Abstract

Privacy governance options range from top-down command-and-control regulation at the one end (e.g., Regulation (EU) 2016/679), to bottom-up user selfhelp at the other.The inability of the state to guarantee full-fledged protection in global online networks in general (Roßnagel, 1997) and the legacy of the conventional liberal privacy paradigm (Bennett & Raab, 2003; Regan, 1995) both account for the more prominent role that user self-help is accorded in this governance mix.
