How private is your personal data? In a video by Chronicle, Kade Crockford, Director of the Technology for Liberty Program at the ACLU, and Danny Weitzner, Founding Director of IPRI, discuss privacy in the Internet age.

The video discusses how the apps on devices like mobile phones harvest our personal data, which can then be sold.

On this topic, Weitzner states that, “I don’t worry about the idea that institutions have information about me. I worry that there are no controls on what they can do with it; and I worry that we haven’t defined the lines clearly enough that, say, if you cross this boundary you are breaking the law.”
