Some of the information in this book is more applicable to Americans, rather than Canadadian or Europeans. PRIVACY AND PERSONAL INFORMATION are regulated differently in the European Union (EU), the United Sates (US) and Canada. The EU and Canada centrally supervise the private sector’s use of personal data, whereas the US regulation of the private sector is minimal. These differences emanate from distinct conceptual bases for privacy in each jurisdiction. In the US, privacy protection is essentially liberty protection, i.e. protection from government. For Europeans, privacy protects dignity or their public image. In Canada, privacy protection is focused on individual autonomy through personal control of information. We propose the Canadian model as a conceptual middle ground between the EU and the US, as a basis for future American privacy protection.
