BRINGING HUMANITY TO DIGITAL LIFE

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

What is privacy?
In this Guide we will refer to privacy as the ability of an individual to control the use of its personal data.

Why should we protect citizens’ data?
The aim is not to protect data as such, but to protect citizens by restricting access to their data and by limiting activities that affect them. Some people say – it you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide. However, we should not confuse privacy with hiding. Privacy is a fundamental human right and therefore needs to be protected. Moreover, privacy is a mechanism for protection of other human rights and freedoms. For example, activists’ work may be put in jeopardy if their communication is monitored. Therefore, we need privacy to exercise our freedom of expression and political association. Generally speaking, democratic regimes are the ones that respect citizens’ privacy the most. Another example – What if someone you don’t trust gains access to you medical record or learns about your sexual orientation without your approval? In such cases you may become a victim of discrimination. Therefore, we protect personal data to prevent unequal treatment.

Why YOs should be pioneers in protecting citizens’ privacy?
YOs promoting values of rule of law, human rights, democracy, tolerance and open society should demonstrate adherence to such values. This relates to processing of citizens’ data as well. YOs should lead by example. It raises their credibility among beneficiaries and in the community. It increases trust and builds reputation. It makes them reliable in relations with citizens in need, because they will know that their personal data will be used properly.
