Your privacy is of the utmost importance to Culture Gaspésie, which is responsible for the Circuit des arts de la Gaspésie portal. 

The purpose of this confidentiality policy is to inform you of the practices adopted with regard to your personal or confidential information. 

Data exchanged automatically 

When you access this service, your computer and our server automatically exchange data. This exchange is necessary for the server to send you a file compatible with the computer equipment you are using. The data exchanged is as follows: 

  • the identification of your Internet service provider; 
  • your IP address (a numerical address that allows a computer connected to the Internet to be precisely located, for example:; 
  • the type of browser (e.g. Firefox, Explorer) and operating system (e.g. Windows, Mac OS) you are using; 
  • the pages you visit; 
  • the date and time you access these pages; 
  • the address of the referring site if you access this site from another website. 

Most of the information transmitted automatically between computers does not reveal your identity. It is only collected because of the technological requirements inherent to Internet browsing. 

Culture Gaspésie keeps this data for statistical purposes. It is used to count the number of visits and to identify the most frequently visited pages, the technology used by visitors, the addresses of referring sites and the country of origin of visitors. 

Use of cookies 

Cookies are used to make browsing the pages of this service easier. These cookies do not allow us to collect any personal information about you. You can set your browser to block cookies at any time. However, doing so may deprive you of certain functions offered on the site. 

If you use a computer in a public place or share a computer with other users, be sure to delete the traces of your browsing stored in the history before ending each session. 

Use of Google Analytics 

Culture Gaspésie uses Google Analytics, a web analytics tool, on this website. 

Using cookies, Google Analytics collects information about your navigation on this site, which is stored on servers located in the United States. Google may pass on this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the data on Google’s behalf. 

The information collected by the tool includes, for example, the pages you visit, the date, time, duration and frequency of your visits and the links you click on. The type and language of your computer’s operating system, the name of your Internet service provider and your geographical location (region) are also part of the information collected. Your IP address is also collected, but it is anonymised (truncated) to ensure the confidentiality of information about you. By anonymising an IP address, it is possible to prevent the identity of an Internet user from being known by means of this address. 

Google only uses the information collected to produce statistics and reports on navigation on this site, which allows Culture Gaspésie to improve its electronic service provision. Under no circumstances will Google link the information collected on this site with any other data held by Google. 

If you wish, you can prevent the recording by Google of information relating to your navigation by installing on your computer the browser add-on for the deactivation of Google Analytics.
