Combining PIPEDA, PETs and market forces through social navigation to enhance privacy protection and compliance

About PIPWatch

The PIPWatch project aims to develop and test a prototype privacy software tool specifically for Canadian Internet users. The PIPWatch toolbar is a software interface device embedded within a web browser designed to enable consumers to easily assess and compare the compliance of on-line businesses with the recent Canadian privacy legislation – the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. (PIPEDA). It represents a new form of privacy enhancing technology (PET) that employs social navigation techniques to help an on-line community of individuals concerned about the handling of their personal information to build and share a database that tracks the privacy performance and regulatory compliance of websites they visit.

PIPWatch is a project of the Information Policy Research Program (IPRP), an on-going program of research examining key public policy issues, notably access, privacy and governance.
