This class action alleges that Bell Mobility breached some Bell Mobility and Virgin Mobile Canada customers’ privacy rights by using their personal information without consent for a proposed marketing initiative called the Relevant Advertising Program (RAP). There has been no determination by the court regarding the merits of the plaintiffs’ claims. Bell Mobility maintains that it did not breach any privacy laws and/or obligations, and denies that any customer received a targeted advertisement pursuant to the RAP or that Bell Mobility disclosed any personal information to third parties.
