CONSUMER DATA PRIVACY IN A NETWORKED WORLD:
 A FRAMEWORK FOR PROTECTINGPRIVACY AND PROMOTING INNOVATIONIN THE GLOBAL DIGITAL ECONOMY 
 
February , Americans have always cherished our privacy. From the birth o our republic, we assured ourselves protection againstunlawul intrusion into our homes and our personal papers. At the same time, we set up a postal system to enablecitizens all over the new nation to engage in commerce and political discourse. Soon ater, Congress made it a crimeto invade the privacy o the mails. And later we extended privacy protections to new modes o communicationssuch as the telephone, the computer, and eventually email.Justice Brandeis taught us that privacy is the “right to be let alone,” but we also know that privacy is about muchmore than just solitude or secrecy. Citizens who eel protected rom misuse o their personal inormation eel ree toengage in commerce, to participate in the political process, or to seek needed health care. This is why we have lawsthat protect nancial privacy and health privacy, and that protect consumers against unair and deceptive uses o their inormation. This why the Supreme Court has protected anonymous political speech, the same right exercisedby the pamphleteers o the early Republic and today’s bloggers.Never has privacy been more important than today, in the age o the Internet, the World Wide Web and smart phones.In just the last decade, the Internet has enabled a renewal o direct political engagement by citizens around theglobe and an explosion o commerce and innovation creating jobs o the uture. Much o this innovation is enabledby novel uses o personal inormation. So, it is incumbent on us to do what we have done throughout history: applyour timeless privacy values to the new technologies and circumstances o our times.I am pleased to present this new Consumer Privacy Bill o Rights as a blueprint or privacy in the inormation age.These rights give consumers clear guidance on what they should expect rom those who handle their personalinormation, and set expectations or companies that use personal data. I call on these companies to begin immedi-ately working with privacy advocates, consumer protection enorcement agencies, and others to implement theseprinciples in enorceable codes o conduct. My Administration will work to advance these principles and work withCongress to put them into law. With this Consumer Privacy Bill o Rights, we oer to the world a dynamic model o how to oer strong privacy protection and enable ongoing innovation in new inormation technologies.One thing should be clear, even though we live in a world in which we share personal inormation more reely than inthe past, we must reject the conclusion that privacy is an outmoded value. It has been at the heart o our democracyrom its inception, and we need it now more than ever.
