Information plays an increasingly central role in our economy. Through mobile telephony, internet platforms, or payment systems, firms gather larger amounts of data (‘big data’) on consumer behavior and characteristics. Privacy law plays an important role in these markets. How does privacy law influence the possibilities of platforms to compete and/or to develop new products and services?

Speakers: Sander Klous (UvA, KPMG), Bas Straathof (CPB)

Discussants: Jan Tichem (ACM), Frederik Zuiderveen Borgesius (UvA)
