We will retain your personal data as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we have collected it. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of your personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Use of Google Analytics

The site https://univins.ca uses Google Analytics, a web audience measurement tool. With cookies, Google Analytics collects information about your navigation on this site, which is stored on servers located, among other places, in the United States. Google may communicate this information to third parties in case of a legal obligation or when these third parties process the data on behalf of Google.

The information collected by the tool includes, for example, the pages you visit, the date, time, duration, and frequency of your visits, and the links on which you click. The type of operating system of your computer, the language used, the name of your Internet service provider, and your geographical location (region) are also part of the information collected. Your IP address is also collected but is anonymized (truncated) to ensure the confidentiality of the information concerning you. IP anonymization prevents the identification of a user through this data.

Google uses the information collected only to produce statistics and reports on navigation on this site, allowing the government to improve its electronic service delivery. Google will not, under any circumstances, link the information collected on this site with any other data it holds.

If desired, you can prevent Google from recording information related to your navigation by installing a browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics.

To learn more about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the educational page of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.
