Title: Alex Voorhoeve
What Makes Personal Data Processing Permissible?
(joint work with Lichelle Wolmarans)

Standard “notice-and-consent” regimes for the use of personal data on  
social networking sites (SNS) are problematic. Due to the complexity of the  
notices, the frequency with which users are asked to consent, and the  
presence of decision-making biases, many users consent without proper  
understanding or consideration. As a consequence, the consent given by SNS  
users does not meet the conditions for morally transformative consent  
according to the canonical Autonomous Authorization view. One response  
would be to require that users’ consent be an autonomous authorization. We  
criticize this idea. First, Autonomous Authorization is not always  
necessary, since it sets the bar for understanding too high and would  
create undue barriers to access to SNS. Second, Autonomous Authorization is  
not sufficient, because it ignores both the power imbalance between users  
and SNS and the social effects of personal data processing. We argue that  
these problems can be solved by ensuring that users have valuable  
opportunities to access SNS. On this view, we should ensure that a diverse  
set of users, with different tastes and decision-making abilities, can  
pursue their interests on SNS in a manner that strikes a balance between  
the benefits provided and the private and social risks of personal data  
processing. This view requires regulating SNS so that (i) a wide variety  
user types can reasonably be expected to make choices regarding their  
personal data that are in their interests; and (ii) the collective impact  
of these choices is acceptable.
