THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
STATEMENT BY VICE PRESIDENT GORE
I've always felt that our newest technologies must remain consistent with our oldest values. Ensuring that every American's right to privacy is protected amid explosive growth in the collection and use of personal records is one such basic American value.
And that is why I was pleased by the results of today's industry-funded survey on privacy. These survey results offer evidence that responsible firms can offer meaningful privacy protections to their customers. The preliminary assessment of these results also suggests that more work is ahead to offer all Americans a key component to their Electronic Bill of Rights.
