Thank you, Mr. Johnson, for being here today.
Are there any differences in how you operate in Canada versus the U.S., or are you mainly based out of the U.S. and that's where all the information ends up when Canadians are using your service?

[Inaudible—Editor] by PayPal customers are stored within U.S. data centres and localized data housing, so localization of data of Canadian customers is also contained within the U.S.-hosted facilities.

To clarify, there's no difference in how you operate when it comes to Canadian customers versus the American customers, right?

Other than localization for currency or for other preferences that are localized, the data and information is stored the same as that of U.S.-based customers.

You mentioned data portability in your comments in passing. We've heard that might be an answer to competition antitrust issues. We've heard that it's certainly a component of the GDPR.
Others coming before us have recently talked about not only portability but interoperability. Would you support a change of law here in Canada to require data portability and interoperability?

I mentioned the data transfer project in my opening remarks. The data transfer project is a solid attempt to start addressing that challenge.
We've long had both the data liberation front and then data takeout tools that allow our users to export their information so they can be used in a different service. The data transfer project is in concert with Facebook and Microsoft and Twitter and hopefully others. It's to enable you in effect to transfer your information from Google services to another service almost seamlessly.

You've never taken data that you gathered through one client and transferred it and used it for another client?

What's your opinion with regard to third party use of accumulated data by political parties? One of the things I have a concern about, and I think Canadians do as well, with regard to Facebook and other data accumulation models, is the unknown fact of where data can go and how it can be used. It would require a major policing effort to try to even enforce such laws.
At any rate, how egregious do you think that is for democracy, the fact that political parties can either bring in third parties or use third parties to augment, support, and use the data they have?

To your first point about transfers of data, I think this is where the rules concerning the GDPR are so relevant. Europeans are insisting, of course, that for any data transferred to Canada there be strong onward transfer restrictions. Facebook and other private sector organizations have to comply with those rules. That's point number one.
With respect to the rules about consent and political parties, I think that bringing the entire ecosystem, if you like, into a similar set of rules would allow an organization like the Privacy Commissioner to see the entire picture in the way that the Information Commissioner in the U.K., at the moment Elizabeth Denham, is able to do.

No, we don't transfer that information to anyone, other than back to the people who provided it to us.

Part of what has transpired has been because of one survey, but I'm sure multiple surveys occurred. Has there been any data transfer between Cambridge Analytica and AIQ not only on this topic, but on other subjects?
