In response to Guido Romeo

I wonder how this goes together with the idea put forward by Rob Krankenburg that we should stop talking about privacy and refer to "privacies" as many different and diverse levels of protection is granted/allowed. Would be interesting to see these experts discussing it together.


 


 

Privacy protects us from being misdefined and judged out of context in a world of short attention spans, a world in which information can easily be confused with knowledge.

In response to future hacker

As we are learning, the danger of data collection by online companies is not that they will use it to try to sell you stuff. The danger is that that information can so easily fall into the hands of parties whose motives are much less benign. A government, for example. 

I trust the government.  How about you?

Personal data is essential to so many decisions made about us, from whether we get a loan, a license or a job to our personal and professional reputations. Personal data is used to determine whether we are investigated by the government, or searched at the airport, or denied the ability to fly. Indeed, personal data affects nearly everything, including what messages and content we see on the Internet. Without having knowledge of what data is being used, how it is being used, the ability to correct and amend it, we are virtually helpless in today’s world.

Here is an interesting quote by Benjamin Franklin that addresses the value of privacy: "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Vincent,


When I was in the US I learned that the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) is in charge of protecting consumers in the US.  The agency uses law enforcement, policy initiatives, and consumer and business education to protect consumers’ personal information and ensure that they have the confidence to take advantage of the many benefits of the ever-changing marketplace.

Privacy is so misunderstood, due to all this innovations in the tech world. Now, it is not just about our name, address or phone number, it is all about the data that is collected throughout our conversations with other people, collaborating with some AI or so. Sadly, this could be used against us in the future.

Vincent Fournier

I am really interested  in privacy, but I think is very hard to regulate it correctly.


Sometimes I don't want to leave any tracks of me on the internet, sometimes I want to be helped i finding what I am looking for like, for example, when I am buying something that I am not expert in I strongly relay on suggestion engine.


Intelligence is the key: we, the users, must use intelligence when revealing information about ourself

They put in place this GDPR thing and you should read 20 pages each time you enter a new website. But then, when I go in another country, no one asks me the permission to track my phone, record my face in surveillance cameras and so on.


This privacy is much more about tracking you that guarantee your freedom.

George Waters

It seems to me privacy is all about the dynamics between individuals, the market, and the state.  Here is another interesting discussion on how the word can be defined and the fact that it really all depends on who you ask: What is Privacy.

In the US they have laws dealing with sectors rather than data in general.  I am curious to find out who the European Union will decide should be responsible for protecting my data in the EU.

Martin D. Hoffmann

They say, “whenever you are not paying for service you are the product”.  That still holds true in the world of IT where we pay a pretty penny for things such as phones, tablets, and broadband connections.  It sounds odd but it is a fact.

Fabricio Ruiz

It seems companies collect more data than I am willingly providing.  Is that true and do I have any say in how they use my data?

Olena Matey

Very interesting example with Donald Trump’s Muslim database and the experiment carried out by Amnesty International.  Thank you for sharing it with us.
