Abstract

The rapid development of new information and communication technologies has changed people’s everyday life and consumption patterns significantly. The worldwide spread of those technologies provides many innovations for consumers, but it can also bear risks, such as the indiscriminate collection, storage and cross-border flow of personal data, illegal spying on Internet activities, dissemination of personal information, and abuse of user passwords. The study deals with the current state of consumer data protection law in Brazil, China and Germany from a comparative perspective. It covers the main legal issues of consumer privacy and data protection in these countries and seeks to explain current issues and case law concerning consumer data protection from a practical perspective.

Abstract

Erstmalig thematisiert das Buch das in China weit verbreitete Phänomen Ren-rou-sou-suo (Menschenfleischsuche) auch in Deutschland. Als Hexenjagd im Internet ist dieses weltweite Phänomen auch in Deutschland in den nächsten Jahren zu erwarten. Aufgrund potenzieller Persönlichkeitsrechtsverletzungen und Datenschutzprobleme ist es hoch regulierungsbedürftig. Der Autor analysiert die Hintergründe der Suche in beiden Ländern unter technischen, kulturellen, sozialen, politischen und psychologischen Aspekten. Er untersucht und beantwortet rechtsvergleichend und detailliert alle diesbezüglichen Rechtsfragen einschließlich Providerhaftung, Anonymität und Pseudonymität, Auskunftsanspruch auf Anmeldedaten von Nutzern, Notice and take down sowie Störerhaftung.

Abstract

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaced the old and battered Data Protection Directive on 25 May 2018 after a long-drawn reform. The rapidly evolving technological landscape will test the ability of the GDPR to effectively achieve the goals of protecting personal data and the free movement of data. This book proposes a technological supplement to achieve the goal of data protection as enshrined in the GDPR. The proposal comes in the form of digital identity management platforms built on blockchain technology. However, the very structure of blockchain poses some significant challenges in terms of compatibility with the GDPR. Accordingly, the claim of GDPR being a technologically neutral legislation is examined. The compatibility of a blockchain-based solution is scrutinised on the parameters of data protection principles like accountability, data minimisation, control and data protection by design in conjunction with the right to be forgotten and right to data portability.

Abstract

Der Autor untersucht, ob geltendes Recht in Europa, Deutschland und Chile personenbezogene Daten in sozialen Netzwerken hinreichend vor Missbrauch schützt. Hierbei widmet er sich vertieft dem Vergleich deutscher und europäischer Regelungen mit der Rechtslage in Chile, zwei sehr unterschiedlichen Rechtsordnungen und technologisch komplizierten Sachverhalten. Der Fokus des Buches liegt auf der Untersuchung des Datenschutzes speziell in sozialen Netzwerken und auf der Beleuchtung der internationalen Dimension dieses Phänomens. So leistet der Autor einen rechtswissenschaftlichen Beitrag mit grenzüberschreitendem Blickwinkel zu dem Thema Datenschutz.

Abstract

This research introduces a conceptual framework for enforcing privacy-related restrictions in smart video surveillance systems based on danger levels and incident types to be handled. It increases the selectivity of surveillance by restricting data processing to individuals associated to incidents under investigation. Constraints are enforced by usage control, which is instantiated for video surveillance for the first time and enables tailoring such systems to comply with data protection law.

Abstract

The technical design of security systems has a high impact on its acceptance. To understand the influencing factors, an acceptance model for smart video surveillance is developed. To improve acceptance different technical components are designed and implemented. Lastly they are integrated into a prototype for fall detection in hospital environments and evaluated for the acceptance. The book combined theoretical work on understanding acceptance with practical work into developing new systems.

Abstract

Segurament poques qüestions són tan rellevants per als ciutadans usuaris de la sanitat com les dades personals de salut. En poc temps, la vulnerabilitat d’aquestes dades s’ha aguditzat per la implementació de les històries clíniques compartides i dipositades en un cloud sanitari que, si bé facilita l’accés a la informació dels malalts, no garanteix que el titular de la informació tingui prou coneixement sobre quines dades es comparteixen, qui les comparteix i per quins motius. En aquest llibre Lídia Buisan, metgessa i advocada, proposa amb valentia un replantejament del secret mèdic en la relació assistencial dins el marc de la història clínica compartida, així com una reconsideració del paper dels metges, que han de vetllar pel respecte a la intimitat dels ciutadans.
