Privacy Statement

Nunatsiaq News is committed to upholding fundamental principles of honesty and integrity in our relationship with visitors to our website. Our objective is to build an enduring relationship between Nunatsiaq News and our users based on a foundation of integrity and trust.

To that end, Nunatsiaq News has adopted rigorous standards of privacy and makes the following promise to every visitor to our website:

  1. When a visitor to Nunatsiaq News is required to submit registration information as a prerequisite for accessing any content area of Nunatsiaq News or to use any of its interactive services, contests, newsgroups or e-commerce applications, Nunatsiaq News will not share or sell that personal information to any outside agency, advertiser or other third party, unless the user was made aware of this possibility prior to submitting their personal information.
  2. Although Nunatsiaq News will use “cookies” to track user patterns, Nunatsiaq News will not use cookies to learn the identity of its users, nor attempt to track users after they leave Nunatsiaq News. Further, cookies will not be used by Nunatsiaq News to gather specific personal information about individual users. The usage patterns tracked by individual cookies will remain confidential and Nunatsiaq News will not participate in any external site tracking programs. Nor will we share any cookie-generated information about individual users or user patterns with outside agencies or advertisers. A Nunatsiaq News advertiser may be given summaries of collective user patterns. For example, an advertiser might be told their ad was viewed by 6,000 users on a particular day and 100 clicked on the ad. But an advertiser will never be given information about individual users or their browsing habits.
  3. Nunatsiaq News will not supply email addresses to any third party without having obtained the consent of a user.
  4. When Nunatsiaq News asks its users to supply optional, personal information for contests, surveys, e-commerce applications, or for any other purpose, that information will remain private and not be shared with any outside agency, advertiser or third party, unless the user was made aware of this possibility prior to submitting their personal information.
  5. Nunatsiaq News will compile site-wide demographic information that it will share with advertisers, but it will not compile profiles of individual users, including the gathering of names, addresses, e-mail addresses and other personal information, to be shared with an advertiser, unless the user has consented to the compilation of this material and submitted it freely in a registration form or survey.
  6. Nunatsiaq News tracks user IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration, demographic profiling and traffic logging, but Nunatsiaq News will not use IP addresses to try to identify individual users of Nunatsiaq News.
  7. Nunatsiaq News will abide by all court orders, valid search warrants and subpoenas.
