The information society has created an environment where new technologies increasingly threaten the right to privacy. Privacy and Data Protection Law in Ireland provides a detailed analysis of the law that applies in this complex and uncertain environment.
Privacy and Data Protection Law in Ireland covers relevant Irish legislation, in particular the Communications (Retention of Data) Act 2011 and the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010.
It also includes developments in EU law such as the Lisbon Treaty and European Charter of Fundamental Rights, the EU Council Framework Decision 2008/977/JHA of November 2008 on the protection of personal data processed in the framework of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters and the new E-Privacy Directive.
The new edition includes three new chapters, specifically dealing with social networking, cloud computing and criminal legislation.
