What Personal Information About You Does Matawa First Nations Collect?:
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Personal Information is information that can be traced back to an individual to establish identity. Examples of PII include your name, home address, telephone number, email address and social insurance number. If other pieces of information are linked to PII, they also become PII. For example, if you use a nickname to chat online and give out your real name while chatting, your nickname becomes PII when linked with other PII.
Generally, you may browse our Web Site without providing any PII. However, we may ask you to provide PII, such as when you complete a survey or participate in polls. Your PII will not be used for any purpose other than to provide you with the requested services.
Other Information Matawa First Nations Collects:
Automatic Data Collection (Anonymous Browsing): As with most Internet sites, the Web Site collects a variety of technical data, including your IP address (a unique number that identifies your access account on the Internet), domain, and Web browser information. We do not log the specific identity of visitors. Technical data is used only to create broad demographic summaries of Web Site usage and Web Site activity (such as average time spent and pages viewed) to assist us in providing useful content that is tailored to be of most value to our users. For example, we use the information to: give the developers of the Web Site information that is useful in determining appropriate new features, content, and services; and to provide partners and clients with aggregate - not individual - information about our user base. Information about individual users is not shared with any third party without consent.
Our Web Site uses "cookies". This technology allows users to move more quickly through our site. Cookies are small text files that a Web Site can use to recognize repeat users and facilitate the users ongoing access to and use of the site. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. We do not record any PII in cookies or store any information about your movements on the Internet outside of our Matawa First Nations Web Sites. You can choose to decline cookies (e.g., by setting your browser to reject cookies), but if you do, some parts of our Web Site may not operate properly. Web logs are maintained by this Web Site.

We use the PII you provide about yourself to supply the service you have requested, to contact you about our programs, products, features or services or for other purposes disclosed at the time of collection. For instance, we may send you an e-mail newsletter or send you information about an upcoming contest or movie. If you do not wish to receive this information, please notify us at Matawa First Nations and we will remove you from our database.
