Coming to a close Is there Privacy in the Future? No, for standard society issues not No, for governmental procedures not No, not for have-nots/know-nots However If you really want it, yes, by technology/knowledge If you really want it, yes, by fraud If you really want it, yes, by social engineering and then it is very successfulllllllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Should EC 95/46 be changed? EU-wide general privacy protection framework based on human rights (no business interest) different value for private and public sectors national data protection authorities is a web publication a processing of personal information should web visitors be notified of further use should police power be controlled / curbed should governmental collection be stopped
