We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Information Collection and Use
While using our site, we may ask you to provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”), which may be used to contact or identify you. PII is defined as any information that permits identification of the individual to whom the information applies, by either direct or indirect means. This might include your name, telephone number, or email address—or less obvious identifiers like geographic location, birth date, or gender, used in combination with other data elements.
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”).
This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address,
browser type, browser version, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, and other relevant statistics. In addition, we may sometimes use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor, and analyze Log Data.
We may use your PII to contact you with newsletters, marketing, promotional materials, or other information that improves your experience on our site. We will never send you communications without your consent. The Faculty recognizes the harmful effects of spam and complies with Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). If you receive communications by error, you will always have the option to unsubscribe. To learn more about how we can fight spam together please visit the Government of Canada’s website: https://fightspam.gc.ca/eic/site/030.nsf/eng/00011.html
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier.
Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our site.
We have put in place physical electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online. The Faculty applies security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, such as retaining information in secure facilities and making personal information accessible only to authorized employees on a need-to-know basis. Be advised that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Personally Identifiable Information
This site contains forms which permit users to share PII. The Faculty will not disclose personal information that you provide on its site to any third parties except:
- to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, warrant, subpoena or court order, and/or
- if you are reporting an adverse event/side effect, in which case the Faculty may be required to disclose such information to bodies such as, but not limited to, Canadian and/or international regulatory authorities.
Please note that any of these disclosures may involve the storage or processing of personal information outside of Canada and may therefore be subject to different privacy laws than those applicable in Canada, including laws that require the disclosure of PII to governmental authorities under circumstances that are different than those that apply in Canada.
Protection of Children Online
The Faculty considers the protection of children’s privacy, especially online, to be of the utmost importance. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children, nor do we allow them to become registered users of, or to request information through, our site or help-seeking information lines.
Third Party Social Media
The Faculty uses social media to maintain a presence on the web. Social media accounts are not hosted on University servers. Users who choose to interact with us via social media should be aware of all privacy policies for social media services they use.
