The parliamentary institutions are committed to providing visitors with Web sites that respect their privacy.
The Parliament of Canada Web site does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or e-mail address. We would only obtain this type of information if you supply it by sending us an e-mail or registering in a secure portion of the site, in which case any personal information submitted there will be used solely for the purpose for which it was submitted.
The parliamentary institutions occasionally use "cookies" to track how our visitors use the site or to determine sites previously visited. The cookies we use do not allow us to identify individuals. They are compiled into statistical information on traffic patterns and are used to assess site efficiency. Depending on your computer's preferences and settings, your system may notify you before any cookies are used.
