The Cayman Islands are once again considering a data protection bill — an effort that has failed twice before. Japan’s Supreme Court ruled that police use of GPS devices without a warrant is illegal. New Zealand’s customs head may get new powers to share citizen data with amendments to a customs law, and Privacy Commissioner John Edwards has proposed amendments to the country’s Privacy Act 1993. Germany’s Parliament has approved amendments to the Federal Data Protection Act. And in the U.S., there are proposals for privacy protections from expanded government drone use, plus action in California, New Mexico, Utah and more. Read about this and more in this week’s Privacy Tracker weekly roundup. (IAPP member login required.)
