Privacy Commissioner issues annual report

The Federal Privacy Commissioner released her annual reports to parliament yesterday. One deals with the Privacy Act - the public sector privacy legislation. The other deals with PIPEDA - the private sector legislation. From the quick scan I have made of the PIPEDA report: -complaints doubled in 2004 over 2003 -it includes commentary on privacy in light of technology such as RFID and GPS -it raises some issues for discussion for the upcoming 2006 PIPEDA legislative review

The reports and news releases are available on the Privacy commissioner's web site.
