    Canadian Privacy Commissioner Publishes Draft Report on Online Privacy, Requests Public Comment

    In February, Canadian Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart announced a new public consultation “on the privacy issues related to cloud computing practices and their implications for individuals, organizations, and businesses.” “The aim of this consumer consultation is to learn more about cloud computing technology, explore its privacy implications, and find out what privacy protections Canadians expect with respect to cloud computing. The consultation is also intended to promote debate about the impact of these technological developments on privacy, and to inform the next review process for the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).”

    The commissioner’s office says it received 32 written submissions, and it held three public events in Toronto, Montreal and Calgary. The office now has released a draft consultation report for public comment. “The draft report summarizes the input gathered during the course of the consultations and proposes specific actions that the Office will undertake going forward,” the office says. “It also identifies issues for which we are seeking further input. We would like to encourage any interested parties to read the report and submit feedback via our website. The deadline for feedback is November 26, 2010.”

    Here’s the “Draft Report on the 2010 Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s Consultations on Online Tracking, Profiling and Targeting and Cloud Computing.
