Internet users need to choose privacy or convenience

By Eunice Ng, 18th October, 2016


An e-marketing founder said the passing of General Data protection in European Union is good as it can let the citizens have right to protect privacy or not.


Harry Lui, founder of Smark Global (Holdings) Limited, a E-marking company, said European Union passed the General Data protection is good as it can let the citizens have right to choose.


“Nowadays, Facebook and Google are analyzing user’s behavior pattern by upload photos, browsing habit and email account. They provide some advertisements to users when they are surfing the net,” he said.


“If users chose to protect privacy under the General Data protection, they need to give up the convenience in daily life as the technology will not be able to analyze the users’ habit,” he added.


Comment:

A businessman, who built his fortune on Internet marketing, believes Hong Kong should introduce “right to be forgotten” into local law.

Harry Lui, founder of a company specialises on Internet marketing, said the law would enhance privacy protection.

The right to be forgotten was introduced in the laws of the European Union in recent years, allowing individuals to demand Internet service providers to eliminate their records on the ground of privacy protection. However, the law was heavily criticised by campaigners advocating open governments for severely weakening the public’s right on access to information and the press’s ability to monitor power.


Also you should think whether the notion put forward by the speaker is a correct one. It is "about "right to be forgotten" can protect our privacy. How about the damages on the press monitoring power and the public's access to information? How about the negative impact of these rights in the face of "right to be forgotten"? Then, can "right to be forgotten" really able to protect our privacy? Is it the only way to protect our privacy? How about laws to monitor the sales of our data collected by these internet companies? How about law that can protect our privacy without compromising our right to information?
