The right to know explicitly what information is being retained due to my interaction with your service/website/network/whatever

despens: This demand is very difficult to fulfill because the routing of data on the Internet is extremely complex. There are so many points where some entity could make use of or manipulate any traffic, it is just overwhelming.
Seoyoung Kwak: I am strongly agreed to this discussion. As you said, it is very important to know explicitly what information is being retained during the interaction with the service. But nowadays, there are many cases where my personal information is unintentionally leaked from the app service.
In June 2020, as Apple updated the monitoring function for personal information protection in iOS14, the suspicions related to the leakage of personal information of’TikTok’ were re-examined. Through this function, it was revealed that TikTok copied the contents of the user’s clipboard without notifying a clear purpose.
As another example, I would like to take Korea’s AI chatbot service ‘Luda’ as an example, which was a controversy at the beginning of this year. Luda used the conversation history in a personal messenger as data without permission, and while using the service, the actual address, name, and account information were leaked. The service has been suspended due to protests from many people.
