CIPPIC Files Complaint in Data Breach Case

The Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic has filed a formal complaint with the Canadian Privacy Commissioner, requesting a formal investigation into the widely-reported security breach suffered by the Winners group of companies, and affecting consumers who shop at any Winners or HomeSense store in Canada. CIPPIC is concerned that Winners/HomeSense may be collecting customer information that they don’t need, storing it for longer than they need to, and sharing it with other companies for secondary marketing purposes without the customers’ full and informed consent.
