Title V - Enabling Electronic Access and Analysis of Parliamentary Information
Sec. 38. Guaranteeing Citizen Privacy
Because parliamentary information ultimately belongs to the public, citizens have a right to access this information in an environment free of discrimination or fear of discrimination. While it is common for websites to collect limited user information, parliamentary websites should restrict the collection of personal information to ensure that citizens’ right to this information is respected. Privacy policies should be clearly and concisely stated on parliamentary websites so that users know what information is being collected and how it may be used.
