Abstract

In the course of this brief work we have tried to provide answers to questions that have arisen concerning some of the most critical aspects of IoT, in terms of individuals’ fundamental rights safeguard, especially concerning the emerging complexities with respect to the protection of the personal sphere and the information of the data subject. We attempted to re-read the right to privacy, recombining it with data protection and giving life to what we have called “data protecy”, a merger of safeguards which should be always considered in IoT. Hence, we focused on the new concept of “3D Privacy”, as a consequence of the data protecy approach, that consists in adopting also physical security measures, empowering users and non-users as data subjects with material tools in order to self-control over their information and to self-defend from data collection in IoT open environments. This new approach has shown that it should be now necessary not only to appeal to abstract rules or policies, but also to find concrete, material instruments, ranging from the “off” button until very “personal anti-radar gadgets” or other sensors misleading devices, however limiting their use only to strictly private contexts.
