Views on Digital Privacy Differ Across Countries

According to a survey by the Boston Consulting Group, views about digital privacy (social networking information, call records, website visits, etc.) vary by country, as well as by data type.

"Americans and China hold opposite opinions about location, purchases and website visits. Where most Americans treat this information as private at a ratio of at least two to one, most Chinese treat them as barely private or not private at all. More broadly, India and China seem to have fewer privacy qualms than the West, while Brazil holds similar views. Indians, interestingly, ascribe little privacy to information about children. Most intriguingly, the three large developing countries have very different perceptions about health and genetic information: opinions there are equally divided. But in the West, about five to one favour treating the data privately."
