  1. Online Privacy Statement

Our Commitment to Privacy Your privacy is important to us. Our entire operations, including this web site, are subject to The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. In addition, SaskEnergy has a Privacy Policy on its web site with full explanation how SaskEnergy and its subsidiaries are committed to protecting your privacy. To make these notices easy to find, we make them available on our homepage and at every point where that personally identifiable information may be requested.

The Way We Use Information We use the information you provide about yourself when placing a request only to perform the requested function, or, in limited circumstances, in accordance with The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Your Privacy and the Internet Specific personal information, such as your name, phone number or email address, is not automatically gathered. SaskEnergy would only obtain this type of information if you supply it by email or by registering in a secure portion of the site for a program or service (e.g. personal information provided voluntarily when you complete an online form or request for service).

The nature of the Internet is such that Web servers automatically collect certain information about a visit to a website, including the visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers (ISP) to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, does not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, such as with the co-operation of an ISP for example, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. For this reason, even the Government of Canada considers the IP address to be personal information, particularly when combined with other data automatically collected when a visitor requests a Web page such as the page or pages visited, date and time of the visit.

Improving your Experience on SaskEnergy Websites

Digital Markers (including cookies) A digital marker is a resource created by the visitors’ browser in order to remember certain pieces of information for the Web server to reference during the same or subsequent visit to the website. Examples of digital markers are “cookies” or HTML5 web storage. Some examples of what digital markers do are:

  • they allow a website to recognize a visitor who has previously accessed the site;
  • they track what content is viewed on a site which helps website administrators ensure visitors find what they are looking for.

SaskEnergy uses sessional and persistent digital markers on its websites. During your on-line visit, your browser exchanges data with SaskEnergy’s Web server. The digital markers used do not allow SaskEnergy to identify individuals and do not contain personal information.

You may adjust your browser settings to reject digital markers, including cookies, if you so choose. However, it may affect your ability to interact with the MIPLCL.com website.

Web Analytics Web analytics is the collection, analysis, measurement, and reporting of data about Web traffic and visits for purposes of understanding and optimizing Web usage. Information in digital markers may be used in conjunction with computer request data to identify and track your online interactions with the MIPLCL.com website.

SaskEnergy uses Google Analytics and log file analysis to improve MIPLCL.com. When your computer requests a MIPLCL.com Web page, the following types of information are collected and used for Web analytics:

  • the originating IP address
  • the date and time of the request
  • the type of browser used
  • the page(s) visited
  • referral website

If you wish, you may opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics by disabling or refusing the cookies; by disabling JavaScript within your browser; or by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On. Disabling Google Analytics or JavaScript will still permit you to access comparable information or services from our websites. If you disable your session cookie option, you will still be able to access our public website, but you might have difficulties accessing any secure services.

SaskEnergy uses log file analysis internally and retains information collected for Web analytics in accordance with our internal Records Management Policy.

Data collected for Web analytics purposes goes outside of Canada to Google servers and may be processed in any country where Google operates servers. Data may be subject to the governing legislation of that country, [for example the USA Patriot Act]. For further information about Google Analytics, please refer to the Google Analytics terms of service.

Protecting the Security of SaskEnergy Websites Software programs are used to monitor network traffic and to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. When you visit MIPLCL.com, these software programs automatically receive and temporarily store information supplied by your browser (for example, Internet explorer, Mozilla Firefox) in our Web server logs. Some of the information automatically collected by our server when you browse our website includes:

  • the network location and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you used to contact our website;
  • the name of the domain you used to access the Internet (.com, .org, .net, .ca, etc.);
  • the type of browser you used;
  • the type of operating system you used (Windows, Mac OS, etc.)
  • the date and time you accessed the site;
  • the pages you have accessed and the documents you have downloaded; and
  • the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site, if applicable.

In most circumstances, this is anonymous statistical data and no attempt is made to link this data, nor the IP addresses of the computers that have contacted our website with the identity of individuals visiting our site unless an attempt to damage the site has been detected. The programs are never used to gather specific personal information such as your name, your phone number or your email address.

When a threat to the MIPLCL.com site or computer systems of SaskEnergy is detected, the information may be shared with appropriate law enforcement authorities if suspected criminal activities are detected.
