Privacy laws are constantly evolving in an open market context. Digital trade rewrites privacy law with new forms of consent to ensure that private organizations can comply with global data-transfer regulations. International treaties like the new version of Nafta, USMCA, or the Trans-Pacific Partnership adopted an open-border data transfer principle, limiting national restrictions.

In Europe, privacy rules permit individuals to claim the deletion of any information about themselves from searching engines.  PIPEDA which is Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, permits the Office of the Privacy Commissioner to provide new guidelines for Canadian companies by adding sophisticated forms of consent to protect individuals from international data transfers.
