Types of Information We Collect

Non-Personal Information

Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not directly associated with a specific personal identity. We may collect and analyse non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the Parliament website. This is explained below.


Aggregate Information

The Parliament may gather aggregate information, which refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. For example, when you request a page from our site, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and for purposes of system administration and design improvements.


Log Files

Every time you request or download a file from the website, such as an annual report or another House document, the Parliament may store data about these events and your IP address in a log file. The Parliament may use this information to analyse trends, administer the website and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.



Our site may use a feature of your browser to set a “cookie” on your computer. Cookies are small packets of information that a web site’s computer stores on your computer. The Parliament website can then read the cookies whenever you visit our site. We may use cookies in a number of ways, such as to save your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, to deliver content specific to your interests and to track the pages you’ve visited. These cookies allow us to use the information we collect to customise your experience so that your visit to our site is as relevant and as valuable to you as possible.


Most browser software can be set up to deal with cookies. You may modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies. You have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of our website may not work properly, and you may be unable to use those of the Parliament services that require registration in order to participate, or you will have to re-register each time you visit our site. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. We do not link non-personal information from cookies to personally identifiable information without your permission.


Web Beacons

The Parliament website may use web beacons to collect non-personal information about your use of our web site and the web sites of selected sponsors or members, your use of special promotions or newsletters, and other activities. The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our web site and for what purposes these actions are being taken. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our website. The Operators do not link non-personal information from web beacons to personally identifiable information without your permission.


Personal Information

Personal information is information that is associated with your name or personal identity. The Parliament uses personal information to better understand your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. On some of the Parliament web pages, whether now or in future enhanced versions of the site, you may be able to request information, subscribe to mailing lists, participate in online discussions, collaborate on documents, provide feedback, submit information into registries, register for events, apply for membership, or join technical committees or working groups. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs and passwords. At this time (October 2023), the only personal information that can be submitted is your first name, last name, and email address via our contact forms, or your email address in our newsletter sign-up field.

Information you provide on our newsletter sign-up field may be automatically added to our mailing lists. Likewise, information you include in our contact forms will be used by Parliament staff to contact you in response to your query. By providing us with your personal information on the newsletter subscription field, and/or contact forms, you expressly consent to our storing, processing, and using your information for these purposes.


How We Use Your Information

We may use non-personal data that is aggregated for reporting about the Parliament website usability, performance, and effectiveness. It may be used to improve the experience, usability, and content of the site.


Information Sharing

The Parliament does not sell, rent, or lease any individual’s personal information or lists of email addresses to any third party for marketing purposes, and we take commercially reasonable steps to maintain the security of this information. However, the Parliament reserves the right to supply any such information to any organisation to which it may make any transfer in order to enable a third party to continue part or all of its mission. For example, the Parliament may use newsletter service providers to send email newsletters; therefore, when signing up for email newsletters via the Parliament’s website, you agree that your email address and name will be transferred to the third party in order to effectively carry out the email newsletter subscription. We also reserve the right to release personal information to protect our systems or business, when we reasonably believe you to be in violation of our Terms of Use or if we reasonably believe you to have initiated or participated in any illegal activity. In addition, please be aware that in certain circumstances, the Parliament may be obligated to release your personal information pursuant to a judicial order, a government request, a request from the Auditor General, a Freedom of Information Act request or as otherwise required by law.



The Parliament makes every effort to protect the personal information of users of the website by using firewalls and other security measures on its servers. No server, however, is 100% secure, and you should take this into account when submitting personal or confidential information about yourself on any website, including this one. The Parliament assumes no liability for the interception, alteration, or misuse of the information you provide. You alone are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please use care when you access this website and provide personal information.


The Parliament deeply respects the privacy and security of users who seek information about the Parliament, its Members, staff, documents, history, and all other aspects of the legislative body and its Commission.
