- The information we collect
(a) Site Activity Data
Each time a visitor comes to the OREB site, our Web server collects only the visitor’s domain name or IP address; but not the e-mail address.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web and mobile analytics tracking tool provided by Google, for audience activity, demographics reporting, and remarketing. You can opt-out of Google Analytics by installing a browser plug-in available on Google’s website.
Our website uses standard technology known as “cookies” including session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies temporarily keep your settings. This information is stored until your browser is closed. Persistent cookies are created for specific functions you may choose to use on the website, for example saving favourites. Persistent cookies are used to improve your experience of the website and are retained from session to session. These cookies remain after the browser is closed and are stored locally on your system. OREB does not track such cookies on OREB servers, nor does OREB use such cookies to store personal information. You may choose to delete persistent cookies after visiting the website.
(b) Personal Information
Personal information, such as your name, postal code and e-mail address or telephone number, is collected only when you voluntarily provide it. Such information is received by OREB or its Members only when you send an e-mail through the site.
The personal information you provide to OREB is forwarded only to the person, department, or Member that is equipped to handle your request and is used only to respond to your inquiry.
- Restriction on use of information
The data collected is used to help OREB analyze the browsing patterns of its visitors in order to improve the content and design of its site.
Personal information will not be sold to any third parties, nor will such information be added to bulk e-mailing lists.
