Privacy Act in Canada

We are based in Canada but have clients and, to some extent, operate in the US, Australia, and the UK." Is it sufficient to specify conformance with PIPEDA as defined in Canada's Privacy Act or do we have a separate requirement in each country we operate in? Thanks

I’m assuming that by PIPEDA you mean the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.

Considering that, since you have customers in other countries, you should assess privacy-related laws and regulations in these countries to check if those define some kind of requirement related to the protection of their citizens’ private data stored/processed in other countries.

In case there are no such requirements, it would be sufficient to specify conformance with PIPEDA.
