Privacy & Security

The Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan is committed to protecting your privacy, and our operations are subject to the provisions of The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (1992).

The Office collects a limited amount of personal data, primarily from persons seeking congratulatory messages from the Lieutenant Governor and other dignitaries.  Data collected includes names, ages, length of marriage, mailing and e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers.  In addition, birth and marriage certificates and/or Old Age Security numbers are obtained to verify age or length of marriage for birthday and wedding anniversary messages from Her Majesty The Queen.  Such data is: (i) treated confidentially; (ii) used only for the purposes stated; and (iii) retained only as long as necessary to fulfill requests for congratulatory messages.

When persons voluntarily e-mail us or complete an electronic form that includes identifying information about themselves, our Office keeps a record of that information so we may respond to requests and inquiries. By voluntarily submitting personal information, persons consent to the temporary collection of that information by our Office.

At present, our online forms are not encrypted.  As a result, users of these forms must assume the risk that the personal data transmitted might be illegally intercepted and read by parties not associated with the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan.  Persons concerned about this risk are asked to provide the information to us by postal mail, telephone, or fax.
