2.5. Such invasion of privacy by way of either surveillance and or interception of

2.6. Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act [Chapter 10:27]

The protection of privacy, together with the constitutional limitations

the public a right to request correction of misrepresented personal information;

2.6.4. The Act protects personal privacy and personal information more particularly

person's age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status or family status; an
