Privacy Statement

The Secretariat for the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) is committed to protecting your privacy in the handling of all personal information. The CFTA website does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, address, phone number or e-mail address. We would only obtain this type of information if you supplied it by sending us an e-mail. The Secretariat does not trade, sell, rent or give away your personal information to third parties.

The Secretariat employs 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 website, 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 website unless an attempt to damage the site has been detected.

The CFTA website links to other sites created and maintained by other public and/or private sector organizations. We provide these links solely for your information and convenience. When you link to an outside website, you are leaving the CFTA website and our information management policies no longer apply. You are encouraged to read the privacy policies of all websites you visit, especially if you provide any personal information.
