Privacy Statement

This privacy statement describes the information collected on the RHRA's website (the "Website") and the steps taken to ensure such information is protected and secure. You are encouraged to read this statement before using the Website.

The RHRA only gathers aggregate or anonymous information through its Website that does not personally identify individuals.

Aggregate or Anonymous Information. When you visit and interact with the Website, the RHRA and third parties with whom the RHRA has contracted to provide services to the RHRA, may collect anonymous information from two sources: server log files and "pixel tags". The RHRA analyzes anonymous or aggregate information in order to enhance website security, track the popularity of certain pages of the Website, review traffic levels on the Website and other usage data, all of which helps the RHRA to provide content tailored to your interests, improve the Website and related services and to otherwise enhance your experience on the Website. The RHRA may share anonymous or aggregate information with affiliated entities and other third parties.

Server Log Files. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is an identifying number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Website, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. The RHRA uses the IP addresses of all visitors to calculate Website usage levels, to help diagnose problems with the Website's servers, and to administer the Website. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is carried out automatically by many web sites. The RHRA does not link IP addresses to any identifiable information in its databases unless required by law to do so.

Pixel Tags. The Website may use so-called "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear GIFs" or similar means (collectively, "pixel tags") to compile aggregate statistics about Website usage and response rates. Pixel tags allow the RHRA to count users who have visited certain pages of the Website, to deliver branded services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, pixel tags can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.

Personal Information. The Website does not directly collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to the RHRA – for example, when you send an email message to info@rhra.ca, you may provide personal information. If you send an unencrypted email message to the RHRA, you should be aware of the inherent risks of interception when communicating with others online.

The RHRA reserves the right to change this statement without prior notice. Any changes to this statement will become effective upon posting of the revised statement on this Website.
