Privacy Statement

The Government of Nunavut is committed to providing visitors with web sites that respect their privacy. This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices on Government of Nunavut web sites.

  • Government of Nunavut web sites do not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or e-mail address. The Government of Nunavut would only obtain this type of information if you supply it by sending an email or registering in a secure portion of the site.
  • All personal information created, held or collected by this department is protected under the Nunavut Access to Information and Protection of 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 Government of Nunavut uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. This software receives and records the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted our web site, the date and time of the visit and the pages visited. We make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting our site unless an attempt to damage the site has been detected.
  • The Government of Nunavut does not normally use cookies to track how our visitors use this site or to determine sites previously visited. If cookies are in use and you have your cookies notification option activated on your browser 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.)
  • Government of Nunavut employees who need to know the information in order to respond to your request or to ensure the security of this system may use information on individual visitors when provided. The information you give us is only shared with another government department if your inquiry relates to that department. The information is not used to create individual profiles, nor is this information disclosed to anyone outside the Government of Nunavut.
