Collection of Information

When you visit MyWorkQuest, our web server automatically collects a limited amount of standard information essential to the operation and evaluation of the site. This information is not used to identify individuals who come to the site. None of this information is disclosed to other public bodies or individuals. This information includes:

  • the page from which you arrived
  • the date and time of your page request
  • the IP address your computer is using to receive information
  • the type and version of your browser
  • the name and size of the file you request.

This information helps us assess our information services and is used only for this purpose. It is collected in compliance with section 33(c) of the FOIP Act. This information is not used to identify individuals who come to the web site. None of this information is disclosed to third parties including other public bodies, private organizations or persons ("Third Party").

If you choose to provide your personal information in an email to someone else, or by filling out a form with your personal information included and submitting it through our website, MyWorkQuest will use that information to respond to your message and to help provide you with the information you have requested. Your personal information will not be used for any purpose other than to respond to you. We will only share the information you provide with another government ministry if your inquiry relates to that ministry.

The personal information you submit is secure once it reaches the government server. In transit between your computer and the server, however, it may not be secure. If you would prefer to raise a comment or question in person, please see Contact Information.
