World Ozone Day--September 16

This World Ozone Day, celebrates three decades of different nations coming together to protect the ozone layer from CFC emissions under the Montreal Protocol. 

Our privacy is as fragile & crucial as the ozone. The biggest challenge faced by individuals today is ‘data breach’. Remember Facebook-Cambridge Analytica data scandal? That led to the regulation for data protection & GDPR came into effect on May 25th, 2018. GDPR regulates companies’ rights to use the data of people living in the EU.

The GDPR impact resulted in increased awareness among individuals about their data rights. Tech giants Facebook & Google were fined after failing to sufficiently inform consumers about collecting data used in online ads.

Organisations are actually realizing that with greater power (data), comes greater responsibility (transparency). These regulations should be kept in check for a healthier ecosystem.

So, do remember to revisit your own privacy policy that you use for your social media ads as you reflect on this.
