Expert Examines the Intersection of Business and Privacy
DATA PROTECTION—EUJanuary 17, 2013
Jim Sterne reports for ClickZ on what happens “when privacy and business collide.” Sterne advises those doing business internationally to be aware of individuals’ privacy rights guaranteed under the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and notes how European cookie laws have “made a shamble of European Union analytics data management” in their inconsistencies. Discussing the European Commission’s proposed data protection regulation, Sterne questions whether companies could comply with provisions such as the right to be forgotten, the right to edit data and the right to data portability. Meanwhile, the French data protection authority has said MEP Jan Philipp Albrecht’s draft report on the regulation “largely meets” its concerns.
