Legal protection of inferred personal data

In this report we address the legal protection of inferred data from its production to its use and impact, aiming to recognise its existence and account for its impact on everyday life. Through some examples, we see how they are the basis for decisions that can affect everything from privacy to autonomy and potentially the physical integrity of individuals. In view of this, we briefly review the regulatory situation in other countries in order to finally consider a possible regulation in Argentina that would guarantee rights.

We seek through this document to reflect on the importance of understanding that inferred data are personal data, and as such should be regulated from a human rights perspective.
