On November 1,an amendment to Canada’s federal privacy law, Personal Information and Protection of Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), introduced mandatory reporting obligations for data Author: Carole Piovesan.

Robert Patrick, an FDIC consumer law attorney in Washington, explains that publicly available information "includes your name, address, and telephone number as they appear in the telephone book, information about your home mortgage recorded in county records, or information that would federal right of information privacy book found on your driver's license if that information is available from your state's department of motor vehicles.".

The Privacy Act controls what information can be legally collected and how that information is collected, maintained, used, and disseminated by the agencies in the executive branchof the federal government. Only information stored in a “system of records” as defined by the Privacy Act are covered.

This book chapter, originally written in and updated inprovides a brief history of information privacy law, with a primary focus on United States privacy law. The right to privacy is an element of various legal traditions to restrain governmental and private actions that threaten the privacy of individuals.

Over national constitutions mention the right to privacy. Since the global surveillance disclosures ofinitiated by ex-NSA employee Edward Snowden, the inalienable human right to privacy has been a subject of international debate.

From Olmstead’s case we can see how far federal agents are willing to go behind the backs of individuals and spy on them to achieve their interests even if it means violating a people’s direct privacy. It follows therefore that federalism is not good when it comes to protection of privacy rights.

The privacy laws of the United States deal with several different legal concepts. One is the invasion of privacy, a tort based in common law allowing an aggrieved party to bring a lawsuit against an individual who unlawfully intrudes into their private affairs, discloses their private information, publicizes them in a false light, or appropriates their name for personal gain.

These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students." Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school.

of information privacy more completely, it is necessary to look to its origins and growth. Technology has played a large role in the story of the emergence of information privacy law.

Frequently, new laws emerge in response to changes in technology that have increased the collection, dissemination, and use of personal information.

This casebook on privacy, information, and surveillance law is the most comprehensive on the market. In addition to covering federal regulatory regimes, it explores the full range of constitutional and state privacy tort doctrines.

In this sense, the information privacy, like the establishment of rules governing the treatment of personal information, demand companies to design alternative mechanisms to safeguard the identity of persons and access to sensitive information in order to prevent discrimination or affect privacy.

Right of Publicity: an overview The right of publicity prevents the unauthorized commercial use of an individual's name, likeness, or other recognizable aspects of one's persona. It gives an individual the exclusive right to license the use of their identity for commercial promotion.

The Freedom of Information Act The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) generally provides that any person has the right to request access to federal agency records or information except to the extent the records are protected from disclosure by any of nine exemptions contained in the law or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a federal law passed in that bars the disclosure of personally identifiable data in student records to third parties without parental consent.

Are we to believe Orin Snyder when he says Facebook privacy is an oxymoron and that showing something to even a small group of friends completely forfeits your right to privacy. The Library Bill of Rights, Article VII, affirms the long-standing commitment of librarians to protect the privacy rights of users, regardless of the format or medium of information in use.

All libraries — not just those that are publicly funded — should have in place privacy policies and procedures to ensure that confidential information. Even seemingly small mishandlings of information by employees can result in unintended exposures of personal information that infringe upon student privacy rights.

FERPA often gets the most attention when it comes to protecting sensitive student information, but COPPA takes privacy a step further, specifically addressing the protection of data. With the revelations in recent weeks about far-reaching domestic surveillance programs by the National Security Agency (NSA) and other Federal agencies that were expanded under the Patriot Act, Americans are scrambling to determine what privacy rights they have to information collected by the Federal Government.
