We, or other advertisers, may also use this information to display ads intended specifically for you. Targeted ads may involve the use of information taken from the website and information that we (or our advertisers working on our behalf) have received from other entities. This excludes information such as your name or contact details. When our ads are displayed to you using your information, this information is used as needed, based on our legitimate business interests with regard to you.

We also use Google Analytics services to have our website analyzed. The information gathered when performing these services is depersonalized, so users cannot be identified. This information is mainly used to evaluate your use of our website, including the number of visits, pages viewed and time spent on these pages, the source, as well as other statistics that would be useful for ongoing improvement of our website.

The data collected will enable us to analyze how our website is used and accessed, so we can improve its various functions and optimize it to better meet our users’ needs.

We may also collect optional information that will help us customize your experience.

As a general rule, we use the order information we collect to process any order received. We also use this order information for the following purposes:

Your personal information is stored in protected locations, on servers controlled by Culture Trois-Rivières’ service providers, located in their offices within Canada.

Our service providers may be located outside of your territory and have to disclose your personal information where required by the laws in their jurisdiction, including the U.S. and Belgium. Depending on circumstances, we have taken all reasonable steps to ensure that your information will not be used for purposes not relevant to the subject of your file or disclosed to service providers without your consent, except where authorized by law.


We have taken steps to protect the personal information in our custody and under our control. We therefore do not allow access to personal information, except to our authorized employees and service providers who need this information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We have put into place reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect ourselves against unauthorized access to, use of, changes to and disclosure of personal information in our custody and under our control.

Notwithstanding the above, keep in mind that, unfortunately, no transmission of data online can be deemed absolutely secure. Culture Trois-Rivières therefore does not declare or guarantee, in any way, that personal information will not be lost, misused or changed, and we do not assume any responsibility for the personal information you send us, nor for the use or misuse of personal information by you or any third parties.

We will only retain your personal information for the time required to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, in compliance with our personal information retention, destruction and anonymization procedures.

In order to maximize the security of your personal data, a passkey (emailed to you every time you log in) must be used to access your account on the TUXEDO ticketing software used by Culture Trois-Rivières.  To access your online account on the EMISYS ticketing system used by Boréalis and Manoir Boucher de Niverville, you will need a username and password, which you will set up when you create your account. You will be responsible for keeping this login information confidential. We encourage you to choose a strong password and to never share your login information with anyone. We suggest that you change your password regularly.


Here are some recommendations to ensure your online purchases are secure.

  • If you are using a public computer, always clear your browser’s cache and log out when finished.
  • Be wary of unsolicited emails and phone calls.

Also, Culture Trois-Rivières will never contact you to ask for information about your credit card number or bank account number. This information is only sent to Culture Trois-Rivières when you complete a transaction. If you receive a suspicious email with a link for updating your account information, do not click on this link. Access your account directly by going to If a stranger contacts you, sends you an unsolicited email or asks you to confirm or provide your password, personal information or banking details, ignore this request.


We will keep all information collected for as long as it is needed to meet the goals for which it was gathered, or for any other essential purposes, such as meeting legal obligations. We will destroy this data at the end of that period or if you decide to withdraw your consent. Once your data has been deleted, you will receive confirmation – if you ask for it – that your request has been handled.


Under data protection legislation, you have certain rights related to your information. Here are some of the actions you can take. You may:

  1. Ask us to allow you access to your data so you can check it. Note, however, that we reserve the right to ask you for additional information to confirm your identity.
  2. Ask us to change or correct your data.
  3. Ask us to delete personal data in our possession, unless we are required to keep it so we can meet our legal obligations, for example.
  4. Object to your data being processed, unless we have legitimate reasons that take precedence over your rights or interests, or if we need to continue handling this data in order to establish, bring or defend ourselves against a legal claim.
  5. Ask us to limit the processing of your data if it is incorrect, if you believe our doing so is illegal or if it is no longer needed, but we have to keep it for legal purposes.
  6. Ask us to provide your data and personal information in an accessible format.
  7. Withdraw your consent to the handling of your personal data.
  8. File a complaint with the authorities with jurisdiction if you believe that, by processing your data, we are in breach of applicable data protection legislation.
