I'm agree with Sebastian. Here (in latin america) we take the privacy issue like a extension of constitucional law. You have the privacy like a human right, (in a first level).

Just we started to create "special policies" for the data protection (that is the special issue for the whois), but the NGO (in special human rights) make a lot of work in data protection by constitucional area, (don't forget in latin america, the democracy is very "difficult to find" (to say something).

In esence we are a third way, with a protection of privacy in constitutional level, not like europe (government office, and policy), or like europe (each state, national policy).

So, we need to "assume" a data protection general, (all the countries in spanish-latin america and brasil have habeas data), but don't have a special policy (just en argentina and costa rica starting with this)

Well this to start!

The privacy issue is just starting in Latin America. Although privacy was
recognized a long time ago, there wasn't a clear mecanism of enforcenment.
Some countries adopted an figure called Habeas Data in the past years, and,
after the privacy issues came with The Net and some financial services
(credit history, etc) there is an ongoing debate. I'll check my files to see
if I find something in English or Italian to send you.
