By browsing our website or using our platforms or services, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this Policy, and you agree that your personal information and data will be managed in accordance with it, where applicable.
To guarantee this protection, the Groupe Kenworth Montréal ensures that it obtains an individual's consent before collecting, processing, and disclosing information that could identify him or her.
The reasons and methods by which the Groupe Kenworth Montréal, or anyone acting on its behalf, will manage their personal data are explained in this Policy. It is written in simple terms to ensure complete understanding and informed consent on the part of users.
Methods of obtaining consent
We ensure that we obtain consent before collecting personal information from anyone. This consent may be implied and may be given either by the individual him/herself, or by an authorized representative.
Implied consent can be inferred from an individual's actions or non-actions. For example, providing a name and telephone number to obtain a response is perceived as implicit consent to the collection of this information.
If we intend to use personal information for another purpose, we will specify this new purpose and consent will be sought again.
In certain situations, such as a government request, it may not be possible to obtain an individual's consent to process his or her personal information. We will never share personal information outside the terms of this Policy, except as required or permitted by law.

We and our partners use technologies that collect non-critical information from your device to refine our offerings and present advertising and content tailored to your preferences. You have the choice to accept or refuse certain of these purposes.
Essential and security: We use technologies and cookies (“cookies”) which are essential to ensure the optimal functioning and security of our online services. Their deactivation is not possible. They help us and our partners to secure your connection by saving your credentials, to adapt your interface (for example, the choice of language), to reduce the sending of fraudulent forms and to remember your preferences regarding the use of technologies that collect your information.
Experience analysis and optimization: The data collected by these technologies plays a crucial role in constantly enriching your browsing experience. They help us and our partners to understand how you interact with our online services (for example, where you come from and your navigation path) and to evaluate and analyze the use of our platforms by generating statistics and data on traffic (such as pages viewed). You have the possibility, at any time, to revoke your consent to the use of these technologies.
Marketing and advertising: This collected data helps us and our partners remember the links you click and the pages you visit on our online platforms. This allows us to better understand your preferences and suggest offers and services tailored to your expectations. They also facilitate the creation of target groups, i.e. sets of users sharing similar interests, to personalize our advertising campaigns and evaluate their impact more effectively. You have the possibility, at any time, to revoke your consent to the use of these technologies.

Treatment processes used
Groupe Kenworth Montréal attaches the utmost importance to the protection of your personal information and undertakes to treat it in accordance with industry standards and norms, and solely for the purposes for which it was collected, as stipulated in this Policy or any other specific notice. However, given the security risks associated with transmission over the Internet, total protection of such data is not guaranteed. Therefore, any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.
How to access and manage your personal information
Groupe Kenworth Montréal ensures that personal information in its possession is as accurate, up-to-date, and complete as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.
You have the right to request access to your personal information to verify it and to request rectification if it proves to be inaccurate. If you consider that your data is inaccurate or if you wish to consult your information, you can send a request using the contact details given at the end of this Policy.
We will do our best to provide you with prompt access to your data. However, for security reasons, we may need to confirm your identity.
There may be circumstances where we cannot give you access to your information, for example if this would involve disclosing the personal data of another person who has not given their consent, or if there are legal constraints on such disclosure. If this is the case, we will inform you of the reasons why access is being denied.
If your request concerns data on third-party websites or platforms, please contact these entities directly.
Sharing and reasons for sharing personal information with third parties

Throughout this retention period, Groupe Kenworth Montréal implements physical and technical measures to ensure the security and accuracy of personal information.
It is possible that personal information may be stored outside the user's country of residence, particularly if a third-party supplier or other entity to which we transmit information in accordance with this Policy is based abroad.
