HOW DO WE MANAGE PRIVACY OF CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS OLD

BRP’s websites, applications, web apps, products, and services are not targeted to or intended for use by children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16.

If you think we have received personal information from children under the age of 16, please contact us as described in the HOW TO CONTACT US section at the beginning of this Policy.

YOUR RIGHTS OVER YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

The rights you have depend on your country of residence and on the laws or regulations that apply to your situation, but in most cases, you have the right to:

  • Request that we confirm if we hold personal information about you and give you access to it;
  • Rectify your personal information when inaccurate or no longer up to date;
  • Ask a question about how we handle your personal information;
  • Make a complaint in relation with our handling of your personal information;
  • Ask us to no longer send you our commercial communications.

Please read the dedicated section in the COUNTRY-SPECIFIC ADDITIONAL PRIVACY POLICIES to know more about other privacy rights you may have.


Commercial Communications

We use your contact information to communicate with you by email or other means of electronic communication, such as text messages or phone. You can always ask us to stop sending you commercial communications. The simplest way to do so is to withdraw your consent, which you can do at any time, either by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of any newsletter or commercial communication or by contacting our Privacy Officer as described in the HOW TO CONTACT US section at the beginning of this Policy.

However, when you withdraw your consent from receiving commercial communications from BRP, you may continue to receive commercial communications from our dealerships and distributors, who have their own independent consent management system. The reverse is also true; you may continue to receive commercial communications from us when you unsubscribe only to those sent by our dealerships and distributors.


Other Rights Specific to the Use of Certain BRP Websites or Mobile Applications

When you use certain of our mobile applications or websites, depending on their functionalities, you can:

  • Modify your profile to ensure that only certain information appears to other users;
  • Decide not to provide some of the information requested (it may limit some of the uses and functionalities available to you);
  • Deactivate or block the sharing of your location when you use the website or mobile application, including when participating in group riding events;
  • Modify your location settings and the location permissions in your device settings, to ensure that your location is only shared by your device to the application during your utilization of the application. If you further limit access to location information, this may prevent you from using some or all of the functionalities of the website or application;
  • Accept or refuse to receive push notifications relating to the website or mobile application, which are sent to alert you of new information;
  • Delete the mobile application at any time or delete your account. If you do so, it will result in the deletion of certain information, such as your planned and completed rides, riding statistics, points of interest, saved locations and friends where applicable.


How You Can Exercise Your Rights

If you wish to exercise any rights listed above or in the dedicated section in the COUNTRY-SPECIFIC ADDITIONAL PRIVACY POLICIES, you may make a request by contacting our Privacy Officer as described in the HOW TO CONTACT US section at the beginning of this Policy. BRP may require relevant information or details in order to properly authenticate you. Once available, you will also be able to directly submit your privacy requests online through our Online Privacy Rights Portal (upcoming).

If you want to exercise a right specific to the use of certain BRP websites or mobile applications, you can do so by following the procedure listed in the terms and conditions of the website or mobile application you are using.

Please note that applicable laws may restrict or limit your rights, which means that in some situations as permitted by applicable laws, we are entitled to deny your request. In any case we will explain to you the reason why we cannot fulfill your request as permitted by law.

Only you or an authorized representative may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may be required to submit proof of your identity to make a privacy right request and we may not be able to comply with your request if we are unable to confirm your identity or to connect the information you submit in your request with personal information in our possession.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.


Complaint Resolution

We are committed to working with you to resolve any concern you may have about our use of your personal information or to obtain a fair resolution to any complaint. If, however, you believe that we have not been able to assist with your complaint or concern, you may have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority in your country or supervisory authority. Please refer to the dedicated section in the COUNTRY-SPECIFIC ADDITIONAL PRIVACY POLICIES for more details.


CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy will be modified from time to time. In this case, we will keep you informed by updating the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy or by any other means of communication where appropriate. We recommend that you check occasionally this website to inform yourself of any changes.
