The EMRIRB may collect, use, and disclose information, including personal information, which is information about an identifiable individual, for the purposes of our Mandate, and for other purposes which are consistent with this purpose, including administrative purposes, and purposes which are  otherwise permitted or required by the applicable law.

The personal information the EMRIRB collects may include:

  1. Your name and contact information,
  2. Information you choose to include in User Content, including without limitation, in any project proposal, and
  3. Any other personal information you choose to submit to us.

If you are providing information or a document, such as a project proposal, to the EMRIRB through this website that relates to our public Mandate or one of the EMRIRB’s responsibilities under the Eeyou Marine Region Land Claims Agreement and applicable laws, then you acknowledge that you have no expectation or right of privacy concerning that information or document and where consistent with or required by our Mandate, you consent to the public disclosure of such information or document. Information disclosed in this manner will include information regarding project proposals submitted to the EMRIRB, which will be published in the EMRIRB’s public registry. The EMRIRB’s public registry allows access to information related to project proposals received by the EMRIRB, including without limitation, project type, project area, EMRIRB project number, or assessment status. If you include personal information in information or a document you submit to the public registry, or for the purposes of our Mandate, then you are consenting and agreeing to that personal information being part of the public registry information on this website.

If you are providing information or a document to the EMRIRB concerning a separate private matter, such as applying for employment with the EMRIRB, then the EMRIRB will use and disclose that information for the purposes for which it is submitted, and it will not appear as part of our public registry. However, we may also use, or disclose personal information to third parties, if we have reason to believe that using or disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating an agreement they have with us; (iii) investigate security breaches or cooperate with government authorities pursuant to a legal matter; or (iv) to protect our rights, safety or property. Lastly, we may use or disclose your personal information for any other purpose to which you consent.

Although we have taken measures to help protect our website, computer systems and personal information that we have collected from unauthorized use, access, disclosure, misuse, alteration or destruction, no security measures can provide absolute protection. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.

Some or all of the personal information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, including in the United States, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions.   

If you have submitted personal information to us and would like to have access to it, or if you would like to ask us to correct it, please contact us using the contact information provided below. We will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request; however, in some cases we may not be able to allow you to access certain personal information in certain circumstances, for example if it contains personal information of other persons, or for legal reasons.
