Correction re: Mathew Englander

Mathew Englander, to whom I referred a while back, has e-mailed me a correction about an entry in PIPEDA and Canadian Privacy Law. I had been told that his complaint had arrived by e-mail, having been sent at the stroke of midnight 2001. Mr. Englander writes:

I just came across the reference to me on your blog (

It's ironic that your "sources at the Office of the Privacy Commissioner" infringed on my privacy by telling you that my complaint "was sent by e-mail on January 1, 2001 at 12:01 am." The Privacy Commissioner should not unnecessarily divulge details about complaints and complainants.

In any event the information is wrong. I did not file my complaint by e-mail.

You can post this email on your web site if you like, but of course not my email address (which is a disposable address anyway).

Mathew Englander

As they say, it is always better to get your information first hand ...
