Ethics Project Internet Privacy Overview

Ethics Project Internet Privacy Overview

Project: Internet Privacy
“Our smartphones and other devices that connect to the Internet enable us to share our information,
such as where we are, what we’ve eaten, who we’re friends with, when we’ve exercised, and what
we’re interested in. In essence, we’ve become a public society. And studies show that for the most part,
we don’t care about being open. But, should we? It’s not just our friends and families that we’re sharing
this information with. Governments and companies are listening, too, and we’ve learned that often they
can’t be trusted in how they collect and use our data.

In many cases, we agree to privacy terms when we
want to use a device or software. We’ve come to accept that there’s a trade-off between being able to
use a device or software and giving up some level of privacy. But is this the way it should be? Can we
have smart devices that offer us great conveniences while preserving our fundamental right to
privacy? Who is ultimately responsible for controlling our privacy:

we or the companies that make the
devices?” (Evans A., Martin, K., Poatsy, M.A., 2018: page 124)1
