Personal Information Protection Policy

Manitou Application


Momentum Technologies inc. (“MOMENTUM” or “we/us“) has implemented this privacy policy (the “Policy“), aware that, for users of the MANITOU mobile application (the “Application“), data quality, confidentiality, and security are paramount.

By accessing and using the Application, you on your own behalf consent to this Policy. More specifically, by accessing and using the Application, you expressly consent that the information you provide will be collected and used for the purposes mentioned below, in addition to the purposes for which you have expressly consented. This Policy is an integral part of the Terms of Use for the Application. To learn more about these conditions, please refer to your employer. If you do not agree to be bound by this Policy, please do not access or use the Application.

The Application is a mobile application reserved to authorized users of Manitou, our management system. More specifically, the Application allows you to query Manitou’s database in order to simplify time and expense account keeping and gathering of related information. For proper operation, the Application requires access to Manitou. To use it, you must be connected to the Internet and be able to send and receive data. The Application does not store any information on your mobile device.

The following sets out our practices for collecting and using information through the Application, including its functionalities, updates, and upgrades made available from time to time, as well as fixes and improvements that replace or complement the Application distributed under the same licence.

This Policy also aims to comply with Canadian laws relating to the protection of personal information and, where applicable, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR“), but in the latter case and as required, specific measures can be agreed with us in advance.

This Policy may be updated or amended from time to time. If applicable, these changes will be effective immediately and will be incorporated into this Policy upon notice to that effect. This notice may be posted, including but without limitation, on the home page of the Application or at the beginning of the Policy update. Your continued use of the Application following the posting of such notice will be deemed to constitute your acceptance of the updated Policy.

1. Access to the Application

Personal Information. For the purposes of this Policy, the term “personal information” means any information or combination of information relating to a natural person and allowing them to be identified.

Access to the Application. To access the Application, you must use the same credentials you use to access Manitou.

2. Consent

Consent. In order to be valid, your consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information must be specific, clear, free, and informed. Depending on the sensitivity of your personal information, your consent may be express (given orally, in writing, or electronically) or implied (including when you voluntarily provide personal information).

Generally, we obtain your consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information when you log in to the Application, except where otherwise required or permitted by law. If you use the Application, you consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information required for that use.

Your employer may also send some of your personal information needed for you to use the Application, prior to your first connection, in order to create a profile for you in the Application and thereafter to keep it up to date, to which you hereby agree. For any questions relating to the information sent by your employer via the Manitou management system, please refer directly to them and to your organization’s internal policies.

By using the Application and communicating personal information in it or in Manitou, you agree that the personal information you send us will be used in accordance with this Policy and that some of your personal information will be accessible to your employer via the Application or Manitou.

You may also withdraw or restrict any consent given at any time, subject to legal and contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. To do this, please refer directly to your employer and your organization’s internal policies. Please note, however, that if you choose to withdraw your consent, totally or partially, certain services or features of the Application will no longer be accessible.

Responsibility of users. Employers are responsible for authorizing certain employees (principals) as authorized users of the Application. Each authorized user of the Application and/or Manitou, as an employer or principal, has sole responsibility for respecting the confidentiality and privacy of the authorized users of the Application and/or Manitou under any law or regulation governing the working relationship between these authorized users. Without limiting the foregoing, all users of the Application must be of the minimum age required to give valid consent under any applicable law and regulation for the purpose of collecting their personal information. All use of the Application must be legal and lawful.

3. Collection and Use of Information

Collection. We only collect personal information necessary for you to be able to use the Application. This information is that which you and/or your employer have shared via Manitou, your user account linked to Manitou, any other personal information disclosed, in particular, information linked to an expense account, and certain additional comments or statements on your health condition. If in doubt about the legality of the sensitive information requested, you should refer to your employer or principal and to the laws applicable to your workplace.

Use. We use the information thus collected in the Application to give you access to Manitou and update your profile, time management and collection, and any other related information.

We may use your information or your usage patterns in the Application to improve its functionality and personalize your customer experience. We may also access your account and your personal information in order to assist you and to provide technical support.

We do not use your information for marketing or advertising purposes. We do not sell or lease your personal information to third parties for commercial purposes. We do not use log files, cookies, or any other tracking tool or technology. The Application does not use geolocation.

