The College of Psychologists of Ontario's website does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, telephone number or e-mail address. We would only obtain this type of information if you supply it by sending us an e-mail, submitting a general inquiry form, or registering in a secure portion of the site.
All personal information created, held or collected by The College of Psychologists of Ontario is protected under the federal Privacy Act.
Our servers automatically log information about visits to our website in the normal course of establishing and maintaining web connections. Server logs record statistical information, such as visitors' IP addresses, type of operating systems, time and duration of visit, web pages requested, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types. These statistics are reported in aggregate form to our web and communications staff, and are used to improve our website and ensure that it provides the optimal web experience for visitors.
We do not link server log information to any other data in a way that would enable us to identify individual visitors. We may review server logs however, for security purposes, for example, to detect intrusions into our system. The possibility therefore exists that server log data, which contains visitors' IP addresses, could in instances of criminal malfeasance be used to trace and identify individuals. In such instances, raw data logs would be shared with appropriate investigative bodies authorized to investigate such breaches of security.
You may, at your discretion, contact the Office of the Privacy Commissioner if you are dissatisfied with the response you receive from our privacy contact on a privacy concern with our website.
We regularly review our information-handling practices to ensure that we are abiding by this policy. Questions or comments regarding this policy, or the administration of the Privacy Act at the College of Psychologists of Ontario may be directed to the Privacy Officer, Dr. Rick Morris, by e-mail to (email@example.com), by calling 1-416-961-8817, or writing to:
