To whom may we release your personal information?

Loto‑Québec may communicate your personal information with your consent or when the law permits or requires it.

When required to provide you with the expected services, we may communicate it to suppliers from whom we require that they respect the same obligations in terms of protection of personal information. If such a supplier is located outside Quebec, Loto‑Québec carries out an assessment of the situation to ensure that the protection applicable there is adequate based on generally recognized principles of protection of personal information.

These suppliers collaborate with Loto‑Québec to provide services related to the processing of payments and financial transactions, the hosting of its sites and the operation of its e-commerce platforms, data analysis, marketing and advertisement.

We never sell your information to third parties.

When the law allows us to communicate your information without your consent or requires us to do so, we keep record of this communication in a register [in French only, PDF – 56 KB].


How is personal information kept?

We keep personal information for the time necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, such as to provide you the services you have requested. In some cases, laws require us to keep information for longer, such as fiscal matters.

Loto‑Québec establishes and maintains an inventory of its personal information files [in French only, PDF – 417 KB] and proceeds to their destruction when necessary. At all times, we keep and destroy personal information in accordance with the applicable law, while taking appropriate means to ensure its protection.

Personal information held by Loto‑Québec is kept and protected by robust technologies and processes to ensure its integrity and security. We put in place security measures to protect this information against theft, as well as unauthorized access or disclosure. Loto‑Québec holds numerous certifications in information security and complies with generally recognized security standards in the field.

In addition, Loto‑Québec has procedures for detecting and managing security incidents, in the event of any access attempt that could target the personal information it holds.

Right of access and rectification

You can access some of the information you provided from your account on lotoquebec.com, if you have one.
