A newly released binational privacy charter says that in most cases it won't have to tell Canada about its plan to pass along the information, according to CBC. Canada and the U.S. jointly released the 12-point statement of privacy principles late Thursday, covering areas including data quality, information security, effective oversight, and redress for people whose privacy is infringed and the United States will be allowed to share information about Canadians with other countries under a sweeping new border deal. A new treaty aimed at improving the flow of commerce between the U.S. and Canada will allow the countries to transfer info received from either nation to a third country.
