Privacy and data protection are considered fundamental rights on the International Level and also on many National Jurisdictions. Privacy refers to the part of our lives which we, as natural and legal persons, want to control and keep to ourselves. The right to privacy is an umbrella concept that contains many meanings. It protects our communications, home, work, body, and life secrecy, among other things. It protects our dignity, freedom, liberty, and autonomy so that we can develop intimate relationships with others and achieve personal prosperity and well-being.
In today’s era, new technologies have been widely deployed in all aspects of life. Many new technologies can be privacy-invading if they are misused or abused, such as CCTV, IoT, government surveillance, etc. That is why it is essential to be aware and learn about Data Privacy.
