Niagara English Language Academy is committed to protecting the privacy of its online visitors and to ensuring that they have a secure online experience. For most of the website, visitors are able to navigate through pages without providing any personal information. However, in some instances, the Academy may require some personal information in order to provide visitors with a more personal experience.
In these situations, the collection, use, disclosure, and retention of personal information will be in compliance with Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).
FIPPA also outlines the Academy’s obligations regarding the collection, use, disclosure, retention, and disposal of all personal information held in its custody, as well as the regulations surrounding the access of an individual to his or her own personal records. The Academy regards all personal information as confidential, and undertakes great efforts to protect the privacy of both staff and students.
The purpose of this web section is to inform the staff and students of Niagara English Language Academy, as well as the public, of the operational impact of FIPPA, and to provide an overview of the rights and responsibilities of individuals in maintaining compliance with the Act.
