DATA PROTECTION DAY (28 January)
Data Protection Day : Why? For Whom? Activities
You go somewhere, you buy something, you apply for a job, you pay your bills : you live ... and at each of those moments of your life, your personal information is used, collected, processed. In order to protect your right to private life, with regard to the automatic processing of your personal data, the Council of Europe elaborated the "Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data".
30 years after its entry into force, this Convention still remains the only binding international legal instrument in the field, with a potential worldwide scope of application.
