Privacy, Reputation, and Trust: Some Implications for Data Protection


  • Giovanni Sartor


The present contribution analyses the connection between privacy and trust, with regard to data protection. In particular, it shows how the need to facilitate trust-based relationships may justify some limitations of privacy (in the sense of a right to self-determination over personal data), but may also provide some grounds for the protection of privacy.
