Privacy and the protection of confidential information are of the utmost importance to Revenu Québec.
Our online services (My Account and clicSÉQUR express) collect confidential information that we use to process your file, apply the laws in effect and administer programs.
We may also collect information regarding your identity (such as your name, address, telephone number and certain identification numbers) in order to:
- confirm your identity in exchanges with you;
- retrieve the information needed to process your file;
- ensure the confidentiality of your information.
Both revenuquebec.ca and justepourtous.revenuquebec.ca use Google Analytics, a Web audience measurement tool.
Google Analytics collects information about the pages you consult, the date, time, duration and frequency of your visits and the links you click. It also collects information about your operating system, language used, Internet service provider and geographical position (region). Your IP address is also collected, but is anonymized (truncated) to ensure the confidentiality of the information about you and prevent you from being identified.
Google uses the information collected only to produce statistics and reports on navigation on the sites, which enables us to improve our electronic service offer. Under no circumstances will Google relate the information collected on the sites with any other data that it stores.
If you wish, you may prevent Google from recording information about you by installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
We make sure that only authorized employees have access to information regarding you and that they require the information to carry out their duties. For more information, consult our Inventory of Confidential Information Banks (in French only).
As provided for by law, we may release confidential information regarding you to other government bodies and organizations without your prior consent. For more information, consult the following registers:
Most of the information we collect is kept on-site at our offices. However, in accordance with the law, we may entrust the keeping of certain information to a third party not located on our premises.
After confidential information has been used for its intended purpose, it is destroyed, subject to the requirements of the retention schedule approved by Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec and any legal requirements.
Our security measures meet the highest standards in the field of information security. This ensures that information is protected during collection, use, storage, release and destruction. To learn more, click Data Security.
You are responsible for the information that you submit to us and for the confidentiality of your identification data and passwords (if applicable). We cannot be held responsible for unauthorized use of this information.
