How are our rights and privacy affected by the personal information that the internet holds about us?
Information and communication technologies have revolutionised all professions and aspects of life. At the same time, they also carry a risk in terms of the right to privacy, affecting the protection of personal data. We must take into account the amount of personal data that exists of any person on the internet today, and the potential impact on our rights.
What is the purpose of the new European Data Protection Regulation? Privacy?
The European Union has much interest in defending the rights of citizens and it is aware of the problems arising around the existing data flows. It has therefore responded to this situation through the implementation of the new General Regulation on Data Protection (GPDR). Hence, this regulation imposes new requirements that are more demanding when it comes to guaranteeing the privacy of the people with whom we have dealings. This is our fundamental right.
