Seminar: “Your right to privacy online”
Data across the Internet is collected through digital technologies in websites and in apps (software programs on mobile devices). These technologies include cookies, and small text files placed on desktop computers, laptops, or smart devices (tablets, mobile phones) when you visit a page on the Internet. Cookies can include digital trackers, such as tracking the precise location of your device. App settings can have permissions to access your contacts, your camera, your messages, your microphone, and other data on your mobile devices. The location of a device can personally identify a person who uses or owns the device, so its tracking has data protection and privacy implications.

The main objective of this event is to informally educate the general public about online tracking technologies and how to turn them off. The seminar is organized by AgroTransilvania Cluster.
