Session host: Nicolo Zingales
Goal: This session discusses promises and challenges in Latin America for third-party agents (also known as “infomediaries”) who handle requests submitted by data subjects pursuant to data protection law.
Description: Data protection law grants individuals a number of rights in relation to their personal data and corresponding duties for “data controllers”. As demonstrated by empirical research, the effectiveness of these rights is affected by the diversity of implementation procedures adopted in the industry. This panel discusses some of the problems and zoom in a few key hurdles, such as the format of data responses, the identification of requesters, the codification of exceptions and limitations to responses.
