Privacy Statement

The Division of Urology of the University of Alberta has developed this site as a resource for public bodies and individuals wanting information about the Urology Residency Training Program offered at the University of Alberta and the various aspects of the program.

We are committed to providing our visitors with a web site that respects their privacy. This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices on Government of Alberta web sites.

We do not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, or e-mail address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, or registering in a secure portion of the site.

Any personal information you do provide is protected under Alberta’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. This means that, at the point of collection, you will be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected and that you have a right of access to the information.

We use software that receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted our web site. We make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting our site.

We do not regularly use "cookies" to track how our visitors use the site. Whenever we enable "cookies" to facilitate your transactions, we will first inform you.

Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except Division of Urology personnel who need the information, e.g., to respond to a request. We regret that emails asking for surgical advice or sources of surgical information are not answered. Under the Canada Health Act, all patients must be referred to an Urologist by a family Physician; therefore, the Division of Urology cannot provide any surgical referrals.

This web site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other web sites and encourage you to examine each site’s privacy policy and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability, and correctness of material and information found.
