Your Personal Information

The MMFA respects Canada’s Privacy Act. As a result, our website and mobile application are protected by physical and digital barriers, as well management policies that were created to protect the information users share.

The MMFA will not in any way transmit, sell, lease, exchange or divulge to any third parties any of the personal information collected on the site or the mobile application during regular transactions, unless the website or mobile application user has specifically given consent or we are required to by law.

The MMFA relies on an outside supplier to handle our online transactions. However, the personal information that this supplier receives is for transactional purposes and will, in no case, be shared by this supplier with third parties.

Although the MMFA may compile statistics on its web and mobile visitors, clients, sales, online traffic and other pertinent markers, the data does not contain any personal information enabling visitors to be identified. Should the MMFA be constrained to divulge any information about a visitor collected during an online transaction, it will only do so because it was reasonably necessary in order to respect the law, to apply the terms of use of the MMFA’s website or mobile application, or to respect the rights, property and safety of MMFA, its users and any third parties.
