Privacy Policy

Because of the nature of its operations, Photo CDM is called upon to collect information on its clients and other users of its online software, Web site and of other services it offers. Photo CDM stores this information according to the Privacy Policy (the ‘Policy’) herein. The Policy applies to (i) information gathered by Photo CDM on its own clients (the ‘Clients’), (ii) information contained in distribution lists belonging to Photo CDM clients and stored in Photo CDM servers (the ‘Third Parties’), notwithstanding certain conditions hereafter mentioned and as applicable, and (iii) information on other users of the online software, Web site and other services offered by Photo CDM (the ‘Users’). Photo CDM commits to the following principles on which the Policy is based.


Photo CDM accepts responsibility for the management of information with respect to its Clients, Third Parties and Users and has accordingly designated one or more persons to oversee Policy compliance.

Intended Use of Personal Data

Photo CDM may collect the following data on Clients or Users for the purposes mentioned here under:

  • Registration

In order to access a Photo CDM software, a Client must fill a registration form and provide details on how to reach him/her (name, title, address, email address and name, phone number, fax number and Web site URL of the company he/she works for). This information is used by Photo CDM to contact the Client to discuss the applications in which he/she is interested. The Client may choose to provide information of a demographic nature (such as gender) and marketing information (such as size and activities of the company, how he/she learned about Photo CDM, etc.). This information is used solely for the purposes of gaining a better understanding of Client profiles and improving services.

  • Billing

In addition to information provided on how to be reached, as explained in the Registration section, Clients must also provide details for billing purposes (name and address of credit card holder, number and expiry date of credit card). This information is used for billing and to control access to online applications. Should Cantrex experience problems approving an order, this information would serve to contact the Client.

  • Cookies

A ‘cookie’ is a data file containing information on a Client or a User stored on the Client’s or User’s hard drive. Use of ‘cookies’ does not give access to information identifying a person. A ‘cookie’ cannot read data on a hard drive nor other ‘cookies’ created by other sites. Once your browser is closed, the ‘cookie’ is deactivated. For example, by storing a ‘cookie’ on a User’s hard drive, the system can recall the User’s password, thus enabling him/her to save time when accessing the applications. A User who declines to use the ‘cookie’, which he/she is entirely free to do, can still access our applications but must enter his/her password every time information is requested. ‘Cookies’ also enable Photo CDM to focus on the areas of interest of visitors to its Web site.
