Even more about Blogger, Google, the City of Toronto and privacy

In case you are not aware
Google's Blogger application is an external web publishing service with hosting services in the United States of America.

To use Blogger, we have to agree to specific terms of service.  We do so as staff working with the City of Toronto and this creates a series of inter-locking privacy frameworks that may impact you.

The interlocking privacy framework:

When information is collected on the DATA eh? blog it is collected under section 27 of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act as a record available to the public. Since the authors work for the City of Toronto we have an obligation to remove material that does not meet the terms and conditions posted on this site.
