CAP Privacy Information Practices

The CAP is concerned with protecting your personal information and our stakeholders (by stakeholders we mean all the provinces) handling of personal information is governed by provincial privacy laws  as well as regulations and policies of each Canadian province.

By using CAP’s website and online services, you accept the terms of this Privacy Statement. You also accept the use of Google Analytics.

If you do not wish to use the internet to provide personal information to CAP for an online service, you may be able to contact the organization by phone or mail depending on who you are trying to reach.

What CAP collects online

Personal information means recorded information about an identifiable individual. It includes information such as your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, and other information that identifies you.

General information (for example, type of web browser you use and what website pages you visit) is not considered personal information.

If you use CAP’s website to submit correspondence to Premiers or other elected representatives, CAP will not use the information provided to contact you and will not retain said information in a database for future use. 

Information about you

The CAP collects some information automatically when you visit our website.

IP Addresses

The CAP considers the IP address to be personal information.

IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to all devices used to access the internet. Web servers record the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, does not identify an individual. In certain circumstances, it could be used, together with other information available to CAP, to identify an individual using the site. For example, an ISP may co-operate with government in a criminal investigation by providing extra information to use for this purpose.

Web Server Logs

When you access the CAP website, CAP collects some information about your internet connection and your browsing experience in their logs. This includes the IP address of your internet connection and information about what you access on the websites.

CAP uses this information only to fulfill your requests. CAP does not attempt to use this information to identify individuals visiting the website, unless it detects an attempt to damage or violate the site, or if a law enforcement investigation requires it. CAP protects and restricts access to this information.

How cookies are used

CAP websites use cookies, which are small pieces of data stored on your computer that allows CAP  to remember certain pieces of information about your visit.

Cookies don’t allow CAP to identify individuals. You may adjust your browser settings to reject cookies, if you choose. However, it may affect your experience when you interact with government online.

Google Analytics

The CAP uses Google Analytics to help CAP understand how you use the CAP website. This helps CAP improve online services and make the website more useful.

Google Analytics stores information about:

  • the pages you visit
  • how long you spend on each web page
  • how you got to the website
