Protecting the confidentiality of personal information is of the utmost concern to SOM. SOM gathers and handles, on a daily basis, a large amount of personal information supplied by individuals or companies. In order to guarantee the confidentiality of this data, SOM has adopted a strict policy in this area.

SOM is committed to respecting and protecting the information that it receives from its clients, Web site users and survey respondents.

Commitment to our clients

The information SOM gathers on behalf of its clients is treated as confidential and used exclusively within the context of its mandate. SOM commits to gathering no data for its own purposes or from which it could profit.

Commitment to users of our Web site

Each year, SOM interviews hundreds of thousands of people who accept to participate in its surveys and studies. The information gathered is treated in strict confidence.
