Cookies Policy

GMR Safety is particularly mindful of providing you with the best possible service, and we would like to maintain the trust you place in our company.

As such, we have adopted strong guidelines to ensure protection of your data.

It is why we want to provide you with transparent information about the ways in which we place, use, and store cookies on your device when you visit our site, and present you with options to manage or delete them.

Our partners or third-party businesses send and use other cookies, for purposes defined by those third parties, which they are responsible for processing.

This Cookie Policy is an integral part of the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.


Cookies are small text, image, or software files that may be placed on and/or read by your device when you visit our site. The word “device” when used in this Cookie Policy means, in particular, computers, smartphones, tablets, or any other device used to access the internet.

Cookies may be (i) session cookies, which means they are deleted from your device once the session and browser are closed; or (ii) persistent cookies, which means they will be saved on your device until they expire, or are deleted.

Cookies can have many purposes and, in particular, they allow us to:

  • maintain Website security and performance;
  • track the ways in which you use our Website, to improve it;
  • improve your user experience, by tailoring our Website’s content, and by showing you ads and content on our Website that are more relevant to you;
  • show you personalized advertisements based, in particular, on your browsing history and online preferences;
  • save your user preferences and settings for our Website (for example, date, time zone, other information);
  • share content on social media.

Information saved by cookies placed on your device may relate to the following, for the period of time they are stored:

–    web pages you have visited using the device;

–    advertisements you have clicked on;

–    the type of browser you use;

–    your IP address;

–    and any other information you provided while visiting our Website.

Cookies may contain personally-identifying data covered under our Privacy Policy.


The cookies we use on our Website are classified under several categories.

  • “Strictly necessary” cookies (Required)

These cookies are essential to proper functioning of the Website. They may include, for example, cookies that collect session identifiers, cookies that allow customization of a Website’s interface (for example, language selection, or display of a service), as well as some cookies used for web analytics.

  • Preference cookies (Subject to your consent)

These cookies allow customization and suggestions for Website features and content. They are used, for example, to remember preferences selected during your visit to our Website, to improve our Website, and to improve your user experience.

If you refuse these cookies, we will not be able to optimize your user experience on our Website, and some parts of the Website may not work properly.

  • Web analytics cookies (subject to consent, except under certain conditions)

These cookies allow our company, as well as our partners, to understand how users arrive at our Website, to count the number of visitors to our Website, as well as to analyze the way visitors browse the Website, or to retrace their steps.

This helps us improve the way our Website functions by ensuring, for example, that users can easily find what they are looking for.

These cookies may be exempted from consent, when they are strictly necessary for website function, in accordance with Section 3.1.

If this is not the case, they are subject to consent, in accordance with Section 3.3.


When you select the types of cookies you allow on your device, these cookies may be directly placed by us, or by one of our partners.

Practically-speaking, this means that when you allow installation of certain “third-party” cookies on your device, our partners may also access the information they contain (such as, for example, your browsing statistics when you allow third-party analysis cookies) in keeping with our personal data Privacy Policy, and those of our partners.

To see the different types of cookies we use on the Website, and configure your selections, you can go to the management tool for accessible cookies (link to module to be incorporated). You can change your preferences at any time (withdraw or renew consent).

Note that the use of cookies that are strictly necessary for proper functioning of the Website do not require your consent. This is why the “Strictly necessary cookies” option is checked off by default in our Cookie Management Tool, and is not optional.

If you refuse certain kinds of cookies, we are not able to optimize your User experience on our Website, and some parts of the site may not work correctly.

By default, we save your cookie selections on a given device for a maximum of 6 months. If you change your mind about preferences you have expressed regarding cookies, you can update your selections at any time, by viewing the accessible cookies management module found at the bottom of the page. Every 6 months we will ask you to update your selections.


If you do not want us to place cookies (with the exception of functional cookies) on your computer, you can block and or delete cookies through your browser settings.

Most browsers are configured by default to accept installation of cookies. You have the option to accept or reject all cookies, or to choose to accept some cookies based on who is issuing them.

You can also configure your browser to accept or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis prior to installation. However, certain services and features may not work correctly or be accessible if you block all, or some, cookies.

Don’t forget to configure all browsers on your various devices (tablets, smartphones, computers, etc.).

You need to configure each browser differently, to manage your cookies and selections. Configuration is described in your browser’s Help menu, which will help you learn how to change your cookie preferences.
