The absolute right

to digital privacy

 In its commitment as a citizen, Drumee wishes to work for the common good in the digital domain. The digital technology going very fast, the impact on the rights and freedoms of citizens has not had time to be sufficiently taken into account in society. So Drumee joins the “International Statements of Digital Rights” to establish the basis for a true respect of the privacy of citizens and contribute to a future ethical web.

International Charter of Digital Rights


Considering that digital technologies create new problems for the rights and freedoms of individuals, and particularly open the possibility of new intrusive practices that threaten the natural right and dignity of the human being,


Considering that the “Personal Data” of people deposited on various digital media become so global that they become inseparable from his being and must benefit from the natural guarantees due to any human person,


Considering that these “Personal Data” are constituted among others of (1) identity information including the face, (2) files, photos, videos, (3) lists of contacts, (4) written, oral and video discussions (5) geolocations, movements (6) medical data (7) time schedules, (8) habits on the Internet, (9) payments made, etc.


Considering that certain abusive commercial uses of these Data instrumentalise people and violate their intimacy.


Considering that digital mass surveillance, whatever the pretext – security, health or other – does not protect society but on the contrary become a bigger risk than the pretexts invoked,


Consequently, it appeared necessary to establish an International Charter of Digital Rights to define a framework for the use of digital technologies to protect the privacy of individuals and limit the possibilities of abuse by private or public actors.

Article 1   Sovereignty


Each person is the sole sovereign over his or her “Personal Data” deposited on all  type of digital supports whatever they are. He/she alone has the right to decide who can access them and for what purpose. It has the right to revoke at any time any access authorizations with the absolute guarantee that the third parties concerned do not retain any data.


He/She is sole sovereign over his/her personal digital spaces even when they are entrusted to third party. She has the right to delete all or part of what is stock on them without any obligation of conservation. His/Her digital spaces must never be the object of intrusions, advertising or unsolicited digital nuisance.


Any person is also the sole owner of his or her “Personal Data” appearing, with or without his or her authorization, on third-party digital media – search engines, databases, etc. They have the right to demand the partial or total deletion of such data.

Article 2   Dignity

Every person has the inalienable right to confidentiality and privacy when using digital means. She must be able to interact, communicate, exchange with them without being subject to the least surveillance, whether by private or public actors.


Every person has the right not to be digitized, via external codes, body implants, digital identity or any other system. Such measures are intrinsically contrary to their dignity. 

Article 3   Freedom

Everyone has the right to freely use digital communication tools including Internet without restrictions, intrusions or obligations to preserve data, content, connection parameters, and history of use.


Everyone must be able to express themselves freely on the Internet, and this freedom of expression must be guaranteed. The right to anonymity on the Internet is one of the essential conditions, necessary and prior to the exercise of this freedom.
