We use the term “devices” to refer collectively to computers and mobile devices, as well as the internet browsers and other applications on your devices that interact with the internet. The Canadian Press engages in cross device data collection which refers to the process of collecting data from devices that have been determined through statistical analysis to be linked or related. Our partners whom we employ to provide this service use cross device data to provide interest-based advertising services to our customers and to deliver tailored ads to users across multiple devices.
With regard to non-personally identifiable information, The Canadian Press is currently using and has contracted with third party vendors to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from our users to administer our content in order to improve our products or services. We may also perform statistical analysis of user behavior in order to measure interest in our online products and services for product development purposes.
The Canadian Press will not disclose any personally identifiable information about our current or former users to anyone, except as permitted or required by law, or as described herein. The Canadian Press will endeavor to maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality of the information that we collect online.
We may share your personal data with service providers who perform services on our behalf. For example, we may hire other companies to handle the processing of payments, to provide data storage, to host websites, to fulfil orders and shipments, to assist in direct marketing, analyse your interests and preferences and to conduct audits, etc. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal data they need to provide the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. The Canadian Press maintains contracts with these third parties requiring their treatment (access, use and disclosure) of personal data to be consistent with our obligations under the law.
You may review, update or correct certain of the personal information that is stored in your user account in our Services (if you have one) by using the “Contact Us” information below. We may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details before we are able to provide you with any information, correct any inaccuracies, or delete any information.

Cookies contain information, including personal data that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the Cookie to you. The information that Cookies collect includes the date and time of your visit, your registration information, and your navigational and purchase history. Pixel tags, also called web beacons, are clear image (i.e., non-visible) files that may be placed on a website, in an email or newsletter, and request information from your device such as your browser type and may assist us in determining your engagement with the content of the website and emails we send, how many users have visited certain pages, or how users have otherwise engaged with our messages or newsletters. We may use web beacons to help deliver cookies.
HTML5 may be used to store information on your computer or device about your Service usage activities. This information can be retrieved by us to determine how our products or services are being used by our visitors, how our products or services may be improved, and to customize our products or services for our users.
These tracking technologies may be deployed by us and/or our service providers or partners on our behalf. These technologies enable us to assign a unique number to your computer or device, and relate information about your use of the products or services to other information about you, including your personal information. These technologies also enable us to recognize you when you access our products or services using different web browsers or devices.
You can manage website cookies in your browser settings. You always have the choice to have your device warn you each time a cookie is being sent or change these settings by accepting, rejecting, or deleting cookies. If you choose to change your settings, you may find that certain functions and features will not work as intended on the products or services.

The security of your personal data is important to us. We take appropriate and reasonable steps designed to help protect your personal data from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For instance, in some cases we encrypt that information in transit using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If a password is used to protect your account and personal data, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential.
Our websites may include discussion forums or other interactive areas or services, including blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards, online hosting or storage services, or other areas or services in which you or third parties create, post or store any content, messages, comments, materials or other items on the sites (“Interactive Areas”). If you use an Interactive Area, you should be aware that these areas are open to the public and any personal data you post or provide at registration may be viewable by others. We are not responsible for public disclosure of personal data you submit in connection with the Interactive Areas, nor are we responsible for how others might use that information, including to send you unsolicited messages. Interactive Area postings may be retained indefinitely. At any time, you can to request that we remove a posting by using the “Contact Us” information below.

We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide the products or services and fulfil the transactions you have requested, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. Because these needs can vary for different data types in the context of different products or services, actual retention periods can vary significantly based on criteria such as user expectations or consent, the sensitivity of the data, the availability of automated controls that enable users to delete data, and our legal or contractual obligations.
The Services are not intended for use by children. If, however, we unknowingly collect and use information from children under the age of 13, we will comply with industry guidelines and applicable laws.
If you are located outside of Canada, please note that the information you provide to us will be transferred to Canada. By using this website, you consent to this transfer.

This plan will be reviewed and updated at least once every five (5) years, or sooner as required.
CP is committed to ensuring equal access and participation for people with disabilities. We are committed to treating people with disabilities in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence, and we are committed to meeting their needs in a timely manner.
We will do so by removing and preventing barriers to accessibility and meeting our accessibility requirements under the AODA and Ontario’s accessibility laws.
This policy applies to all employees of CP and anyone providing contracted services on behalf of the company.

As pertains to the return to work process and the documentation of individual accommodation plans, we commit to:
Performance Management, Career Development & Redeployment
