Which steps do you undertake to safeguard privacy in MARCONI?
We have done an analysis of architecture, data types and use cases of MARCONI to the conclusion that it involves heavy processing of personal data. Thus, proper safeguards in privacy, data security, privacy by design and default must be developed. The major point is getting the confidence of the users and being as transparent as possible. The user has to consent to the use of his data. Otherwise, MARCONI services cannot be delivered .
