Many condominiums collect license plate information from residents for several reasons including parking enforcement. As such, it is important to take note of the Leon’s Furniture Limited v. Alberta (Information and Privacy Commissioner).
Leon’s stores in Alberta have a policy requiring customers picking up furniture at loading docks to provide their driver’s license numbers and license plate numbers. In 2006, one customer took offence to this practice and complained to the privacy regulator. In 2008, the Privacy Commissioner determined that Leon’s policy violated the Personal Information Protection Act. Leon’s had the Commissioner’s ruling reviewed by Alberta’s Court of Queen Bench, which upheld the Commissioner’s ruling. Leon’s then appealed this decision to the Court of Appeal, which reversed the Privacy Commissioner’s ruling.
