Some say user data is the new oil, such are the potential profits to be made from its harvest. Just as pertinently, user data is an important political currency. In fact, it runs much deeper than oil, as we’ve seen in recent electoral scandals that have only hinted at the power of the analysis and exploitation of online data. Corporations and governments alike are familiar with the concept of unscrupulously adapting their marketing techniques to sway the behavior of online users. We can only imagine what else they might do with this data in the future. In the meantime, data protection laws have come into place to try to keep a check on these powers. The laws require technology companies to be transparent about how they use and share your data with governments.
