Staggering amounts of sensitive information are being generated and carelessly discarded each day. The Alberta Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) provides guidelines for the proper collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

The Personal Information Protection Act defines personal information as “information about an identifiable individual.” Such information includes basic information such as a person’s name, address, and phone number, as well as more sensitive information such as credit cards numbers, financial records, memberships, and ethnic origin or religious belief. The obligation to safeguard this information rests upon the organization that collects the information.