Storage. Personal information that may have been collected through your use of the Application will only be kept in Manitou and only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purposes for which it is intended. No personal information is stored directly in the Application. Your personal information will be destroyed once the purposes for which it was collected are exhausted, or otherwise, for the time provided for by applicable law.

Disclosure. Your personal information entered into the Application will be shared with persons in your organization or linked to it, who also have access to this information through Manitou. Whenever we need to disclose personal information about you, we will endeavour not to disclose more information than is required under the circumstances.

In order to provide you with the Application and all of its functionalities, you agree that we may communicate your personal information to entities affiliated with our group or to our service providers, who need to have access to your information to assure the proper operation of the Application. In such cases, your personal information remains under our control. Otherwise, if we need to provide access to your personal information or to the content that you have transmitted through the Application, this is always done only (a) if we have obtained your consent; or (b) under a legal authorization or obligation, including if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary in order to prevent imminent harm or to report suspected illegal activity.

Our communications with you. We may send you emails from Manitou during certain actions performed in the Application, in particular for confirmation or alerts.

It may be possible to activate or deactivate the “notification” function in the Application. We may send you notifications for the following reasons: reminders to fill out the timesheet, reminders to complete your expense account, reminders about an unsigned request for leave of absence, etc. You can turn these notifications on or off at any time by changing your settings in the Application; however, when the notifications are turned off, you will no longer have access to these reminder functions.

Security and protection of personal data. The personal information we collect is kept in a secure environment. We are committed to maintaining a secure online environment by integrating technological tools that meet industry standards for security and by periodically confirming the security of our systems. Our workers are required to respect the confidentiality of your information and to respect the governance rules that we have adopted in this regard. We are committed to doing business with third party service providers, whose security and confidentiality practices meet high standards for the protection of personal information, and to revalidating these standards from time to time.

However, as no mechanism offers perfect security, there is always some risk involved when using the Internet to send personal information or content.

In the event of a breach of confidentiality or security, MOMENTUM will take the necessary legal measures, and will send any notice to this effect when required.

Storage. MOMENTUM contracts with a third-party provider for the storage of all information collected, including personal information. Your personal information is kept and stored on our behalf in Canada, either in the province of Quebec or in the province of Ontario. All data is stored in servers with advanced encryption and protected against improper use and access by unauthorized persons.

Personal information protection impact analysis. When required, MOMENTUM will conduct a personal information protection impact analysis before rolling out new technologies that are highly likely to infringe upon your rights and freedoms, including your right to privacy.

Automated individual decision making. We recognize that you have the right to know whether your personal information is being processed by an automated decision-making system. Upon request, MOMENTUM will provide you with information to this effect. Unless required or permitted by law, you have the right to refuse to have a decision based exclusively on an automated system be made with respect to you, when that decision has legal consequences for you.

Abuse and unsolicited communications. We do not tolerate any abuse of the Application. If you notice that someone is abusing the Application, your account or username, or is using the Application abusively or inappropriately, please let us know.

Applicable law and jurisdiction. Subject to any law or application of public order jurisdiction, in particular under the GDPR, this Policy is governed exclusively by the laws of the province of Quebec and the federal laws applicable therein. Any dispute, remedy, or claim arising out of or in connection with this Policy, or the use of the Application, or its contents shall be resolved through good faith negotiations between the parties. If such negotiations prove to be insufficient, such dispute, remedy, or claim shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent courts in the judicial district of Momentum, province of Quebec, Canada.

Right of access, rectification, opposition, and deletion. We are committed to recognizing the right of access to (including the right to data portability) and rectification for data of persons wishing to consult, modify, receive, or even delete information concerning them. We are also committed to offering you the right to object and delete your personal information. Upon such request, we will take the necessary steps to modify or delete your information within a reasonable time. For these purposes and given that the Application is linked to Manitou, you understand and accept that this may, in particular, require the active collaboration of your employer, over which MOMENTUM does not have control. Please note, however, that some information may remain in archived/backed up copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.

To exercise these rights or to communicate with us concerning any other requests or questions, you can send a written request to our Privacy Officer, Maud Dagorn, by e-mail at:, or by mail to: Privacy Officer, 825 boul. Lebourgneuf, bureau 412, Quebec, QC, G2J 0B9.
