Its citizenship, understood this in the broad sense in which today is recognized by the development of the social sciences. In short, we are protecting its greatest attribute: its condition of being human ".

This necessarily implies a paradigm shift in our conception of Privacy, given the current that fosters greater freedom in the transfer of information, a virtue both for the needs of state security and for the initiative of the new generations in their Daily communication, aspects that undoubtedly raise the value of the work presented ".
