masonfreeparty2 Posted February 19 Share Posted February 19 from the above article.. For this reason, this author support British scholars Hughes and Low’s call for government supervision of the application of GPS surveillance technologies to dementia sufferers and others. Their suggestion to secure legislation that regulates collection of personal data through GPS devices generally and surveillance of vulnerable groups such as the aged or children specifically, is an urgent call for action meriting immediate attention here as well157. In light of the above, it is posited that assistive technology should only be made available “in circumstances where it offers immediate therapeutic benefits of proven efficacy as well as a positive benefit-risk-ratio”158. In this vein, one author, dealing with GPS surveillance generally, has suggested that a model privacy law “regulate the collection and use of personal data with [both implantable and] nonimplantable [GPS] chips. Such a statute should legislate inalienabilities that place use-transfer restrictions on the personal information generated through wearable GPS devices”159. That article’s author, Paul M. Schwartz, further calls for institutions to “police the privacy promises and practices of wearable chip companies. Institutions are necessary to provide trading mechanisms to help with verification of interests in propertized personal data, and to enforce compliance with agreed-upon terms and legislatively mandated safeguards”160.
