47RZ15: The Communications Privacy Act

WHEREAS, it is vitally important that our citizens are able to give informed consent as to how their e-mail address is to be used, and

WHEREAS, the present arrangement is based off the idea of tacit and passive, not informed consent, and

WHEREAS, informed consent is better because that way people know what they’re agreeing to, and

WHEREAS, details such as one’s e-mail address are actually quite important, and

WHEREAS, if you asked most people if they’d be happy to share their e-mail address with anyone if they stump up a small fee, they’d probably say that was a little dodgy, and

WHEREAS, this bill ONLY stops party leaders from seeing a citizen's e-mail address without their consent, not the Chancery, now

THEREFORE, be it enacted by the Ziu that Lex.D.8.5, which currently reads

8.5. Information Available to Political Party Leaders
8.5.1. An Electorate Database shall be made available to political party leaders.
8.5.2. The Database shall only be accessible by leaders of parties which have been fully registered with the Chancery and provincial officers, provided the conditions in D.10.5 are met.
8.5.3. The Database shall contain the following information on each of the Kingdom's Citizens only: Name, Province, E-Mail address.
8.5.4. Measures shall be taken to ensure that the database is kept non-public and can only be viewed by the audience intended.
8.5.5. Additional information may be held upon the database against any given person ONLY if that person requests such information to be included.
8.5.6. Any citizen may request to opt-out of being included in this database for any reason at any time by notifying the database administrator.

is amended as follows:

8.5.6 which reads

Any citizen may request to opt-out of being included in this database for any reason at any time by notifying the database administrator.

is hereby amended to read

Any citizen may request to opt-out of having their E-Mail address included in this database for any reason at any time by notifying the Chancery.

A new sub-sub-section shall be added to follow 8.5.3 which shall read

The E-Mail address of a citizen shall only be made available to party leaders if the citizen has opted-in to receive election communications.

D.8.5.4, D.8.5.5, and D.8.5.6 are renumbered accordingly.
