Ep 5. Privacy in a Digital World
Play • 47 min

Privacy enables us to create boundaries and protect ourselves from unwarranted interference in our lives, allowing us to negotiate who we are and how we want to interact with the world around us.

The right to privacy is a fundamental human right articulated in all of the major international and regional human rights instruments

But what does that mean?

What should companies be doing to ensure personal privacy?

And what do the changing regulations, include the NZ Privacy act, actualy mean?
