The OPC on LinkedIn: Privacy Notice

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) hosts a page on LinkedIn to communicate with people about future career opportunities at the OPC.

LinkedIn is a third-party social network and online platform used by the OPC to communicate with the public. LinkedIn account holders who use the service are bound by LinkedIn’s User Agreement – this includes our Office. We encourage users to read LinkedIn’s User Agreement and Privacy Policy, as well as the user agreements, terms of service and privacy policies for all social networking services they use. LinkedIn’s Privacy Policy is separate from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner’s Privacy Policy, and the Office’s use of LinkedIn is not an endorsement of LinkedIn’s Privacy Policy or practices.

Our Office does not collect any personal information via LinkedIn. When you “like” one of our posts, that information is displayed under the post and is visible to LinkedIn users visiting our page. LinkedIn also provides us with information on our visitors and followers, and on the numbers of impressions, clicks, interaction and engagement our posts garner, but this information is provided in aggregate form. Our Office may use this information for statistical or analytical purposes and to help us provide content of interest to the public.

Should you have any questions about your privacy rights as explained in the Office of the Privacy Commissioner’s LinkedIn Privacy Notice, please contact our Chief Privacy Officer through our toll-free line at 1-800-282-1376, by e-mail at, or by postal mail at:
