Quindici anni in un database americano

GRAZIE UE PER regalarci ancora un'altra grande emozione! Come questo accordo in base al quale gli statunitensi adesso potranno tenere per 15 anni i dati personali di chi vola dall'Europa negli Usa facendoseli consegnare dalle compagnie aree. Alla faccia di Barack Obama.

Money Quote: The "restricted" draft, which emerged from negotiations between the US and EU, opens the way for passenger data provided to airlines on check-in to be analysed by US automated data-mining and profiling programmes in the name of fighting terrorism, crime and illegal migration. The Americans want to require airlines to supply passenger lists as near complete as possible 96 hours before takeoff, so names can be checked against terrorist and immigration watchlists.

The agreement acknowledges that there will be occasions when people are delayed or prevented from flying because they are wrongly identified as a threat, and gives them the right to petition for judicial review in the US federal court. It also outlines procedures in the event of anticipated data losses or other unauthorised disclosure. The text includes provisions under which "sensitive personal data" – such as ethnic origin, political opinions, and details of health or sex life – can be used in exceptional circumstances where an individual's life could be imperilled.
