This chapter examines data protection, digitization of data, its implications for personal privacy, and the regulation of data industries. It begins by discussing the current law found, post Brexit in the UK General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. It examines the key concepts of data controllers, data processors, and data subjects, and discusses the conditions for the processing of personal data. This includes an examination of key cases such as Nowak v Data Protection Commissioner, the Facebook fan page case, and Bodil Lindqvist. It looks at the geographical scope of UK GDPR and the extra-territorial effect of the Regulation and examines the domestic purposes exemption after Ryneš. It examines questions of fairness and lawfulness of processing as discussed in Johnson v Medical Defence Union.
