BECAUSE PRIVACY IS A HUMAN RIGHT, SO WE FIGHT FOR IT
Data Protection and Privacy
People demand greater control of their personal data, especially as they learn more about the potential and real uses and misuses by an array of corporate actors
Unwanted Witness has been leading the way on issues around privacy, data, and society for the past 9 years, and is driving conversations on what policies and principles are needed around the next generation of data-driven technologies. We call for reasonable limits on the use of sensitive data and believe individuals must have greater rights to control their data.
Unwanted Witness is shaping innovative, rights-centered policies for the future through a number of activities.Privacy Symposium
Yes To Compliance
During the #DataPrivacyWeek of 2022, we moderated an online campaign dubbed #YesToCompliance that encouraged data protectors and data processors to respect the privacy rights of the data subjects.
We collaborated with other stakeholders in the civic space such as Digital Human Rights Lab (DHRLab), Barefoot Law, and Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET). The campaign also sought to encourage Ugandans to stand up for the right to privacy by encouraging data processors and collectors to comply with the data protection and privacy policies.
The campaign integrated a series of descriptive illustrations, radio talk shows, and TV shows to publicize the messages to the public.
