Some Canadian provinces have "passed legislation designed to protect private information from sweeping powers outlined in the U.S. Patriot Act, which compels American companies to turn over virtually any information that the U.S. government requests.". This affects many public institutions in Canada.
CivicReady ensures that our Canadian clients's data is safe and in accordance with Canadian laws:
- For our Canadian customers, we have all data hosted by a Canadian company (Peer 1), only using servers in Canada. Because the company is Canadian, it is only subject to Canadian laws.
