Reclaim Our Privacy
La Quadrature du Net (2014): Reclaim Your Privacy.
"Reclaim Our Privacy" is a three-minute movie that explains the threat to, the importance of protecting, and the tools to reclaim our privacy online. The movie ist part of a campaign (https://www.laquadrature.net/en/personnal-data/), which fights against the commodification of our personal data: so that no business may spy on our behaviour and manipulate us for commercial or political ends, especially by choosing what advertising and information we receive. It fights to prevent any decision about our lives (work, credit, study, etc.) from being taken automatically on the basis of these data. This tool aims to raise awareness, foster understanding and critical reflection of big data practices. Moreover, the video calls for changes, encourages the viewer to take action and provides links with further information. However, due its generally negative tone, it is recommended to combine this tool with further indepth and more productive tools on big data and privacy.
