Privacy Statement

What personal information we collect

When you visit a government website, our web server automatically collects a limited amount of information essential for the operation and security of our website. Some of this information (e.g.,browser type) does not identify who you are, while other information, such as your Internet domain name of IP address may identify you. The extent of personal identification depends, in large part, on the "naming standards" followed by your Internet Service Provider.

Some government websites may distribute small pieces of information (called "cookies") to web browsers to assist you when you return to specific areas on the site. If you have concerns about this, you can change your web browser to not accept this information or display warning messages.

When you voluntarily send us electronic mail or complete an electronic form that includes identifying information about you, we will keep a record of this information so that we can respond to you.

How we protect and use the personal information that we collect

Collection, use, disclosure and retention of information must comply with provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Document Disposal Act. Collected personal information will only be used by authorized government staff to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally collected or for a use consistent with that purpose. We do not disclose your information to other public bodies or individuals except as authorized by law. We keep the information only for the length of time necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected.

A government website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such websites.
