Your privacy and our website
What personal information do we collect?
Web servers automatically collect certain information about a visit to a website, including the visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISP) to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, may not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. For this reason, we consider the IP address to be personal information, particularly when combined with other data automatically collected when a visitor requests a web page. This information can include the name of the page you visited and the date and time of your visit.
Unless otherwise noted, we do not automatically gather any specific personal information from you. The only way we would get this information is if you give it to us, for example, via one of our online forms. We have forms on our site to help you interact with our office – for example, to submit an enquiry, to request a quote, or to place an online order. We only ask for the information that we need to address your request.
Why we collect your personal information
In the course of providing online services to the public through our website, we collect personal information for certain purposes. We use digital markers and web analytics to improve our site. We offer a number of online tools, such as forms for enquiries, to deliver our services. We also use certain software to ensure the security of our website. These uses are described in more detail in the sections below.
If you send us an email or complete an online form, we may use your personal information to respond to you. Personal information from emails or completed forms is collected according to the Privacy Act.
Digital markers (including cookies)
A digital marker is a small file placed on your computer by a web site that you visit. They are stored there so that the web server can remember certain pieces of information about you. This information is used by the web server during the same or another visit to the website. Examples of digital markers are “cookies“. They are often used in the collection of web analytics, to store your preferences (for example: language or location), and to manage your session if you are logged in.
Web analytics is the collection, analysis, measurement, and reporting of data about web traffic and visits. This data is used to improve our website.
Protecting the security of our website
We use software programs to monitor network traffic and identify unauthorized attempts to change information, or damage our systems. This software receives and records the IP address of the computer that has contacted our website, the date and time of the visit and the pages visited.
Who sees your personal information
In cases where services are provided by third parties such as social media platforms or mobile applications, IP addresses may be recorded by their web servers.
How we protect your personal information
Emails and other electronic methods used to communicate with us are not secure unless it specifically says so. It is not recommended that you send sensitive personal information, such as your Social Insurance Number or your date of birth, through non-secure electronic means.
