This august World Assembly,
Believing that data ought to be protected, but that the target resolution has serious flaws which impose significant harms on society,
- firms which collect personal data now have perverse incentives to not collect any data that identifies age or proxies thereof, so to fall into the exemption provided by section 2(a), and
- minors can have legitimate reasons to have personal data stored without the explicit approval of their guardians, especially in relation to evidence of child abuse and, less seriously, in personal data associated with accounts on social networks,
- makes it possible for people to hide information from the court, making the court rule on an unclear or biased view of the facts, and
- harms the ability of private actors to get data that could be needed for securing injunctive relief or damages from the respondent, and
Repeals "Protecting Personal Data".
