  • Privacy is all about control — personal control over the use and disclosure of one’s personal information
  • The German term “informational self-determination” captures this very well. 
  • Privacy refers to the right for a person to control the data or information related to the person, not the personal data or information itself.
  • Defining privacy from the perspective of right to control is that it facilitates the harmonization in legislation
  • The feeling of being in control resonates! It also allows context to play a significant role.
  • Privacy is about disclosure, in a specific context, with expectations concerning the scope and purpose of use of the data" (Internet Society)
