“The legal considerations of the Internet of Things” by Sandra Rubin, Lexpert Magazine Lexpert Magazine quotes Alex Cameron in an article on the legal considerations of the Internet of Things, everyday objects embedded with software, sensors and network connectivity, collecting and exchanging data.

“The availability of that information could have privacy consequences in terms of potential breaches but also for legitimate uses,” says Alex Cameron, Leader of the Privacy & Information Protection Group at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP's office in Toronto.

“Does your insurer get to know in great detail and with specifics what your habits are — what kind of foods you’re eating, your physical habits, health-related information? Is it appropriate it get[sic] into their hands, and should they have to get your consent for that?”

While Cameron admits to some unease, he uses his smartphone the way most of us do — although he says he is careful with the privacy settings and reads privacy policies carefully before signing up for anything new.
