        Hi Gord and all,

         

        An interesting addition to the cautionary tale is that long ago, I shared family information with a cousin. I did not share that information publicly. Yet, I found that information in an online fee-based database. So it doesn’t matter whether it is shared publicly or shared privately, it can be quickly and easily shared with everyone out there. I did manage to get the database to remove the information but it was not as quickly and easily remedied. Eventually after much persistence, it was removed. Now I am cautious sharing with even family. I give them so many warnings about sharing the data outside their immediate family that one family member thought I was trying to hoard it so I could sell it. I was able to convince him, I hope, that it was a more altruistic motive and more worthy of being upheld than crass commercialism. Educate your family members about respecting privacy standards, which in Canada is now law through Privacy Act and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.
