“Personal data should not be stored in a form without the consent of the user or maybe another individual whose data is been stored that allows identification of data subjects beyond what is necessary and for the purpose of the data being processed. Personal data should also be processed in such a way that it is safeguarded, including against unauthorised and unlawful processing even by government let alone private entities. The confidentiality and integrity of data is also a major concern of these public and private sectors as well as accidental loss, destruction, or damage of the data.” In this article, we discuss how data is being used for different purposes with or without consent of the individuals. It also highlights the importance of monitoring and amending these policies and regulations in order to achieve the idea of personal data control. The security of data, here referred to as data protection, is said to be a reflection of privacy because it provides the assurance that data related to the privacy of the individuals are protected and secured. The very first requirement of such regulations was to hold someone accountable for using, abusing and misusing data. Whether we are talking about Indian scenario or global scenario, the accountability of the organisation and third parties is determined by these regulations. It is also determined through various means of punishment and sanction. This article also highlights the need for strict compliance with data protection principles by organisations and third parties today in a complex data-driven environment. The right to protection of personal data has strong connections with the right to privacy, and that personal data should be processed in a way that is lawful, fair and transparent to the data subject. Personal data should be accurate and kept up to date, and any inaccurate data should be erased or rectified as soon as possible.
