The Ontario Public Service Employees Union has developed this site as a public resource for individuals wanting information about and related to our services, departments, committees and member workplaces.

Personal Information

We only collect personal information that you choose to give us (for example, your e-mail address when you e-mail us ).

Any personal information you provide will be used to respond to your message and/or provide you with the requested service or product. At the time the information is collected, you will be informed of the specific purpose for which it is being collected.

We do not collect your personal information if you browse or download from our web site. To the extent that our web server may collect IP addresses, that information is used only for the operation and security of our web site and cannot identify a specific person directly.

A cookie is a small file containing certain pieces of information that a website creates when you visit the site. It can track how and when you use a site, which site you visited immediately before, and it can store that information about you. A cookie is not a program, code or plug-in. Cookies used by the OPSEU do not contain personally identifying information, do not give us access to anything on your hard drive, and cannot do anything to your computer.

There are two common types of cookies, “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session cookies store information only for the length of time that you are connected to a website – they are written to a temporary location on your hard drive. Once you leave the website, the originator of the cookie no longer has the information that was contained on it.

The information stored in “persistent cookies” is written onto your hard drive and remains there until the expiry date of the cookie. Our website may use persistent cookies that makes it easier for your computer to interact with the dynamic content on our site. This cookie contains a random number – no personally identifying information is contained in it and OPSEU does not use this cookie for tracking purposes.

External sites

If you visit any of the visible external links listed on our web pages, we cannot guarantee the following: the content of the external site, how they use personal information, or their privacy practices. When entering another website, you may find that it has its own privacy policy or statement that you can review in determining whether to proceed.
