Under PIPEDA we have had complaints in the insurance realm about covert video surveillance, surveillance without the knowledge or consent of the individual. The purpose of the surveillance is to really look at potentially bogus insurance claims.
One of the issues there was the capture of third parties in that covert video surveillance. If someone is out in their yard with their children, playing soccer, should it be acceptable to survey all of the children as well as the subject of the surveillance? We've looked at that.
And we've also issued some guidelines for the insurance field on covert video surveillance. We're suggesting that it be very limited and that it only be undertaken after other less privacy-invasive measures have been taken, such as sending someone off for an independent medical exam.
