While pervasive and ubiquitous computing provides individuals with increased access to information and automated decision making, this access can affect personal privacy through increased collection, sharing and use of personal information. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces privacy by design, while recent U.S. government guidance emphasizes responsible use, in which original data collection purposes are preserved and propagated to verify that subsequent uses are consistent with the data subject's original expectations. This emphasis highlights the need for a reliable privacy semantics, which organizations can use to predict how their data collection, use and sharing practices affect personal privacy.
