applies to this site as well as to all interactions with the Centre d’interventions spinales (CIS), the Centre de physiatrie Val-des-Arbres (VDA) and the Institut de physiatrie du Québec (IPQ) arising from the use of this site. In order to ensure the security of your personal and confidential data, the CIS, the IPQ and VDA comply particularly with the requirements set out in the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information.

Exchange of Information

• No personal or confidential information is collected without the prior consent of the Internet user.
• No personal or confidential information is stored on your device by our website.
• No personal or confidential information is kept on our Internet-exposed website.

Use of cookies

The use of cookies on websites is the norm rather than the exception and most browsers are programmed to accept them. Cookies only keep information related to your movements within our site and do not have the ability to retrieve other types of data from your hard drive.

No personal information is collected without the prior consent of the Internet user.

Information transmited automatically between computers does not identify you personally. They are collected only because of the inherent requirements in browsing the Internet and are used for statistical purposes.

You can configure your browser at any time to block cookies. However, this action may deprive you of certain functions offered on the sites.

The use of Google Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics, a Web audience measurement tool. To collect information concerning your navigation on this site, Google Analytics uses cookies, which are kept on severs located primarily in the United States. Google may transmit this information to third parties if legally required to do so, or if these third parties process the data on its behalf.

The information collected by the tool are, for example:
• which pages you consult
• the date, time, duration and frequency of your visits
• the links on which you click
• the type of operating system of your computer and the language used
• the name of your Internet service provider and your geographical position (region)
• your IP address is also collected, but is anonymized (truncated) to ensure the confidentiality of the information concerning you. The anonymization of an IP address prevents a web surfer from being identified by means of that address.

Google uses the information collected only to produce statistics and reports on navigation on this site, which enables the government to improve its provision of electronic services. Google will in no event relate the information collected on this site with any other data that it stores.
If you wish, you may prevent Google from recording information concerning your navigation by installing on your computer the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Addon.


Once you click on a link and leave the website of CIS, IPQ and/or VDA, the information exchanged from that point on is not covered by our privacy policy, but rather by that of the private site involved. As a precaution, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of the site in question.

For further information, you may contact the person in charge of access to documents and protection of personal information for our clinics.
