Your Privacy and the Internet

The nature of the Internet is such that Web servers automatically collect certain information about a visit to a website, including the visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISP) to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, does not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, such as with the co-operation of an ISP for example, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. For this reason, the Government of Canada considers the IP address to be personal information, particularly when combined with other data automatically collected when visitor requests a Web page such as the page or pages visited, date and time of the visit.

Unless otherwise noted, CII does not automatically gather any specific information from you, such as your name, telephone number or email address. CII would obtain this type of information only if you supply it to us, for example, by email or by filling in a contact form, or subscribing to a service such as News Letters.

Examples of digital markers are “cookies” or HTML5 web storage. Some examples of what digital markers do are as follows:
