Who we are

Informed Consent Canada
Our website address is: https://www.informedconsent.ca.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

As operators of the website InformedConsent.ca, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Informed Consent Canada’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, Informed Consent Canada may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Informed Consent Canada also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Informed Consent Canada does not use such information to identify its visitors and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to our website choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who want to receive periodic email bulletins from Informed Consent Canada to provide their name and email address to our sign up page. TheNewsLetter Plugin has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control. Their privacy policy can be found at www.thenewsletterplugin.com

Those who engage in transactions with Informed Consent Canada – by registering as a member for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. All financial payments and donations are processed through our website by Paypal and at events by Square, Inc. In each case, Informed Consent Canada collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Informed Consent Canada. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture (if you’ve added one) is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Using contact forms requires the collection of a name and e-mail address.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use JetPack analytics to understand how our visitors use our site, their general location, and how they found us. You can view their privacy policy at https://automattic.com/privacy/

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Selling, Trading, Transfering of Data

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.
