Consumer privacy and data protection

CI aims to ensure that consumers have meaningful control over how their personal information is used.

Consumer privacy and data protection

Access to Knowledge

CI seeks to harness the collective voice and effectiveness of consumer groups working around the world and across issue sectors, to guarantee that consumer interests are adequately represented in national and global debates around intellectual property (IP) and communications rights, and thereby to serve as a catalyst for policy change, by putting pressure on governments and international organisations to develop more balanced IP and communications regimes.

Access to Knowledge
