In this week's session we'll be exploring the world of privacy! We'll dive into the laws that protect our information and privacy rights in BC, and learn about the effects of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union.
How do we define meaningful consent?
More discussion questions will be revealed at the session.
I thought it would be neat to document the notes that I put together for planning this session!

What is a right?
We generally look at it as a legal thing instead of an ethical thing. It's interesting what we perceive what a right is????
Designating a privacy officer? PIPA and FIPPA (government always has someone)
Some random quotes from the PIPA guide:
The PIPA regulations require that, for an individual who is a minor, seriously ill, or mentally incapacitated, an organization must obtain consent from a legal representative, such as a legal guardian or a person having a power of attorney.
You may only collect personal information for a purpose that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances. You must limit your collection to the amount and type of personal information that is necessary to fulfill your purposes for collecting it. You must notify individuals of the reasonable purposes for collecting personal information before or at the time you collect that information. You must obtain consent from an individual before or at the time you collect personal information.
Be careful of Reasonable Use! ============================= Anja owns a bookstore and maintains an email list of customers who want information on new releases. When her friend, Rose, decides to run for city council, sheuses this list to send out a mass email urging her customers to vote for Rose as a pro-book candidate. Rose has contravened PIPA because she is using the collected information for a new purpose (to campaign for Rose) without first determining whether the new use is reasonable and before notifying her customers that she wishes to use their email addresses for this new purpose and obtaining their consent to do so.
