For Google, Facebook, & phone companies, the regulator offers a clear statement: "Each user owns his/ her personal information/ data collected by/ stored with the entities in the digital ecosystem. The entities, controlling and processing such data, are mere custodians and do not have primary rights over this data." This applies to "all entities in the digital ecosystem, which control or process their personal data."
Potentially important, "The Right to Choice, Notice, Consent, Data Portability, and Right to be forgotten should be conferred upon the telecommunication consumers." Data Portability is crucial to any large-scale challenge to Facebook's near monopoly, althought that remains a difficult task.
TRAI other sensible suggestions include:
"It should have provisions for revoking the consent, at a later date, by users."
"Multilingual, easy to understand, unbiased, short templates of agreements/ terms and conditions be made mandatory."Add a comment
