Centre for Internet & Society

The Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) and the Say No to UID Campaign invite you to a discussion identity, databases and facilitating technologies that explores the use of personal identifiers across databases and the potential violations of privacy on August 9, 2014 (10.30 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.) at the CIS office in Bangalore.

The discussions will specifically focus on the UID and the NPR and seek to answer:

  1. What information is being collected and databased by each scheme?
  2. What type of technology is needed to collect and database this information?
  3. How and where is this information being databased?
  4. What are the potential risks to the databasing of this information?
  5. Are there legal safeguards protecting against misuse of this information, and if not, what safeguards are needed?
  6. Is there a difference between the state collecting, storing, and using this information and a private entity?
