Abstract / Description

Issue paper of the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe.

"The right to privacy is an integral part of the right to respect for private life, as guaranteed by Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights: it also encompasses a more special right, usually referred to in terms of “data protection”. This special right does not only concern protecting individuals from intrusions into their privacy or private life, but also more broadly is about guarding against the improper collecting, storing, sharing and use of their data. It addresses the central issue in the “information society” of the extent of control by data controllers over individuals –tellingly referred to as “data subjects” - through possession of their data. The increasing importance given to this right is reflected in the case-law of both the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice." (Introduction)
