Protecting your rights and privacy in the Internet age.

April 12, 2015 7:32 PM

Liberal Democrats want to introduce a Digital Rights Bill in the next Parliament and have set out the key principles of what we think should be included.

Giving you control over data which is about you and your life.

Prison sentences for companies carrying out large-scale data theft and illegally selling your personal data

Defending your right to privacy and free expression online.

Appropriate limits on the power of public bodies to spy on internet activity.

As more people go online to work or play, these measures will become ever more essential to keep us from being exploited by criminals, commercial interests, and public authorities.

We've set out the key measures we want to see and are interested in hearing from you. What do you think should be included? You can have your say here:
