Persistence vs identifiable
- Short lived data are less sensitive even if it belongs to an identifiable person.
Aspects of Privacy and ownership of data
- it would be worthwhile to highlight that there are elements of privacy that relate to individuals’ ownership of their data; control over their data; awareness of the existence of that data, who accesses it, and who holds it; and the mechanisms used to ensure the privacy of said data.
- do not consider the "ownership" of data. AFAIK there is no privacy law that includes the concept of data ownership. It's not a helpful abstraction.
- trying to define privacy in terms of data "ownership" is unlikely to be productive;
- defining it in terms of "data about me" does take us further, but - I would argue - not far enough;
- my privacy is also impacted by data about others.
Natural vs juridical persons
- Doesn't juridical persons also have privacy?
- No they do not, they have confidentiality and other legal protection
Privacy as unobservability
- the defintion of privacy to mean “A state free from observation”, if we are able to design systems and proceess that achieve this principle that would be excellent.
- That definition have problems ie this definition of privacy make it difficult to build a "private" electronic health record, for instance.
