From the Executive Summary [page xiii], and also from Section 5.2 [page 49]
- Recommendation 1 [consider uses over collections activites]
Policy attention should focus more on the actual uses of big data and less on its collection and analysis.
- Recommendation 2 [no Microsoft lockin; no national champion]
Policies and regulation, at all levels of government, should not embed particular technological solutions, but rather should be stated in terms of intended outcomes.
- Recommendation 3 [fund]
With coordination and encouragement from [The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy] OSTP, the [Networking and Information Technology Research and Development] NITRD agencies should strengthen U.S. research in privacy‐related technologies and in the relevant areas of social science that inform the successful application of those technologies.
- Recommendation 4 [talk]
OSTP, together with the appropriate educational institutions and professional societies, should encourage increased education and training opportunities concerning privacy protection, including career paths for professionals.
- Recommendation 5 [talk & buy]
The United States should take the lead both in the international arena and at home by adopting policies that stimulate the use of practical privacy‐protecting technologies that exist today. It can exhibit leadership both by its convening power (for instance, by promoting the creation and adoption of standards) and also by its own procurement practices (such as its own use of privacy‐preserving cloud services)

Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights (CPBR)
Obligations [of service providers, as powerful organizations]
- Respect for Context => use consistent with collection context.
- Focused Collection => limited collection.
- Security => handling techniques
- Accountability => handling techniques.
Empowerments [of consumers, as individuals]
- Individual Control => control of collection, control of use.
- Transparency => of practices [by service providers]
- Access and Accuracy => right to review & edit [something about proportionality]
Definition of Privacy
The definition is unclear and evolving. It is frequently defined in terms of the harms in curred when it is lost.
Privacy Framework of Via Harms
The Prosser Harms, <quote> page 6.
- Intrusion upon seclusion. A person who intentionally intrudes, physically or otherwise (now including electronically), upon the solitude or seclusion of another person or her private affairs or concerns, can be subject to liability for the invasion of her privacy, but only if the intrusion would be highly offensive to a reasonable person.
- Public disclosure of private facts. Similarly, a person can be sued for publishing private facts about another person, even if those facts are true. Private facts are those about someone’s personal life that have not previously been made public, that are not of legitimate public concern, and that would be offensive to a reasonable person.
- “False light” or publicity. Closely related to defamation, this harm results when false facts are widely published about an individual. In some states, false light includes untrue implications, not just untrue facts as such.
- Misappropriation of name or likeness. Individuals have a “right of publicity” to control the use of their name or likeness in commercial settings.
<quote>One perspective informed by new technologies and technology‐mediated communication suggests that privacy is about the “continual management of boundaries between different spheres of action and degrees of disclosure within those spheres,” with privacy and one’s public face being balanced in different ways at different times. See: Leysia Palen, Paul Dourish; Unpacking ‘Privacy’ for a Networked World; In Proceedings of CHI 2003, Association for Computing Machinery, 2003-04-05.</quote>, footnote, page 7.
An oppositional framework wherein harms are “adjacent to” benefits:
- Invasion of private communications
- Invasion of privacy ihn a person’s virtual home.
- Public disclosure of inferred private facts
- Tracking, stalking and violations of locational privacy.
- Harm arising from false conclusions about individuals, based on personal profiles from big‐data analytics.
- Foreclosure of individual autonomy or self‐determination
- Loss of anonymity and private association.

- See references within Mosaic theory of intelligence gathering in Jimi Wales’ Wiki.
Definition of Roles [of data processors]
- data collectors
- data analyzers
- data users
The data generators or producers in this roles framework are substantially only customers or consumers (sic).
- Definition of analysis versus use
- <quote>Analysis, per se, does not directly touch the individual (it is neither collection nor, without additional action, use) and may have no external visibility.
- & by contrast, it is the use of a product of analysis, whether in commerce, by government, by the press, or by individuals, that can cause adverse consequences to individuals.</quote>
- Big Data => definitions
- [comprises data with] high‐volume, high‐velocity and high‐variety
information assets that demand cost‐effective, innovative forms of information processing for enhanced insight and decision making,” attributed to Gartner Inc.
- a term describing the storage and analysis of large and/or complex data sets using a series of techniques including, but not limited to, NoSQL, MapReduce, and machine learning.” attributed to “computer scientists” on arXiv.
- [comprises data with] high‐volume, high‐velocity and high‐variety
The strong, direct, unequivocal, un-nuanced, provocative language…
<quote>For a variety of reasons, PCAST judges anonymization, data deletion, and distinguishing data from metadata (defined below) to be in this category. The framework of notice and consent is also becoming unworkable as a useful foundation for policy.</quote>
<quote>Anonymization is increasingly easily defeated by the very techniques that are being developed for many legitimate applications of big data. In general, as the size and diversity of available data grows, the likelihood of being able to re‐identify individuals (that is, re‐associate their records with their names) grows substantially. While anonymization may remain somewhat useful as an added safeguard in some situations, approaches that deem it, by itself, a sufficient safeguard need updating. </quote>
<quote>Notice and consent is the practice of requiring individuals to give positive consent to the personal data collection practices of each individual app, program, or web service. Only in some fantasy world do users actually read these notices and understand their implications before clicking to indicate their consent. <snip/>The conceptual problem with notice and consent is that it fundamentally places the burden of privacy protection on the individual. Notice and consent creates a non‐level playing field in the implicit privacy negotiation between provider and user. The provider offers a complex, take‐it‐or‐leave‐it set of terms, while the user, in practice, can allocate only a few seconds to evaluating the offer. This is a kind of market failure. </quote>
<quote>Also rapidly changing are the distinctions between government and the private sector as potential threats to individual privacy. Government is not just a “giant corporation.” It has a monopoly in the use of force; it has no direct competitors who seek market advantage over it and may thus motivate it to correct missteps. Governments have checks and balances, which can contribute to self‐imposed limits on what they may do with people’s information. Companies decide how they will use such information in the context of such factors as competitive advantages and risks, government regulation, and perceived threats and consequences of lawsuits. It is thus appropriate that there are different sets of constraints on the public and private sectors. But government has a set of authorities – particularly in the areas of law enforcement and national security – that place it in a uniquely powerful position, and therefore the restraints placed on its collection and use of data deserve special attention. Indeed, the need for such attention is heightened because of the increasingly blurry line between public and private data. While these differences are real, big data is to some extent a leveler of the differences between government and companies. Both governments and companies have potential access to the same sources of data and the same analytic tools. Current rules may allow government to purchase or otherwise obtain data from the private sector that, in some cases, it could not legally collect itself, or to outsource to the private sector analyses it could not itself legally perform. [emphasis here] The possibility of government exercising, without proper safeguards, its own monopoly powers and also having unfettered access to the private information marketplace is unsettling.</quote>
