The Hub

Terms of Participation

You acknowledge and accept:

  1. All personal information provided through the registration process will be used solely for the purpose of enrolment in the Hub Messaging System and stored on a Calgary Police Service (CPS) secured server.

    We are asking you to create an account and register using your full name, address, phone number, and email address, so that we know who we are communicating with and what kind of information to share with you. In particular, information distribute is often geographically based.

    The Calgary Police Service also employs software programs to monitor network traffic and to identify unauthorized attempts to replace or change information, or otherwise cause damage. The software logs computer information such as IP address, as well as navigation and click-stream data of the computer that has contacted our server. We make no attempts to link this information with the identity of individuals visiting our site unless an attempt to damage the site is detected. Furthermore, IP information is never stored in the same database as individual names and addresses, and none of this information is disclosed outside of the Calgary Police Service’s personnel.

    IP information would only be linked to an individual in exceptional circumstances such as where the integrity of our website is compromised. In such a case, a warrant would be required to access this information for investigative reasons. Alternatively, the personal information retrieved under a warrant might potentially eliminate someone as a suspect.

    Further information regarding the CPS Privacy Policy can be found here .
