IAB Canada recently held a Privacy for Publishers workshop covering off the latest developments in privacy legislation in Canada. There was a lengthy discussion about responsibilities around personal information as well as best practices.
As a follow-up IAB Canada released a checklist that was developed by our Head of Policy and Regulatory Affairs, Adam Kardash at Osler. The checklist is derived from a 26-page guidance document released in 2012 by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Offices of the Information and Privacy Commissioners of Alberta and British Columbia entitled “Getting Accountability Right with a Privacy Management Program”.
We hope you find the document useful as you develop your internal compliance management program.
