Privacy Policy

The OIPC is not using a website analytics program.

Social Media

The OIPC uses Twitter (@ABoipc) to share information about the office's work and to promote activities that relate to the OIPC's functions.

When the OIPC provides links to external sites, the OIPC is not responsible for the accuracy of the information contained on these sites and it does not endorse the sites.

The OIPC follows Twitter accounts that are relevant to the OIPC's work. The OIPC's decision to follow a particular Twitter account does not imply an endorsement of any kind and does not mean that the OIPC supports that account.

The OIPC will reply to tweets, on occasion, but does not tolerate offensive, disrespectful or abusive comments about an individual or organization.

The OIPC does not accept FOIP, HIA, or PIPA requests for review or complaints via social media.

Those who choose to engage in a conversation with the OIPC via social media should be aware that they do so within the public domain. Please do not include personal information in your posts.

Some OIPC staff tweet under their own names as private citizens. Despite their professional affiliation, their tweets or retweets do not represent the official position of the OIPC.

Personal information that you provide to the OIPC through social media is collected, used and disclosed by the OIPC for its mandated purpose: to oversee and enforce the administration of Alberta’s access and privacy legislation, and to educate the public about the laws and access and privacy issues in general.

If you have any questions or comments about the OIPC's use of Twitter, please contact the OIPC.
