Frequently asked questions

What does the Talossan Privacy Information Centre do?

First and foremost we provide materials like this, documents that explain your privacy rights under the law, in a language that everyone can understand.

We are also beginning to cultivate a resource list of experts who you may contact for personalized guidance, public advocacy, or legal representation.

Eventually, the following additional resources will be added

  • A think tank to examine current law and public policy and suggest changes.
  • Scholarly articles, papers, case summaries, and other insightful content on the subject.

What laws protect my privacy in Talossa?

Various sections of El Lexhatx and Organic Law govern the use and management of personal information. To read excerpts, click the links under the Laws heading in the sidebar.

Generally speaking, your personal information is held on file and is only accessible by the Secretary of State or The King, unless you've provided expressed consent for it to be shared with others (El Lexhatx, D.8.4.1).

However, this information may be passed onto non-Talossan law enforcement agencies in the interest of international law enforcement and co-operation (El Lexhatx, D.8.4.2).

What is personal information?

Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. Under El Lexhatx (D.8.4.1) this includes, but is not limited to:

  • given names;
  • ages;
  • date of births;
  • national security numbers;
  • private mailing addresses;
  • contact telephone numbers; and
  • private email addresses.

What if I'm still a prospective and have not received citizenship yet?

You are still protected. Under El Lexhatx (E.11) the Immigration Ministry may only publicly reveal your name and general locale, unless you authorise them to provide more information.

What can I do if I think my privacy rights have been violated?

Complain to the individual or representative of the organization responsible, and seek reparations. If this is unsatisfactory, assistance from your local or federal representative, an advocacy group (like TPIC), or legal counsel may be in order.

Can I make an anonymous complaint?

Probably not. A complaint requires a complainant. In particular, should your complaint concern your own personal information, only you can realistically make allegations about improper collection, use and disclosure in order to receive a response from the organization in reference to that same information.

That said, should you have a concern about systemic issues concerning an organization's general information handling practices, you be able to may a complaint by proxy, by getting a representative individual or group to make the complaint or allegation on your behalf.
