Canada’s Digital Privacy Act lets companies share customers’ personal info, privacy critics warn | Vancouver Sun

Canada’s Digital Privacy Act lets companies share customers’ personal info, privacy critics warn | Vancouver Sun | Anti _Nanny | Scoop.it

If you worry Big Brother is reporting everything you do on the Internet, changes introduced to Canada’s privacy legislation last week may prove your worries aren’t totally unfounded.


Privacy advocates warn under the Digital Privacy Act, Bill S-4,  Internet users could have their personal information handed over to companies and organizations and they won’t even know that it’s happening.


All those downloaded songs your teen didn’t pay for, the Latest Game of Thrones episode you downloaded illegally or any other real or suspected infractions could result in your name and subscriber information passed along to any company or organization claiming to be investigating fraud or the even the potential breaking of Canadian laws. And the law doesn’t stop at digital piracy.


Michael Geist, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Internet and e-commerce law at the University of Ottawa, says the legislation could be used may be used to obtain information about you for everything from defamation to consumer disputes.


“Unpack the legalese and you find that organizations will be permitted to disclose personal information without consent (and without a court order) to any organization that is investigating a contractual breach or possible violation of any law,” Geist wrote in his blog. “This applies both past breaches or violations as well as potential future violations.

Moreover, the disclosure occurs in secret without the knowledge of the affected person (who therefore cannot challenge the disclosure since they are not aware it is happening).”


And while Industry Canada defended the new legislation in an email to iPolitics, saying that the Privacy Commissioner can take action against organizations that don’t follow the rules in disclosing information, Geist pointed out that Canadians won’t even know their information has been released. While the government suggested that the legislation would apply to organizations such as a provincial law society investigation allegations of malpractice, Geist pointed out the legislation is much broader.
