Fair Information Practices (FIPS)

The Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) proposed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are the result of an enquiry to promote the adequate handling of personal information in information systems.


1. Notice/Awareness: Subjects should be given notice of the collection of personal information from them before it takes place.

2. Choice/Consent: Subjects should be given the choice of cancelling the collection of their personal information.

3. Access/Participation: Subjects should be allowed to access their personal information that has been collected.

4. Integrity/Security Information collectors should ensure that the information they collect is accurate and secure.

5. Enforcement/Redress: In order to ensure that the Fair Information Practice Principles are applied, there must be enforcement measures available to the Subjects.
