Using data for secondary purposes (customer devices data)
Technology law specialist Luke Scanlon had argued in favor of demanding more explicit reasons of data collectors to access data stored on customers’ devices.
“The disclosure of additional purposes for data accessed from a customer device is normally necessary to ensure that data protection laws are complied with.”
Moreover, he addressed an issue, which was also analyzed at dataitlaw.com. Is it possible to use data for a second purpose?
“If a business intends to use data for a purpose that is incompatible with the one for which it was acquired, it would need to determine whether it has a legal ground for using the data for that secondary purpose.”
Data Sharing best practices
The Information Commissioner’s Office had published a Data Sharing Code of Practice and Data Sharing Checklist. They are freely available at their website.
Their goal is to “provide practical advice to all organisations, whether public, private or third sector, that share personal data and covers systematic data sharing arrangements as well as ad hoc or one off requests to share personal data.”
A good resource for anyone, who wants to double (or triple) check its activities.
He also noted that in some countries, stricter controls are expected to take place in the end of the year.
