Abstract

I would like to present aspects related to violations of privacy and also accomplishments to protect privacy in online environments. Some important topics covered, are as they follow: violation of privacy by searching and seizing digital property belonging to individuals; profiling of marginalized groups, targets of specific ethnic, gender or age groups; biometric data saving according to which large groups of populations are monitored and penalized; censorship in countries like Turkey and China, where internet and free speech are censored; business surveillance and big data businesses where companies are accused of violating users' privacy and reducing freedom of expression.

In my paper I would also like to bring some light on the efforts to protect privacy, by the government and also through a multinational collaboration where entire nations are bonding to establish privacy-by-design controls like the GDP Regulation adopted by the European Union.
