Everything, from our music tastes and shopping habits to our faces and fingerprints, is up for grabs in the business of big data.
But who exactly owns this data? How will it be used? And what impact will this ever-increasing digital footprint have on our lives?
These are the questions that todays special guest started to ask & her name is Pippa King.
Pippa King is a music teacher, housewife, mother and privacy crusader. Pippa campaigns against intrusions to children’s privacy in education. From 1999-2013 schools in the UK had been taking children’s biometric data without consultation or consent from parents. Since Pippa became aware of this she has campaigned relentlessly against schools using children’s biometrics and for parents to have openness and transparency on the use of their children’s data.
As a result of lobbying MPs the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 was passed in May 2012 which requires that schools must now gain written parental consent if they wish to store/process a child’s biometric data. She continues to raise awareness of the wider implications on adult society with biometrics and RFID technology, pushing for debate and transparency. Pippa is the author of Biometrics in schools and Against RFID in schools blogs.
