Privacy Commissioner Releases Videogame Guidance

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has released a Guidance Document for videogames, with particular relevance to online games which require users to provide personal information as a condition of accessing the game.  The OPC has made available both html and .pdf versions of the Guidance Document.

The Guidance Document consists of a series of questions and answers (primarily aimed at gamers) supplemented with information about video game developers’ obligations under Canadian privacy legislation.

Our pals at AccessPrivacy will be discussing the Guidance Document on their November 21, 2012 monthly call – details here.
