This is the privacy legislation known as Bill C-6 which protects personal information which is collected, disclosed or used in the course of commercial activities. It is to protect you.

This can be as simple as not sharing personal information by papers displayed on your desk, leaving your computer turned on at a person's policy page or taking pictures of people without their permission.

Your business should have set up a person designated to deal with PIPEDA concerns. All staff should be trained in proper procedures to protect client's privacy. If there is ever a complaint or an issue then it must be reported immediately to this person and immediate steps must be taken to rectify the situation.

The information gather by your agent or broker for the underwriting of insurance is only to be shared for this specific purpose.
