Information we collect
In order to use many aspects of the Service, you are not required to provide information about yourself, such as your name, email address, telephone number, mailing address and profession. However, we may ask or require you to provide this kind of information in order for us to respond to your requests for information, to respond to inquiries or communications from you, or to facilitate your participation in certain features of the Service. In some cases, we may combine the information you provide through the Service with personal information we have collected about you from other sources, such as your relationship with the CRA other than through the Service.
We may automatically collect some information about your computer when you visit the Service. For example, we may collect your IP address, Web browser software (such as Internet Explorer), and referring website. We also may collect information about your activity on the Service, such as the activities in which you participate or the pages you view. We may combine this automatically gathered information with other information, including personal information we have collected about you through the Service or through other means.
When you visit the Service, we may assign your computer a “cookie” (a small, unique identifier text file) to remember who you are. We also may include other information in our cookie files; for example, if you arrived at the Service via a link from a third-party site, we may include the URL of the linking page. You may opt out of the cookies delivered through the Service by changing the appropriate setting on your browser. Please be aware that opting out of cookies may disable all cookies delivered to your browser, not just the ones delivered by CRA. We may combine the information we collect through cookies with other information, including personal information we have collected about you through the Service or from other sources, including third parties.
