Information about you and your visits to Saskatchewan.ca

We’re not responsible for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or computer system that might happen when you use Saskatchewan.ca.
You are responsible for the security of your personal computer and other internet connected devices (e.g. your cell phone or tablet). We suggest you take additional measures to protect your devices from viruses and other security threats. These may include:
Ensure you are using the most secure web browser currently available. Occasionally, security patches will be available to fix known security gaps associated with your web browser. You should monitor and implement these patches where appropriate.
- Familiarize yourself with your web browser’s various functions and enable/disable such functions as needed in order to maximize security.
- Web browsers often use a “cache” to temporarily save web pages in your computer’s memory. Although the cache is designed to improve performance, subsequent users of your computer may be able to view webpages previously visited by you by accessing the information in the cache. You should always completely close your web browser and log out of My Services once you have finished with Saskatchewan.ca. You should also frequently clear your cache.
- Ensure you have up-to-date virus protection software on all systems and that you run virus scans regularly.
- All connections to the Internet under your control should be protected by firewall protection to help prevent unauthorized access to your systems.
