Let's talk about privacy


The Forum des Droits sur l'Internet, in coordination with the CNIL, has launched an online consultation about privacy on the internet. Internet users can exchange views in an open forum until January 15 on four main topics:

  • Can I control my image and my identity on the Web?
  • Why do others care about my private life?
  • What room is there for my privacy towards State authorities?
  • How can privacy be improved in the coming digital world?

As part of this sensitization initiative, public debates with VIPs will be organized in Bordeaux, Lyon, and Paris. This effort to involve citizens in thinking about the privacy consequences of the digital revolution will culminate in a report.
