What Does Data Privacy Mean to You?

What Does Data Privacy Mean to You? 562 310 StJohn Deakins

Our rapidly evolving digital world has left traditional definitions of privacy in its wake. As digital citizens, we are left to grapple with shifting boundaries on what information we consider public and what should remain private. Meanwhile, big data, commercial organisations and governments alike all seek to test our tolerance for what’s acceptable and what isn’t when using our personal data, content and digital identities. So how can we find out more about our current attitudes to data privacy amid such change?

Lydia Nicholas is pursuing an MSc in Digital Anthropology at UCL and as part of her research she has created a short survey: Understanding and Managing Data Privacy.  We hope you’ll participate and help to shed some much-needed light on this important subject.

You can take the survey HERE.

If you are happy to be interviewed either face-to-face, over the phone, or online (over encrypted services if you prefer) please contact Lydia directly at lydia.nicholas.12@ucl.ac.uk

We think this is a great opportunity to share your opinions, make any concerns know about the direction that data privacy is heading in, and outline suggestions for better control your data.

Thanks for taking part!
