Article 7: Protect privacy.
Adhere to the principles of legality, legitimacy, and necessity when collecting and using personal information. Strengthen privacy protection for special data subjects such as minors. Strengthen technical methods, ensure data security, and be on guard against risks such as data leaks.
R Respect of privacy
The rise of AI has been described by some as the death of privacy, while others have compared it to an Orwellian Big Brother ready to scoop on everyone's private life. Certainly, machine learning technologies have brought about new ethical issues related to the respect of privacy. Recognising this, the European Commission reinforced the principle that everyone has the right to the protection of personal data by proposing a comprehensive reform of data protection rules (General Data Protection Regulation GDPR).
2.4 Cybersecurity and Privacy
Published by: Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) in AI Policy Principles
Just like technologies that have come before it, AI depends on strong cybersecurity and privacy provisions. We encourage governments to use strong, globally accepted and deployed cryptography and other security standards that enable trust and interoperability. We also promote voluntary information sharing on cyberattacks or hacks to better enable consumer protection. The tech sector incorporates strong security features into our products and services to advance trust, including using published algorithms as our default cryptography approach as they have the greatest trust among global stakeholders, and limiting access to encryption keys. Data and cybersecurity are integral to the success of AI. We believe for AI to flourish, users must trust that their personal and sensitive data is protected and handled appropriately. AI systems should use tools, including anonymized data, de identification, or aggregation to protect personally identifiable information whenever possible.
6. Principle of privacy

Developers should take it into consideration that AI systems will not infringe the privacy of users or third parties.
The privacy referred to in this principle includes spatial privacy (peace of personal life), information privacy (personal data), and secrecy of communications. Developers should consider international guidelines on privacy, such as “OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data,” as well as the followings, with consideration of the possibility that AI systems might change their outputs or programs as a result of learning and other methods:
● To make efforts to evaluate the risks of privacy infringement and conduct privacy impact assessment in advance.
● To make efforts to take necessary measures, to the extent possible in light of the characteristics of the technologies to be adopted throughout the process of development of the AI systems (“privacy by design”), to avoid infringement of privacy at the time of the utilization.
We will respect people’s privacy
1. AI systems should respect privacy and use the minimum intrusion necessary
2. AI systems should uphold high standards of data governance and security, protecting personal information
3. Surveillance or other AI driven technologies should not be deployed to the extent of violating internationally and or UAE’s accepted standards of privacy and human dignity and people rights
