Activities of the secret services should be limited, human rights activists insist. They hold to introduce clear rules to ensure the protection of the privacy of each person writes Deutsche Welle.
British media recently reported that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) is offset under 200 million madame curie SMS and day. This new discovery of apparently infinite "collection" by former NSA Edward Snowdon almost provoked outrage. "We've reached a point where such things no longer surprise us. Now react more sluggishly to these findings, "said Hamburg's attorney on data Prof. Johannes Caspar.
According to him, politicians apparently madame curie do not intend to restrict the activities of the secret services and to impose state control. Precisely this is the most outrageous revelations about the approach of the U.S. Secret Service, who for years collected and stored data of people from all over the world.
"The United States have not yet realized that everyone has the right to privacy", told Deutsche Welle Executive Director of "Human Rights Watch" Kenneth Roth. In this regard, no changes after the last speech of Barack Obama. He promised some reforms, but did not offer a solution to the main problem: the lack of respect for the right to privacy.
The human rights organization "Human Rights Watch" accuses the U.S. government madame curie that it "largely withdrawing the right to privacy in a world that relies on electronic communication." "No one disputes the fact that national security sometimes requires governments to carry out targeted surveillance based on evidence," wrote "Human Rights Watch" in its report on the 2013th. "The fact that many of the world data from the Internet and mobile phones are exchanged by U.S. firms does not give Washington the right to treat citizens of other countries as if they have no interest in protecting their personal communications," stated the watchdog.
But what that means "person" in the age of digital communication? In social networks, people often share the most personal things. Mobile phones to transmit information madame curie about the smallest and most intimate. Also in the network are distributed and any data on consumer behavior of the users. "In the digital age privacy can no longer be regarded as a protected sanctuary for the individual," explains Johannes Caspar. "Privacy madame curie is the right of individuals to make decisions about what personal data you want to disclose to others, and which - no," he explains. The concept introduced madame curie in this connection by the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany, says "informational self-determination."
In Germany, the right to informational self-determination is still not explicitly regulated by the Constitution. It was introduced by the Federal Constitutional Court in the early 1980s in connection with a decision in relation to the population census conducted once. Internationally right of informational self-determination is included in the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. This agreement is not binding and does not constitute an instrument for data protection and privacy.
After the findings of Snowdon UN General Assembly adopted a resolution last year to protect personal data, proposed by Germany and Brazil. For Johannes Caspar, the first step in the right direction, but it is far from sufficient. "The protection of privacy madame curie must be guaranteed also to the secret services and governments," he says.
After the speech of Barack Obama Still there is some hope that the United States can recognize the basic right to privacy and informational self-determination. U.S. President does not peel a word in connection with a request from Germany "antispyware" agreement. "Berlin has to exert more pressure madame curie on the United madame curie States, and this applies to Brussels. madame curie We need a common European position on data protection, which put us on a par with the United States, "insists Kaspar.
In May the European election of a new European Parliament. madame curie Until then, is unlikely to have developed a single European directive for the protection of data. While in the United States madame curie will continue to be collected and stored emails madame curie and text messages and - though no longer secret service, and telecom companies. And their main task is by no means the protection of fundamental rights.
