OPC Releases Final Resolution with Facebook

| September 01, 2009

The OPC has released a letter to CIPPIC outlining its final resolution with social networking site Facebook with respect to the privacy concerns CIPPIC raised in its PIPEDA complaint a year ago.  The letter supplements the original finding and lays out a process for moving forward.  The OPC has said it will continue to work with Facebook over the coming year to ensure that Facebook implements its obligations in a manner that meets the requirements of the Act.  CIPPIC has some outstanding concerns, and will continue to engage both the OPC and Facebook to ensure these are met.
