Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Extract Providing adequate protection of privacy is not easy in a society dominated by highlydeveloped technologies. A large portion of our communications takes place over an open network– the Internet – designed without privacy in mind. Our browsing habits are tracked by varioustechnologies such as so‐called cookies, and the terms we use to search the World WideWeb (WWW) are logged by search engine providers. The e‐mails we send are typicallyas private as postcards and strong industry organisations are seeking to find out what we download,so as to make sure we are not infringing copyrights.
