Collection of personal information

STL collects personal information directly from the user. For STL to be able to use your personal information, you have accepted either: 

  • by tacit consent: you provide personal information in order to obtain information, for example, via a telephone query to STL Customer Contact Center or via the query form in the “Contact us” section. 
  • by express consent: you provide personal information to obtain a service from STL, for example, by creating a “Customer Space” account. 

Sometimes, under agreements with partners or suppliers or following the application of legislation, certain information may be collected by third parties and transmitted to STL or vice versa. 

 

Use of personal information

Only authorized personnel or a supplier authorized by contract with STL may have access to information concerning you. STL ensures that these persons are qualified to access this information and that it is necessary for the performance of their duties. 

Your information is used for purposes agreed by STL, particularly in order to: 

  • respond to requests (information, queries, complaints, comments) formulated online or by phone to customer service (Customer Contact Center);
  • provide a service requested by the customer (newsletter, “Customer Space” account, paratransit reservation, Synchro app request management module, etc.);
  • participate in contests or promotions;
  • improve STL’s service and the customer experience. 

Applicable legislation 

Since the personal information created, collected or retained by STL is subject to the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information (CQLR, c. A-2.1), all individuals have a right of access and, in some cases, a right of correction of information that concerns them and that is held by STL. Other legislation may also apply, case by case. 

Communication of information

STL does not transfer, sell, rent, exchange, loan or assign any personal information that is sent to it through electronic means of communication, unless the sender of such information consents to it or unless STL is obliged to do so by law or following a decision of a competent court.

Compilation of browsing data during access to the Tools

When a user accesses the Tools, he/she acknowledges that browsing data is automatically compiled between the user’s computer and STL’s computer system. This data consists of:

  • the Internet domain name, the Internet protocol address, the type of browser and the type of operating system of the device from which the user accesses this site;
  • the date and time of access;
  • the pages viewed;
  • the address of any referencing website, if applicable.

This compilation of data is essential in order to compile statistics and technical indications pertaining to the use of these Tools. However, this data does not make it possible to identify the user personally. STL does not try to determine the personal identity of a user, unless it detects an operation that is contrary to the terms and conditions for using this site.

STL could use this information for statistical information, particularly in order to account for the number of visitors and know the most frequently visited web pages.

Cookies

In general, the Tools do not contain any cookies. Nevertheless, access to certain services that are available on these Tools requires a temporary cookie file to be placed in the user’s computer. This is particularly the case for the itinerary planner and personalization mechanisms such as the Customer Space. The user may configure his/her web browser so as to prevent such files from being installed on their computer’s hard drive. In so doing, however, the user will not be able to access some of the services or documents offered in the Tools.

A user who subscribes to STL’s electronic transmission is responsible for configuring the privacy settings of his/her software or email messaging, particularly for downloading images, with a complete waiver of STL’s liability. A user who chooses automatic downloading of images upon opening an email or who accepts to download the images contained in an email understands that he/she is exposed to installation of an invisible pixel. This type of pixel generally allows collection of statistical data for purposes of analysis and targeted marketing. 

Data linking or cross-referencing 

When a user creates an account or accesses his/her profile in the Customer Space, data could be linked or cross-referenced between this account and the data already held by STL concerning this  user, if applicable, in order to update the information relating to the customer profile, favourites, queries or an automated paratransit reservation system, if applicable. 

 

Retention of personal information

STL retains the personal information for the periods necessary for the purposes outlined herein and to honour its legal obligations, particularly in compliance with the period stipulated in its retention schedule, in application of the Archives Act (CQLR, c. A-21.1).

 

Protection of personal information

STL undertakes to:

  • collect, use and retain personal information only for the purposes of the needs identified; 
  • protect the confidentiality of personal information by means of security measures according to the generally accepted industry standards and in accordance with the legislation; 
  • retain your personal information only for the period required in relation to the services provided by STL and according to the prescriptions of the legislation; 
  • ensure that it does not disclose your personal information to a third party, unless you consent thereto or in order to satisfy a legal requirement; 
  • allow you access to or correction of your personal information in accordance with the legislation; 
  • not subscribe to the services of service providers for the collection, management and use of your personal information unless they make the same commitments to the protection of personal information as STL in your regard.

Disclaimer

There are no “secure” areas on this website, allowing for a separate and confidential dialogue between a user’s computer and STL’s computer system. In general, no data transmission on the Internet can be fully protected against misappropriation or malicious use. 

Although it does everything in its power to ensure secure access to these Tools and their functionalities, STL cannot guarantee that the information sent to it by email or Internet will reach it without having been falsified, viewed or altered by a third party, or without the integrity of that information or its authenticity having possibly been called into question in another way, nor even that this information will reach its intended destination. STL’s commitment with regard to the protection of personal information solely relates to the processing of information that is actually in its possession.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, although STL applies the generally accepted standards in the sector to protect the information submitted to it, it cannot warrant that such information will not be viewed, disclosed, altered or destroyed following a violation of its protective measures. 

If you have reasons to believe that personal information has been compromised, please communicate with STL’s Customer Contact Centre without delay at 450-688-6520, during business hours (see the Contact us section of this site).
