The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”) was introduced in 2001 to protect Canadians from inappropriate collection, use and disclosure of their personal data by organizations in the course of commercial activities. Five years later, it is not clear to what extent organizations are in fact respecting the legislation. This study was designed to shed some light on that question, by assessing the compliance of retailers with certain key provisions of PIPEDA.
