The Federal Court of Appeal is committed to respecting the privacy of visitors to this Web site:

  • The Web site does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, or e-mail address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us by e-mail or registering in a secure portion of the site.
  • The Web site may employ software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Such software receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has connected with our Web site, 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 site unless an attempt to damage the site or an improper use of electronic networks has been detected in association with an IP address.
  • The Web site does not normally use "cookies" to track how visitors use its Web site or to identify sites previously visited. The system will notify you before any cookies are used so that you may refuse them. (Note: A "cookie" is a file that may be placed on your hard drive without your knowledge by a Web site to allow it to monitor your use of the site.)
  • Visitor information is used solely in order to respond to your request or to ensure the security of this system. The information you provide will be shared with a government department / organization only if your inquiry relates to that entity. We do not use the information to establish individual profiles, nor do we disclose this information to anyone outside the federal government.
