Print this page.

The Government of Canada and the Registry of the Specific Claims Tribunal (RSCT) are committed to providing visitors with websites that are respecting users’ privacy. This Privacy Statement page summarizes the various policies and practices affecting the Specific Claims Tribunal’s E-Filing website and application.


Privacy Statement

The Specific Claims Tribunal’s E-Filing application does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or email address. The Tribunal would obtain this type of information only if you supply it by, for example, registering your profile on the secure E-filing application.

All personal information held or collected by the Registry of the Specific Claims Tribunal (RSCT) is protected under the federal Privacy Act. By clicking Register, you are consenting to the use of your personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act.

The RSCT employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. This software receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted our website, the date and time of the visit and the pages visited. We make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting the website unless an attempt to damage the site has been detected or an investigation into a security breach is required.

The RSCT does not normally use “cookies” to track how visitors use this site or to identify sites visited previously. The system will notify you before any cookies are used so that you may refuse them. (A “cookie” is a file that may be placed on your hard drive by a website without your knowledge to allow the website to monitor your use of that site.)

Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except RSCT personnel when needed. Personal information is collected only for the purpose of allowing you to securely submit or retrieve documents using the Specific Claims Tribunal’s E-Filing application.

The RSCT has taken measures to ensure that none of the information on the E-Filing website is available publicly or can be retrieved in an internet search. This was done by applying instructions using the Robots Exclusion Protocol, which is recognized by Internet search engines (e.g., Google and Yahoo). We cannot guarantee that these technological measures will always be respected, or free from mistakes or malfunctions.
