Your privacy

EITC is committed to providing our staff, clients and visitors with webpages that respect their privacy. This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices for all official EITC websites.

EITC websites do not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or email address. This information is only obtained if you provide it voluntarily, through contacting us via email, or through an online form.

Any personal information you do provide is managed according to the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA).

Some EITC webpages may collect more information than is described here and will have additional privacy policies. Where applicable, please be sure to read these privacy policies.

Information collected automatically

EITC logs http requests to our server. These logs capture computer information and navigation data.

Some of the information collected does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your domain name or IP address, may identify you depending on the naming standards followed by your internet service provider. If this concerns you, you may wish to ask them about their policies and practices.

While we make no attempt to link the information captured to the identity of individuals, our logs do identify the following:

  • The internet domain and IP address from which you access our website;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time you access our site;
  • The pages you visit; and
  • If you linked to the EITC website from another website, the address of that website.

Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except EITC personnel who need the information for legitimate business purposes such as responding to a request.


A cookie is a small piece of text information that is sent to your browser when you access a website. Your browser will return this cookie information to the domain where the cookie originated. While we do not regularly use “cookies” to track how our visitors use the site, cookies may be used on some pages to help you fill in forms or track your use of the pages. The length of time that the cookie will reside on your machine will depend upon the specific set-up of the particular sites you visit.

If you are concerned about the use of cookies, you can refer to the help information in your browser software for information on how to disable cookies. If you wish to delete cookies from your machine, consult your browser’s help files for instructions on how to do so.


For site security purposes, EITC employs software programs to monitor network traffic that identifies unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.

Links to other sites

Official EITC pages may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other websites and encourage you to examine each site’s privacy policy and disclaimers and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability, and correctness of material and information found.

Information collected in emails and web forms

If you should choose to provide us with personal information — as in an email or by filling out a form and submitting it to us through our website — we will use that information to respond to your message and to help us get the information you have requested. In accordance with the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, EITC only collects personal information directly related to and necessary for an operating service or client activity.

Transactions where information enters a system

Where personal information is provided that enters a system of records, it is collected in compliance with the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. EITC collects, creates and maintains information for the purposes of admission, registration and other activities directly related to its education programs.
