On International Data Privacy Day, [28 January], it is important that we all ask ourselves: who has access to our personal information? Who can find out where we've been and who we've called, who can read our emails and our text messages? Who can find which websites we access and which files we download? Statistics released by Google and Twitter over the past week are a sobering reminder that it is not only the corporations to which we consensually provide this information which are able to access it. Governments regularly approach these and other internet companies seeking the opportunity to delve into our personal lives.
