This Privacy Policy (hereinafter the "Policy") comes into effect on September 22, 2023. Woody Equipment INC. Inc. is committed to protecting the confidentiality and security of all your personal information, as defined in section 2, collected due to our relationship with you. This Policy explains, among other things:
  • The types of personal information we collect;
  • When we collect this information;
  • How we use and share the personal information we collect;
  • The measures we take to ensure the adequate protection of your personal information throughout its lifecycle;
  • How you can contact us if you have questions about your personal information.
This Policy has been implemented to comply with the laws of the province of Quebec and applicable Canadian laws regarding privacy and personal information. The Policy applies to any personal information about you that we collect or receive from you or any other source, through our website or any communication method. The Policy is current and may be modified at any time. Our site may contain links to other websites owned and operated by third parties. Please note that the Policy does not apply to such websites or the services they refer to, and we assume no responsibility for their content.


The Policy applies to personal information as defined in the Private Sector Privacy Act, meaning any information about an individual that allows, directly or indirectly, their identification.

We commit to obtaining consent before collecting an individual's personal information. Consent may be explicit when required by law or implicit in other cases and may be provided directly by the individual or by their authorized representative. By browsing our website or using our systems or services, you acknowledge having read and understood this Policy and consent to the processing of your personal information in accordance with it. Please note that we do not collect personal information from individuals under the age of 14. If a parent or guardian discovers that their child, or the one under their guardianship, has provided us with personal information without their consent, the parent or guardian must contact us using the contact information provided in the "Contact Us" section on the last page of the Policy to have this information destroyed.

Finally, phone calls we receive may be recorded and listened to for quality control purposes. Additionally, closed-circuit security cameras may be used inside and outside our offices to ensure the safety of customers, employees, and third parties.

We do not disclose your personal information to anyone without your consent. Notwithstanding the above, we may share your personal information in the following cases:

  • To appoint or conclude a contract;

We may offer certain products and services that will be provided by agents and third parties.

We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual, and technological security measures to protect your personal information and reduce the risk of loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, misuse, or modification of your personal information. We update and periodically review such security measures.


Despite these security measures and our efforts, you acknowledge that no system or network can be entirely secure, and there are inherent risks in disclosing personal information on web browsers and electronic devices.
