    Privacy and data security

    In modern society, smartphones, computers, vehicles loaded with technology, fitness devices, and apps are a part of our everyday life. The companies that engineer these technologies process our data, including our messages and information about our location and other activities. That information is valuable. Corporations use it in many ways to secure their power in the marketplace. Personal data can be used for political purposes, to manipulate our choices, and to attract advertisers. Big Tech companies like Meta (owner of Facebook and Instagram, among others) intrude upon our private affairs and violate our privacy on a large scale by deliberately misusing our personal data.

    Dutch and European laws and regulations aim to protect the fundamental right to privacy. However, it is virtually impossible for consumers to take on Big Tech companies like Meta (including Facebook and Instagram) on their own. Regulators, too, do not always have the capacity or resources to effectively stand up to systematic violations.

    That’s why Data Privacy Stichting is taking action. It protects the privacy rights of consumers. The Data Privacy Stichting already initiated two actions against Meta. Get involved and sign up.
