Privacy Notice

The Government of Canada and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) are committed to providing visitors with web sites that respect their privacy. This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices on the CHRT's web site.

In an effort to establish a fair balance between public access to its decisions and the individual's right to privacy, the CHRT has taken measures to prevent Internet searching of full-text versions of decisions posted on our website. This was done by applying instructions using the "web robot exclusion protocols", which are recognized by Internet search engines (e.g., Google and Yahoo).
We cannot guarantee that the technological measures taken will always be respected or free of mistakes or malfunctions. Please address your questions to the webmaster using our Feedback Form.

The CHRT's 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.

All personal information created, held or collected by this department is protected under the federal Privacy Act. This means that at any point of collection you will be asked for consent to collect your information, and you will be informed of the purpose for which it is being collected and how to exercise your right of access to that information.

The CHRT does not normally use "cookies" to track how our visitors use this site or to determine sites previously visited. The system will notify you before any cookies are used so that you may refuse them. (A "cookie" is a file that may be placed on your hard drive without your knowledge by a web site to allow it to monitor your use of the site.)

Information on individual visitors is used by CHRT employees who need to know the information in order to respond to your request. We only share the information you give us with another government department if your inquiry relates to that department. We do not use the information to create individual profiles, nor do we disclose this information to anyone outside the federal government.

Questions or comments regarding this policy, or the administration of the Privacy Act in the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal may be directed to the Registry of the Tribunal using our Feedback Form. If you are not satisfied with our response to your privacy concern, you may wish to contact the Office of the Privacy Commissioner.
