Introducing PIPEDA

The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) is a Canadian law that regulates how private sector organizations collect, use, and disclose personal information. PIPEDA aims to balance the legitimate need of organizations to collect and use personal data with individuals’ right to privacy.

  2. Access to Information: You have the right to know what personal information an organization has collected about you and how it’s being used.
  3. Correcting Information: If you discover that your personal information is inaccurate, you have the right to request its correction.
  4. Withdrawal of Consent: You can withdraw your consent for the use of your personal information, unless the information is necessary for legal reasons.
  5. Safeguarding Data: Organizations are responsible for safeguarding your personal information and must implement security measures to protect it.
