When visiting its website, the National Aboriginal Initiative does not automatically gather your personal information, such as your name, phone number, e-mail or street address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually by contacting us via e-mail, or registering in a secure portion of the site.
All personal information you 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 reasons why it is being collected and that you have a right to access to the information.
The National Aboriginal Initiative uses software that receives and records Internet protocol addresses from computers that have connected with its website. In such instances, the National Aboriginal Initiative makes no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting its site, unless the intent was to damage the website.
The National Aboriginal Initiative does not regularly use "cookies" to track how visitors use the website. Whenever "cookies" are enabled to facilitate your transactions, the National Aboriginal Initiative will always inform you. (Note: Cookies are files that a website can place on your hard drive, without your knowledge, to monitor your use of that website.)
Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except the National Aboriginal Initiative personnel who need the information, e.g., to respond to a request. The information you provide will be shared with another government department ONLY if your inquiry relates to that department. The National Aboriginal Initiative does not use the information to create individual profiles, nor does it disclose this information to anyone outside the federal government.
