Privacy policy

Gegi.ca commits to the following standards and practices to ensure that visitors access our resources and, if they choose to do so, safely share their email address with Gegi.ca.

Collection of Information

Gegi.ca does not collect any information about individual visitors unless they provide an email address in order to receive occasional updates about Gegi.ca, relevant policies or relevant legislation. In order to comply with privacy laws, each person is required to attest that they are 13 years old or older and that they have read the short version of the privacy policy.

Like most websites, we use Google Analytics to track how many visitors we receive and how they use the website. Because we have separate pages for each board’s students and each board’s staff, standard analytics help us to infer which school boards might be seeing increases (or, over time, decreases) in potential experiences of gender expression or gender identity discrimination. This is information that we intend to share with school boards to support their work. No visitors are tracked individually, and no data is retained regarding visitors.

No one will be excluded from accessing Gegi.ca for not giving us their email address via the Contact form.

Gegi.ca will not share emails gathered via the Contact form with any individual or organization.

Storage of Information

Email addresses are stored in a secure location and only retained for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which they are collected. Unless a person chooses to unsubscribe, email addresses are normally destroyed once we determine that it is no longer necessary to retain this information and such destruction takes place within sixty days from such determination.

Third Party Services

To manage our email updates, we use MailChimp (https://mailchimp.com), and all requests for emails about Gegi updates are sent through ContactForm7 (https://contactform7.co) a WordPress Plugin for submission forms. All emails sent through our submissions form are stored on the @queensu.ca email server.

Policy Updates

This policy is subject to change and we invite users to check back frequently.

If you have any comments or questions about this policy, we invite you to send them to gegi@queensu.ca.
