BIG BROTHER WATCH

ABOUT

The mission of Big Brother Watch is to campaign on behalf of the individual, to educate and encourage more control over personal data, and to ensure that those who fail to respect our privacy, whether private companies, government departments, or local authorities, are held to account.

The organization's briefings are regularly cited in Parliament, in government reports, and in the national media.
