Access My Info (AMI) is a web application that helps people to create justified requests for copies of their personal information from service providers. AMI is a step-by-step wizard that results in the generation of a personalized formal letter requesting access to the information a provider stores and utilizes about a person. The letter can be saved as a PDF, printed, and mailed through the post, or where available, directly emailed to a company’s privacy officer.

Collaborating with Dr. Christopher Parsons, we’ve written an article for the Winston Report, a privacy-focused quarterly magazine published by the Privacy and Access Council of Canada. The article presents an analysis of responses consumers received to their right to information requests sent to Canadian telecommunications service providers through our Access my Info tool. You may download a pre-publication version of the article from the SSRN Repository.
This post describes the rationale behind the technical decisions that went into AMI’s implementation and its initial deployment with our launch outreach partner, Open Media.
