Featured on the TOP 21 Books in Privacy & Data Protection That You Must Read ASAP (The Privacy Whisperer 2022)

‘[...] the book investigates how our current legal framework can be informed by psychological, technological, and societal perspectives to curb predatory business models of surveillance capitalism. […] The book paves the ground for the development of a new consumer protection orientated legal doctrine.’
H.‑W. Micklitz in Journal of consumer policy (2022)

‘The author outlines the design logics of persuasive technologies and manipulative marketing techniques to elucidate how individuals are nudged, tricked and forced into certain directions and choices. […] Trzaskowski’s book presents a more thorough depiction of a diagnosis widely shared since the Cambridge Analytical Scandal that accused “personalized advertisement” of being destructive to democracy. […] His book makes a crucial contribution in outlining the vulnerability individuals disclose through their personal data. What is at stake in data-driven marketing is our autonomy and agency, which is precisely what we consider at the heart of human dignity.’
Theresa Henne in Global Privacy Law Review (2022)

‘With its legal starting point and its holistic approach to the subject, the book supplements existing literature in the field and demonstrates the author’s impressive breadth of knowledge on the subject.’
Henrik Udsen in Danish Weekly Law Journal (2022)

‘How often have you read the words “Your privacy is important to us” […] this excellent book […] questions whether we mean those words or if the statement is a sop to make individuals believe their personal data is safe from predatory corporate behaviour.’
Ardi Kolah in Journal of Data Protection & Privacy (2023)

‘This book will help us all understand who is abusing us through big technology and how. And it may enable us to respond to the dangers of Manipulation Capitalism, not as threats to capitalism based on monopoly power, but as something far more pernicious, less visible, and more dangerous to individual dignity and to the functioning of our complex societies. Despite Jan’s concerns about a possible dystopian future, he and the book remain surprisingly optimistic.’
Eric K. Clemons in the Foreword (2021)

Jan Trzaskowski, Your Privacy Is Important to Us! – Restoring Human Dignity in Data-Driven Marketing (Ex Tuto 2021)

Your Privacy Is Important to Us! – Restoring Human Dignity in Data-Driven Marketing

Your Privacy Is Important to Us! explores the application of EU consumer law—including data protection law and other fundamental rights—to data-driven business models that infringe on human agency, social cohesion and democratic debate. It suggests how our current legal framework can be informed by psychological, technological and societal perspectives to curb predatory business models of surveillance capitalism.

The book elucidates the potential for cross-fertilisation between data protection law and marketing law, and it demonstrates how the protection of human dignity, privacy and non-discrimination may corroborate these legal disciplines. It is argued that ‘paying with personal data’ is a misleading framing when, in fact, we pay with attention and agency—which are both scarcer and more precious than personal data and are also important in social and societal contexts. A three-tiered model of information asymmetry is introduced to illustrate why information does not ensure transparency, which is a prerequisite for user empowerment.

The aim is to inform and amplify ongoing debates by providing a coherent framing of data-driven marketing in the context of law, psychology, technology and society.
