[liberationtech] The Brussels Privacy Declaration - CALL FOR SIGNATORIES

Dear Kirsten,

good initiative!

In my opinion it would be a nice idea to invite the UE Parliament to 
follow the UE Art. 29 WP recommendations, esp. regarding face 
recognition and video surveillance[1], mentioning the dangers of 
biometric data in SNs.
Considering the visual re-identification of people in real world through 
uploaded photos and face recognition the report says: <<[...] equipping 
video surveillance systems and smartphones with facial recognition 
systems based on social network databases could put an end to anonymity 
and untraced movement of individuals.>> (p.2)

TagMeNot.info  sent an open letter[2] to UE institutions back in 2011, 
asking for a "clear and well-balanced regulatory framework that could 
preserve citizens from privacy intrusions, while also providing the 
Internet industry with a consistent and transparent privacy policy 
environment in which citizens confidence, technology research and 
business can thrive".
Of course TagMeNot.info is glad to sign!

Best regards,

Alberto Cammozzo,
TagMeNot.info founder
