Keeping you informed at home and abroad
The privacy laws in Canada, the United States, the European countries and other parts of the world are, for the most part, based on the widely accepted Fair Information Practice Principles set out in the 1981 OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data. However, privacy laws around the world still differ in many respects. With this complex web of legislation, organizations with a presence in multiple jurisdictions, such as those conducting business on-line, need to design policies and practices that do not violate any one privacy law that applies to the business.
Privacy commissioners would like to see more consistency in the laws, their application, and how they are being interpreted. Progress on joint initiatives and a harmonized approach to personal information protection is slowly being made, due to collaboration between data protection regulators around the world.
