What is the PRIVACY Forum?

The PRIVACY Forum includes e-mailed messages and associated materials (along with an archive including some of these items) for the discussion and analysis of issues relating to privacy (both personal and collective) in the information age. Topics include telecommunications, information and database collection and sharing, and a wide range of other privacy issues, as pertains to the privacy concerns of individuals, groups, businesses, government, and society at large. The manners in which both the conventional and the controversial concerns of business and government interact with privacy considerations are also relevant topics. There is no charge to receive any of these materials.

The PRIVACY Forum is supported in part by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) Committee on Computers and Public Policy and Telos Systems. These organizations do not operate or control the PRIVACY Forum in any manner, and their support does not imply agreement on their part with nor responsibility for any materials posted on or related to the PRIVACY Forum.

The goal of PRIVACY Forum is to present a useful resource for both individuals and organizations.

All messages and other items represent the views of their individual authors.
