Privacy Statement


The privacy practices of Spinal Cord Injury Manitoba Inc. (‘SCI Manitoba’) reflect our obligations under the Personal Health Information Act (PHIA), the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

SCI Manitoba’s website has integrated Google Analytics to help us analyze how visitors use the site. Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that uses cookies, which are small text files placed on your computer, to track visitor interactions. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and reports website trends without identifying individual visitors.


The information acquired through Google Analytics related to your use of the SCI Manitoba website (including IP address) is shared with Google, and the information is then processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for use solely by SCI Manitoba. We generate Google Analytics reports so that we know how many people visit our site, the geographical region they are from, which pages they view on our site, and what browsers and operating systems they are using to access our site. The information is grouped into statistics, so individuals are not identified in statistical reports. The information is used to improve the function and utility of our website.


SCI Manitoba limits access to personal information collected on this website to employees with a valid need for the information. SCI Manitoba employees are informed about the importance of protecting the privacy of personal information and upholding our privacy standards.


SCI Manitoba will never share or disclose personal information collected through the SCI Manitoba without your explicit consent.
