Today it became known that the competence center for the Digital Economy program has developed the concept of a draft law on access to data for users of social networks. This document assumes the introduction of the responsibility of Internet sites for the safety of user data from closed profiles. The developers of the bill believe that social networks can monopolize the data market, therefore they offer certain measures to overcome this situation.
The document proposes informing users of the user’s account’s Internet sites about the type of social network. For example, if the site is open, the user must agree that his data will become publicly available to an unlimited number of people.
“The bill threatens the confidentiality of the information of Russian Internet users; in fact, it allows any third-party organizations to collect data without their demand. Our team is confident that every person has the right to independently determine what information and with whom to share, ”a Vkontakte representative said.
“If data will be transferred to third parties for commercial use and without the consent of the users, no one can guarantee protection against their malicious use. At the same time, users will not be able to control in any way what information about them is currently available, ”the Odnoklassniki say.
As for the concept of regulating the turnover of user data, there is no text yet. According to representatives of the Digital Economy Autonomous Non-Profit Organization, the business has only begun to discuss the main points of this concept. The content will be determined by the business community with the support of government representatives. 3r373.
