Privacy Policy

Please note that if you are providing information or a document to the NMRIRB through this website that relates to one of the NMRIRB’s public duties or responsibilities under the Nunavik Inuit Land Claims Agreement and applicable law, then you must understand that you have no expectation or right of privacy concerning that information or document. If you include personal information in that information or document, then you are agreeing to that personal information being part of the public registry information on this website. If you are providing personal information that does not relate to one of the NMRIRB’s public duties or responsibilities, such as a document sent to the NMRIRB concerning a private matter or an application for employment with the NMRIRB, then this Privacy Policy will apply.

Subject to the foregoing, this Privacy Policy applies to all individuals who access and use this website, or communicate with or submit personal information to the NMRIRB, and the NMRIRB is committed to ensuring the privacy of your personal information.

By visiting this Website, communicating with or submitting information to the NMRIRB, you are providing your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information as set out in this Privacy Policy. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual. In some cases, your consent may be “implied”, that is, your permission is assumed based on your action or inaction at the point of collection, use or sharing of your personal information.

If you choose not to provide the NMRIRB with certain personal information or if you withdraw your consent, where such withdrawal is available, the NMRIRB may not be able to address your inquiry, assist or communicate with you, or this Website may not function correctly.

We may collect your personal information from different sources. For instance, you may provide information when you contact us through this website, by email, telephone or otherwise, create an account through this website, or submit information to us. Generally, we use this information to respond to your inquiries, to process your applications or submissions, to contact you about the NMRIRB or to provide information that may be of interest to you.

When you visit this Website, the NMRIRB may also collect technical information about your interactions with this Website. This information may include information about your visit to this Website, including such information as the IP address of your computer and which browser you used to view the website, your operating system, screen resolution, location, language settings in browsers, the site you came from, keywords searched (if arriving from a search engine) or the number of page views. The NMRIRB may use this information to see how many people visit the website, to measure and improve its effectiveness and ensure it is functioning properly, and to protect against unauthorized access.

The NMRIRB will not share your personal information with any third party without your consent, other than the NMRIRB’s service providers or as otherwise required or permitted by law.

The NMRIRB employs organizational, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality of personal information and to safeguard personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. The NMRIRB retains personal information only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which it was collected and for which consent was received, unless otherwise authorized or required by law.

All personal information collected by the NMRIRB is governed by applicable Canadian privacy laws. Under such laws, you have the right to access and correct your personal information. To exercise such rights, please contact the NMRIRB using the contact information below:
