What Are You Doing With My Data?

What are you doing with my Data? evidences a process of how Malte Spitz, the German Green Party politician, author, and privacy activist, requested information from forty governmental institutions and commercial organizations—from police to airline records and from health information to credit ratings—to find out what information was held on him and how such data is collected and generated in Germany. Here, two documents from that collection are shown: PNRs of flights Spitz had taken and a letter from the police department stating that they had checked the Missing Persons and Deceased Persons databases.
