Why blog about personal data protection?

Pdp is privacy in a new era, although many argue that the right to privacy and the right to the protection of personal data are two separate rights. That is an endless debate and therefore one of the good reasons to start a blog about pdp.

I would rather not separate pdp from privacy issues and this is why my blog will also tackle privacy related subjects while concentrating on personal data protection legal developments around the world.

In order to answer the question in the title of this post, I will tell you why you should read pdp news and comments: because you need to know how to handle all your personal information shared knowingly or unknowingly with public authorities, governments, marketing companies, insurance agencies, social networks, telecommunication companies, schools and universities, banks, online stores and all the other public or private entities that store and manage any kind of information about you – starting with name and address, to health condition, ethnicity, photos, appearance, religion, phone calls you made, where you work and even what you like to eat.

Most of the information published here will have a legal approach because of who I am – a PhD student writing a thesis about personal data protection. But you will find much more than legal commentary. Enjoy!
