 ...the potential for transforming public libraries, especially in rural areas, is enormous. This is a [network] that brings people together, strengthens our communities and creates another service niche for public libraries in Alberta.

Law At Lunch – Information, Identity Theft and Law

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Driver’s license information, SIN number, credit cards, medical records, banking information, passport… There’s a whole identity out there made up of information about you, much of it stored in   electronic databases. If that identity is stolen, or your information gets into the wrong hands some other way, or the information is wrong, the results can be serious. This presentation provides a general overview of legal issues related to your information identity. Questions for discussion include:
·         do you have to give your personal information, and if so when and to whom
·         what can you do: - if information is wrong; - if somebody gives out information about you when they shouldn’t; - if somebody steals your information
·         does it make a difference if your information is collected or stored somewhere outside Alberta or Canada?
Lethbridge College’s Public Legal Education Program helps educate the public about law and the legal system by providing general education and information. (The program does not provide legal advice). The program is funded by a grant from the Alberta Law Foundation.
