Privacy Statement

The Ontario Universities Quality Council on Quality Assurance (the Quality Council) is committed to protecting and respecting the privacy of every person who visits our website (herein referred to as the “user”). The Quality Council does not collect any personal information, unless the user voluntarily uses a service that requires it.

Use of “Cookies” and Other Web Technologies

It is a common standard to use automatic data collection tools, such as “cookies,” embedded web links and web beacons. The Quality Council website follows this model. These tools collect standard information that the user’s browser sends to the website, such as the user’s browser type. The tools may also collect information about the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number automatically assigned to the person’s computer whenever he or she is surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify that computer) and user behaviours, such as the pages that are viewed and the links that are accessed. These tools help make the users’ visit to our website more efficient and more valuable by providing them with a customized experience.

Occasional Use of Personal Information

The Quality Council will collect your e-mail address only if you choose to submit it when providing a comment or seeking additional information.  This information will only be used to carry out this service.

Protecting Your Personal Information

The Quality Council will NOT disclose your personal information to any third party.


The information on this website is for information purposes only. Certain links on our site may take you to other websites. The Quality Council provides these links only as a convenience, and not as an endorsement of any linked website or the information, products or services appearing thereon.
