Ideas around privacy

  • Secret: Ability of someone to control the personal data gathering and usage. One school of thoughts toward being suspicious about hiding, the other being that it is part of individual freedom rights.
  • Calmness: Possibility for someone to not be disturbed in the daily life, with a control on the ability of people accessing you. It includes the seek for being forgotten.
  • Individual autonomy: Ability to take important decisions in a way that enable self expression and diverse intimate relationships
