Our main servers are located in a secure data center in Quebec. To ensure data redundancy and availability, we may also use backup servers located in other provinces or countries, while respecting the requirements of Bill 25 on the protection of personal information.

International transfers :

When personal data is transferred outside Quebec, we conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to ensure that the level of protection offered is consistent with our high standards of confidentiality and Quebec legal requirements.
