The contents of this website are provided for informational purposes only. The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority does not warranty the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of the information contained within the website.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is committed to providing visitors with a website that respects their privacy. This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices on the website.

The website does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or e-mail address. We would only obtain this type of information if you supply it by sending us an e-mail or registering in a secure portion of the website.

All personal information held or collected by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is protected under the federal Privacy Act. This means that at any point of collection you will be asked for consent to collect your information, and you will be informed of the purpose for which it is being collected and how to exercise your right of access to that information.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority 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 address of the computer that has contacted our web site, 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 our site unless an attempt to damage the site has been detected.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority does not normally use “cookies” to track how our visitors use this site or to determine sites previously visited. We will notify you before any cookies are used. (A “cookie” is a file that may be placed on your hard drive without your knowledge by a web site to allow it to monitor your use of the site).

Information on individual visitors is used by Vancouver Fraser Port Authority employees who need to know the information in order to respond to your request or to ensure the security of this system. We only share the information you give us with another government department if your inquiry relates to that department. We do not use the information to create individual profiles, nor do we disclose this information to anyone outside the federal government.
