Privacy Policy

Routine Access Policy

The Department of Business has a Routine Access Policy that provides an opportunity to obtain access to certain series of records to which FOIPOP applies without a formal application under the Act. These records series are described in the schedule to the policy. The Routine Access Policy is administered by the Information Access and Privacy Officer.

Google Analytics Notification

Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time that the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before and what site referred the visitor to the web page.

Use of IP address

Every computer and device connected to the Internet is assigned a unique number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. Since these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country, region and city from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. Google Analytics collects the IP address of website visitors in order to provide website owners with a sense of where in the world their visitors come from.

Use of personal information

Personal information is information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information, or other data, which can be reasonably linked to such information. The Google Analytics Terms of Service, which all Analytics customers must adhere to, prohibits the tracking or collection of this information using Google Analytics or associating personal information with web analytics information.

For this reason, any page that collects personally identifiable information is not being tracked by Google Analytics.

Browser Opt-out

To provide website visitors with more choice about how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google developed the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. The add-on communicates with the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) to indicate that information about the website visit should not be sent to Google Analytics. The Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to the website itself or to other web analytics services.

For more information on the opt-out options, click here. A browser add-on is available to prevent users data from being sent to Google Analytics. This is available for Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 – 10, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera.
