The CPA Canada site is maintained by The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) and The Society of Management Accountants of Canada (CMA Canada).
Our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information is regulated by the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (Canada), or similar privacy legislation applicable in your province, as amended from time to time. You can find more information about your privacy rights at the website of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC).
Personal and non-personal information
You can visit the CPACanada.ca website without revealing who you are or sharing any personal information. Throughout the website we collect non-personal information (IP addresses, page accesses, number of visitors to the site, etc.), which is used to analyze site usage. If you wish to use the discussion forum, you must register using a username that you select yourself and your email address. This information is collected so you can participate in the forum and leave your own commentary. The user name posted will not reveal your email address, which is kept confidential.
Do we disclose any information to third parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property or safety.
We may include links to third-party sites. These third parties have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.
