The Canadian Academy of Endodontics (also known as the CAE or the Academie Canadienne D’endodontie) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for our website.
During a visit to our website, www.caendo.ca, your privacy is respected. We do not collect personal information about you unless you send us an e-mail, submit a Contact Form, or log into the Member’s Area / Online Roster, in which case you provide your name and information voluntarily. This information is protected under the federal privacy act.
Visitors’ personal information received via e-mail or a Contact Form is provided only to officers and directors of the CAE or to the CAE webmaster, who require this information to respond to inquiries. We do not use this information for any other purpose.
Information submitted via the Member’s Area is made available to other CAE members through the password protected online roster (located at www.caendo.ca/roster/). To remove your information from the roster and the e-mail mailing list, please contact the CAE webmaster by calling 905-655-0663 or sending an e-mail to [email protected].
The Canadian Academy of Endodontics will occasionally contact members via the e-mail address provided in the online roster. To opt-out of these messages please contact the CAE webmaster by sending an e-mail to [email protected] or calling 866-232-7456.
We cannot guarantee the security of information sent via e-mail, and do not recommend you send sensitive personal information (such as credit card or confidential medical history) by e-mail at this time.
In the normal course of establishing and maintaining web connections, our web servers automatically log information about visits to our website. This includes statistical information such as a visitors’ IP address, type of operating system, time and duration of visit, web pages requested, and the domain name of the server you are visiting from. These statistics are made available to our website management team (including the CAE webmaster and CAE officers and directors) to ensure our website provides the optimal experience for visitors.
The server log information collected does not enable us to identify visitors. However, we may review server logs for security purposes (i.e. – detect intrusions into our network). The possibility therefore exists that server log data, which contains a visitors’ IP address, could in instances of criminal malfeasance be used to trace and identify individuals. In these cases, raw data logs would be shared with the appropriate investigative body. Under normal circumstances logs are retained for a maximum of 365 days.
When a web site visitor signs in to the Member’s Area / Online Roster we may place a small data file, called a cookie, in the browser file of your computer’s hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with our web site. Most browsers automatically accept these cookies, however you can usually change your browser settings to prevent the acceptance of cookies.
The Canadian Academy of Endodontics utilizes an outside organization to develop and maintain its web site. By contacting the CAE webmaster.
