Data Privacy and Temptation

John Zhuang Liuy | Michael Sockinz | Wei Xiong |

This paper analyzes how different data-sharing schemes of a digital platform may affect consumer surplus and social surplus when a fraction of the consumers have weak self-control and su§ers from targeted advertising of temptation goods, such as gambling and video games. While sharing consumer data with firms improves the e¢ ciency of matching consumers with normal consumption goods, it also exposes weak-willed consumers to temptation goods. Despite the seeming appeal of the opt-in policy of allowing each consumer to opt in or out of data sharing, our analysis shows that this policy may not be effective in protecting severely tempted consumers. When other consumers, motivated by the improved access to normal goods, choose to share their data, their opt-in reduces the anonymity of the weak-willed consumers who choose to opt out. To alleviate this externality, privacy protection regulation needs to limit the bundling of the consumer authorization to share data with normal good and temptation good sellers. |

Sports technology and the GDPR: data privacy concerns in sports analysis

Connected devices and data analysis are now utilised by clubs and other key stakeholders across many sports to achieve better results and enhance athlete performance. As technology advances, so do the risks. In modern professional sport a vast amount of data may be retained and analysed. For example, it is anticipated that a typical 90-minute football match can produce approximately 15 million datasets. There are several legal issues that may arise with the use of technology to monitor athlete performance.

China’s Data Privacy Balancing Act

The New York Timesannounced last week that China is implementing a mass DNA collection project in order to create a large-scale database that genetically maps the country’s entire male population. This news reignites concern over China’s mass surveillance system, especially as it made headlines last week for a litany of other news events that signal the government’s increasingly aggressive ambitions (see: escalating conflicts along the China-India border, Australian’s veiled accusations of a months-long series of cyberattacks from China, and the release of a blueprint for China’s new national security law for Hong Kong). But compared to China’s foreign policy ambitions, the government’s stance on surveillance is tempered by a key stakeholder—citizens—and a developing legal framework for data privacy.
