Privacy Policy

AMO is committed to providing our staff and visitors with websites that respect their privacy. This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices for all AMO websites. AMO websites do not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, or e-mail address. This information is only obtained if you provide it voluntarily, through contacting us via e-mail, or through an online form. Any personal information you do provide is managed according to the Ontario Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. This means that, at the point of collection, you will be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected, and that you have a right of access to the collected information. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with us.

Information Collected Automatically Via the Internet.

AMO logs http requests to our server. These logs capture computer information, navigation, and clickstream data. Some of the information collected does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your domain name or IP address, may identify you depending on the naming standards followed by your Internet service provider. You may wish to ask them about their policies and practices.

While we make no attempt to link the information captured to the identity of individuals, the information captured does identify the following:

  1. The Internet domain and IP address from which you access our website
  2. The type of browser and operating system used to access our website
  3. Screen resolution of your monitor
  4. The date and time you access our website
  5. The pages you visit; and
  6. If you linked to the AMO website from another website, the address of that website. This information is used to help us make our site more useful to our audiences by learning about the number of visitors to our site, and by monitoring traffic patterns and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about specific individuals and their visits. Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except AMO personnel who need the information for legitimate business purposes such as responding to a request.

We may combine personal information collected from you with information from other services or third parties to provide a better user experience, including customizing content for you.

Privacy and Links to Other Sites

The AMO websites may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other websites and encourage you to examine each site's privacy policy and disclaimers and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability, and correctness of material and information found.

Information Collected in E-mails and Web Forms

If you should choose to provide us with personal information-as in an e-mail or by filling out a form and submitting it to us through our website-we will use that information to respond to your message and to help us get the information you have requested. AMO does not collect personal information for commercial marketing or distribution to any private organizations. Messages sent via the Internet can be intercepted. If you are concerned about sending your personal information to us via the Internet, you can use another method such as fax or regular mail.

Transactions Where Information Enters a System of Records

Where personal information is provided that enters a system of records, it is collected in compliance with section 39 of the Ontario Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. The AMO collects, creates and maintains information for the purposes of registration and other activities directly related to its programs. Information collected is only kept for the length of time necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.

Uses

  • You may decline to provide personal information to us and/or refuse cookies in your browser, although some of our features or services may not function properly as a result.
