Protection Against Fraud and Theft of Your Personal Information

Doctr undertakes at all times to comply with the laws and regulations applicable to its business and to take all useful and necessary measures to detect and prevent negligence, fraud and theft of your personal information. However, although Doctr takes precautions, it cannot guarantee that no case of fraud or theft of your personal information will occur.

Doctr maintains a confidentiality incident log and will contact any User whose personal information is the subject of such an incident and presents a risk of serious harm.

Anti-Spam Legislation

Doctr complies with the requirements of the Canadian Anti-Spam Act (CASL). The User understands that he may explicitly or tacitly consent to receive messages from Doctr.

The explicit consent is the consent asked to the User, which must be expressed in simple and clear terms, and must include the purposes for which the consent is sought, the regulatory information necessary to identify the person seeking for the consent and, if sought on behalf of another person, the regulatory information necessary to identify this person; as well as any other information specified by the regulations enabled by this law.

The User understands that they give their tacit consent through ongoing business or personal relations; when the User publishes his email address without stating that they do not wish to receive unsolicited commercial emails; or when the message is sent in other circumstances provided by the regulations enabled by this law.

a) For the purpose of this Policy, ongoing business relations refer to commercial relations set out between two persons such as a purchase or lease in the two years prior to the date of the message; an investment; bartering of an object; any contract that came in effect or expired during that time; or a request made in the six months prior to the date of the message.

b) For the purpose of this Policy, ongoing personal relations refer to relations set out between two persons other than business relations, such as a donation or a gift, a work executed as volunteer; and a subscription, within the meaning of the regulations; any of them occurring within the two years prior the date of the message.

The personal information Doctr collects is stored in a secured environment. Doctr has taken appropriate measures to preserve the confidentiality of personal information and to protect it from loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, communication, reproduction, use or modification, taking into account, in particular, their sensitivity and the purposes for which they are employed. In addition, Doctr requires that each Doctr employee, agent or representative comply with this Policy.

To ensure the security of the User’s personal information, Doctr employs, among other things, the following measures:

  • SSL (Secure Sockets Layers) protocol ;
  • Protected access to servers and computers ;
  • Firewall ;
  • Password-protected usage of data networks ;
  • Non-disclosure agreements with employees ;
  • Canadian server ;
  • Data encryption at rest ; and

Doctr is thus committed to maintaining a high level of security by integrating the latest technological innovations to ensure the confidentiality of the User’s transactions in order to ensure the protection of his personal data and avoid they should not be accessed, used or disclosed without authorization.

However, as no mechanism provides maximum security, there is always a risk when using the Internet to communicate personal information. If a password is used to protect the User’s account and personal information, it is his responsibility to keep it confidential.
