Privacy Policy

Home - Privacy Policy

The Internet contains a wealth of information. It may contain personal details about you that you do not want everyone to know. For example, your real name, street address, phone number or e-mail address that you provide us so that we can respond to your request for information or service.

The College of Alberta Dental Assistants is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its user community. The intent of this privacy policy is to clarify what information may be obtained about users of the College of Alberta Dental Assistants's Web site, how this information is used and our disclosure practices. Please note that this information may be updated at any time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our Web site. We will post those changes here as they occur, so you will always be aware of our current policies. This privacy policy applies only to the College of Alberta Dental Assistants's Web site and not to other community, company or organization sites to which we provide links.

When you voluntarily send us electronic mail or complete an electronic form that includes identifying information about you, we will keep a record of this information so that we can respond to you. Collected personal information will only be used by authorized College of Alberta Dental Assistants staff to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally collected or for a use consistent with that purpose. However, be assured that the Site Owner will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent or as authorized by law.

Site Usage Information

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and an IP (Internet Protocol) address, containing a set of numbers. This information reveals nothing personal about the visitor.

When a visitor requests a page from within the College of Alberta Dental Assistants's Web site, our Web servers automatically recognize that computers' IP address and domain name. Such data is used in the aggregate to help determine general usage patterns and fine tune layout patterns to ensure our site is as "User Friendly" as possible. This information is not collected or evaluated for individuals and our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses.

The Site Owner will share aggregate information about our users; for example, we will say that X number of users visited our transit pages in the past month or X% of users were searching for information about snow removal services.

What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you're at our site. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard -- you will find them at most major Web sites.

By showing how and when users use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Improvements and updates to the site will be based on data collected as to total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. This data will be used to customize content to enhance and provide services better tailored to our customers needs.

Users should be aware that when you are on our Web site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other Web sites. Please check with those sites to determine their privacy policy.

Security

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. We exercise due care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Once we receive your transmission, we exercise care and due diligence in managing, transmitting and securing your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, The Site Owner can not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.

Remember to sign out and close your browser window when you have finished your transmission. We strongly encourage you not to divulge your password to anyone. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
