The material on this site is owned by the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) and all intellectual property rights therein are held by SAAQ. Unless indicated otherwise, such rights extend to all documents, data, compilations and other works disseminated on this site. SAAQ trademarks are also protected.

No commercial use may be made of the material without prior authorization by SAAQ.

Accuracy and reliability of information
The SAAQ warrants the accuracy and reliability of information at the posting time but not subsequent thereto and accepts no liability whatsoever for the accuracy of any document, data or other material after it has been altered or modified in any manner, after downloading or otherwise. Moreover, in the event of a discrepancy between an official text and the content of this site, the official text prevails.

Intellectual property rights
The SAAQ holds exclusive intellectual property rights over the documents it produces and publishes, including all administrative texts and official texts (statutes, regulations by-laws, judgments and so on), whether produced by SAAQ employees, a government department, a public agency or a third party having assigned the rights or granted a user licence to the SAAQ. Intellectual property rights include copyrights, trademarks and patents.

The information and compilations contained in the SAAQ site are protected by copyright in the same manner as multimedia, literary, musical and artistic works.

Unless otherwise indicated and subject to exceptions provided by statute, no material that is subject to intellectual property rights may be used without the appropriate authorizations, licences, permissions or grant of interest from or by the holder of the rights. This applies notably to reproduction or storage for any purpose other than those strictly permitted.

Thus, anybody planning or wishing, for marketing purposes, to reproduce, store, download, translate or publicly show sounds or images or to send, by means of telecommunication, any document, data or other contents from this site must obtain advance authorization from the SAAQ. This authorization may be obtained from the SAAQ.

Moreover, the removal of the name of SAAQ from the material used or any modification of the contents by addition, deletion or otherwise constitutes an infringement of the moral rights of the SAAQ.
