Individuals rightly perceive that they lack control over how information about them is collected, shared, or used in today’s digital economy. A Pew Research survey found that 91% of those surveyed believed that they have lost control over how personal information is used by companies, and similarly large percentages of Americans express concerns about the accuracy of this information. Granting individuals affirmative rights with respect to their personal information is one mechanism to address these fears.
