People are real owners of their data not companies: TRAI

NEW DELHI, JUL 16 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 7/17/2018 12:19:25 AM IST
Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on Monday made its stand clear around the debate over ‘user data privacy’, saying no one besides consumers can be the real owners of data and that the companies holding information about them are nothing but its “custodians”. Saying the present norms around the user data privacy in India are not enough, TRAI stressed that consumers should be given the choice to safeguard their privacy.
“The right to choice, notice, consent, data portability, and right to be forgotten should be conferred upon the consumers,” TRAI recommended to Department of Telecom.
TRAI made it clear that telecom companies need to make their ‘consent mechanism’ more transparent to ensure the consumers of digital services can take decisions based on sufficient choices put forth. It also suggested that all digital entities, including telecom operators, should clearly disclose information about the privacy breaches on their websites.
