Privacy Commissioner’s consumer privacy consultation event to focus on cloud computing

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) is hosting a consultation with Canadians on the topic of cloud computing and its impact on the privacy of consumers.

The consultation, the third in a series, will take place on June 21, 2010 in Calgary.

Journalists are welcome to attend. The event will also be broadcast live on the Web, and media and the public will be able to submit questions via e-mail and Twitter.

The aim of the consultations is to learn more about emerging technologies that touch on the privacy of consumers, and to stimulate further informed debate. Previous OPC consultations examined the privacy impact of online tracking, profiling and targeting of consumers by marketers and other businesses.
