This is Privacy Awareness Week

Privacy Awareness Week is a promotional campaign first initiated by Privacy Victoria (Australia) in 2001. This year, for the first time, Privacy Awareness Week has gone international.

The week is an opportunity for organizations and agencies covered by privacy legislation to promote privacy awareness to their staff, customers, and to the wider community. The theme for Privacy Awareness Week 2007 is ‘Privacy is your business'.

Do you know your rights and obligations with respect to privacy? Organizations, governments, and government agencies in many countries are bound by a variety of privacy laws. As consumers, each of us is responsible to understand what our rights and responsibilities are under those laws.

Learn more about your rights!

The Canadian Association of Professional Access and Privacy Administrators (CAPAPA) -- Canada’s leading association serving privacy and access professionals -- is spearheading the campaign to promote privacy awareness in Canada.

CAPAPA is a key source for helping Canadians recognize their privacy rights and responsibilities, and is the privacy advocate’s source for issues such as the passenger name record exchange, emerging RFID CHIP technology, and CAPAPA's Submission to the Senate on proposed changes to Canada’s Election Act. More information on these and other Canadian privacy issues is at

Sharon, I like visiting because you always have something new and important to share with us all.

Thank you for visiting my new site. I am up to chapter seven. My sister, Melody, is doing final editing so, chapter's one - six are, hopefully, perfect. She'll double check my newest tomorrow.

By the time I finish writing my eyes cannot see those tiny mistakes. I am glad I have her help.

Anyway, nice visiting and should you see anything that needs fixing, leave a comment and after I make changes I will delete your EDIT THIS message. But only if you want to, naturally. Cheers! :)
