Other Foreign Legal Provisions Affecting International Online Commerce


Review foreign privacy and data protection laws.

The Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act which prohibits, in a commercial context, the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information about Canadian residents without their consent, has been held to apply to foreign companies. Canada’s strict anti-spam law and the regulations promulgated thereunder apply to anyone who sends a commercial electronic message to any “electronic address”in Canada. Unlike the U.S. CAN SPAM Act, CASL is an opt-in law. This white paper reviews this law and discusses foreign data retention laws, foreign localization laws and consumer protection laws.
