Parks Canada app privacy policy

The Parks Canada National app collects the following data through Google Analytics for Firebase only as aggregated statistics on the use of the service:

  • Device Data: We collect device data such as information about phone, tablet, or other device you use to access the Parks Canada app. Depending on the device used, this device data may include information such as application identification IDs, location, browser type, hardware model, operating system, and system configuration information.

  • Usage Data: Usage data is service-related, diagnostic, usage, and performance information servers automatically collect when you access or use the Parks Canada app and which we record in log files. Depending on how you interact with us, this log data may include your browser type, and settings and information about your activity in the Parks Canada app (such as the date/time stamps associated with your usage, pages and files viewed, searches, and other actions you take such as which features you use), device event information (such as system activity, error reports, and hardware settings).

  • Advertising ID: By default, Google Analytics for Firebase collects Advertising IDs. Advertising IDs are similar to cookies and allow you to be tracked for analytics purposes. To clear this tracking, you can reset your ID. To reset your Android advertising ID, Open Google Settings on your Android device by tapping on Menu or Settings and then on Google Settings once all apps are displayed on the screen. Locate and tap on the Ads menu under Services. Tap on “reset advertising ID” on the new page. To prevent being tracked on iOS or iPadOS, go to Settings > Tracking, turn off Allow Apps to Request to Track.

  • Location Data: The Park Canada app accesses your phone’s GPS function to collect geolocation data that provides your current location to deliver location-specific content.

    You can opt out of allowing us to collect this information either by refusing access to the information or by disabling your Location setting on your device. However, if you choose to opt out, you may not be able to use certain aspects of the Parks Canada app.

This information is used to deliver and facilitate delivery of services to users and to evaluate and improve our services, products and your experience.
