At the same time, these systems will bring about so far inconceivable levels of surveillance, collection of personal data, their merging and continuous transfer and processing, creating unprecedented threats to privacy and data protection.

Giving users more control of their privacy choices, making them aware of the ways in which their data will be used and doing all of this without making users dig through pages of legalese in privacy policies could give some vendors an edge, he said.
