Release Date: 08/10/2020
Staff Reference: Anny Duval

Given life and health insurers’ lengthy and active history in the protection of personal information, the industry has a strong interest in the review of the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). We therefore submit comments on several key issues with the current legislation, namely: disclosure of personal information without consent in the context of fraud, privacy breach notification, access rights involving medical information, access rights used for litigation purposes, and cross-border data flows.
