This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, or registering in a secure portion of the site.
All personal information you do provide is protected under the federal Privacy Act. This means that, at the point of collection, you will be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected and that you have a right of access to the information. Some institutions within the Government of Canada use software that receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of computers that have connected with their web sites. In such instances, institutions make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting Government of Canada sites.

Whenever we enable "cookies" to facilitate your transactions, we will first inform you. (Note: Cookies are files that a web site can place on your hard drive, without your knowledge, to monitor your use of that site.)
Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except Government of Canada personnel who need the information, e.g., to respond to a request. The information you give us will be shared with another government department ONLY if your inquiry relates to that department. We do not use the information to create individual profiles, nor do we disclose this information to anyone outside the federal government.
