The event was opened by the Director of the Directorate for Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Dimitar Gjeorgjievski and Robert Liddell, representative of the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Macedonia.
The Draft-Code for online privacy protection was also presented. The audience was comprised by representatives of NGOs, business sector and the media.
One interesting conclusion drawn by the speakers is that with the progress of technology, more and more websites will appear requiring more and more personal data for offering specific options, therefore warnings will need to be incorporated during the users’ registration process for a service or application. These would be used to briefly inform the users before they agree to provide their specific personal data, same as for example, the warning before using Facebook applications.
