Online privacy is a source of constant tension in our wired world: is online banking actually safe? Should I add my phone number to Facebook? Are my smart phone apps tracking my location? In light of the recent revelations about the extent of the National Security Agency’s wiretapping and wire splitting operations in the US, I thought it would be interesting to see what Ontario’s Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (IPC) might have to say about online privacy issues. Jason Papadimos, a Communications Officer at the IPC responded to my questions on behalf of the organization.
