privacy rights

W h at c a n yo u d o ?

By understanding the value of personal

privacy, you can do a lot to defend it. For

example, you can be careful about sharing

personal information or letting it circulate


When you are asked to provide personal

information, ensure you understand how it

will be used, why it is needed, who will be

sharing it and how it will be safeguarded.

Read privacy policies and ask questions.

Don’t share your personal information if

you are not comfortable with the answers

and give out no more than the minimum

Our Office has also developed a number

of online resources to help individuals to

become more informed about how to protect
