Day 1- Policy and Regulatory Framework on Privacy and Data Protection

Thank you Gerishon and Matthew.

@Gerishon, on consent:
The draft policy indicates that fairness means that the data subjects (you
and me) are informed of 1. the name of the data controller (the person who
determines the purpose and means of data collection) and 2. the purpose for
which data is being collected.

Consent is also dealt with under Clause 27 of the draft bill. Here is a
follow up question :

*What amounts to ‘consent’? When can it be said that one has agreed to have
their data collected and processed in a certain manner? *

@Matthew thanks for flagging the inequity between small and large scale
controllers. I wonder whether it would have been useful to acknowledge
innovation as one of the principles. The documents do set a restrictive
tone I note- leaning towards restricting the collection of data as opposed
to encouraging it. Eg the principles of data minimization and storage
limitation will not allow controllers to collect data that would be
considered ‘extra’ or ‘luxurious’. Is there a way to balance the two-
protection of privacy vis-a-vis promoting innovation through aggressive
research?

Listers, I would like to hear from more of you.
