Data Privacy Day is Jan. 28: here’s how we protect your privacy

This Data Privacy Day, Utilities Kingston is reaffirming our commitment to respecting your privacy. You can count on us!  

Data Privacy Day takes place annually on January 28, 2022. It raises awareness of how personal information is being used, collected or shared in our digital society. Here are the actions we have taken to ensure the protection of your personal information: 

  1. Conducted an assessment of our data collection practices. 

  1. Developed a privacy policy and clear, plain language information on your privacy, so we can be transparent about how we collect, use and share customers’ personal information 

  1. Creating a culture of privacy in our organization by educating employees of their and our organization’s obligations to protecting personal information. 

About Data Privacy Day:

On January 28, Canada and many countries around the world celebrate Data Privacy Day (now expanded into Data Privacy Week, Jan. 24-28). This event, led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance, highlights the impact technology is having on our privacy rights and underlines the importance of valuing and protecting personal information. 

You can get involved at home, at work and in your community. Take action, help create a culture of privacy and support Data Privacy Week’s theme of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust.
