Web Privacy Statement
Humber is committed to respecting the privacy of its website users and protecting their personal information in accordance with its legislative requirements under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). This Web Privacy Statement explains the current practices employed by Humber for collecting, using and protecting information collected from its website users.
Collection of Personal Information
Humber only obtains specific personal information, such as your name, phone number or email address if specifically provided by the website user when completing an online web form, submit an email to Humber with such information or register on the Humber website. Humber does not share personal information that is provided voluntarily through web forms or other means, including standard web server log files unless stated otherwise (see Third-Party Service Providers). If you have supplied your email address, Humber or any third party service provider may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, request your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Humber and its products.
Web Server Log Files
Humber uses standard web server log files to collect site visitation statistics from its website users. Web server logging does collect machine-specific information such as IP address, operating system, and web browser type. Logs may also provide information about user pathways through the web site. Humber collects this information in order to understand how its web site is used; to plan for future enhancements to the web site; and provide content tailored to a website user’s interests.
Humber uses various analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to measure traffic patterns to, from and within the Humber website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the Humber website is transmitted to various analytics service provider servers both inside and outside of Canada. The information collected is used to save preferences, compile statistical information and improve the efficiency of Humber websites. No personally identifiable information is recorded or provided to Google.
Third-Party Service Providers
Humber uses third party service providers to assist with its marketing efforts, maintaining its website and providing Humber services. When information is shared with third party services providers, Humber requires the third party service providers to maintain the privacy, confidentiality and security of the personal data and comply with applicable legislation including FIPPA and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) to protect the information they collect and use on behalf of Humber. Humber does not share academic information or information related to student accounts.
EDI related data collected as part of the OCAS application
Humber College is committed to informed equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) action to minimize systemic barriers and to help build a more inclusive and equitable environment for applicants and students alike. Our commitment to informed action is a conscious decision to foster respectful communication and outreach with all applicants. It is our shared responsibility to encourage anti-oppressive practices that embrace innovation and recognize the value of diversity to achieve sustainable and meaningful change.
At Humber, EDI-related data collected through the application process will not be used to influence an admissions decision. Humber may use applicant information for communication outreach (e.g., email) that is tailored and supportive based upon an applicant’s unique identity. EDI aggregate data may also be used to better inform Humber’s policies, services and daily practices. We are committed to being transparent about our EDI work and actions and why they are important to us. This work is never done.
