Whether it's the government or private corporations, entities are seeking to access greater and greater amounts of personal data through technological means. This data gives these entities the ability to track trends and monitor consumer behavior. However, privacy concerns exist when such vast amounts of data are accessed and used by the government or private entities. The fall symposium of the University of St. Thomas Journal of Law and Public Policy seeks to explore the questions surrounding this topic.
