Business need clear standards about whether users should be able to see the bulk of the information associated with their profile and be provided an opportunity to correct and dispute this information. Clear standards that incorporate common standards for privacy and due process will be reasonably stable allowing corporate counsel to plan for the future. They will also reduce the probability that the E.U. and other trade partners will develop more protectionist laws that will hurt American commerce.
