Commissioner to Dating Company: Educate Your Workers
DATA LOSSJanuary 4, 2013
Alberta’s privacy commissioner has ordered a speed-dating company to tighten its training following the inadvertent disclosure of a woman’s e-mail address, MACLEANS.CA reports. A woman complained after attending a speed-dating event organized by FastLife International when she received an e-mail from a man who claimed he obtained her e-mail address from the company. The woman had not given her consent. Following a December 2011 investigation prompted by the woman’s complaint, adjudicator Keri Ridley ruled the incident was due to human error, the report states, and FastLife has been given 50 days to educate employees on privacy laws.
