VIEWPOINT DMA MD Rachel Aldighieri looks at the implications of Brexit for data privacy in the UK

Hello and welcome to our latest print edition. We hope you had a great summer and managed to get at least a few days’ digital detox. My two-week break this year was at Disneyland in Florida, doing the rounds of the theme parks – a roller-coaster ride in every respect. At my family’s behest, I managed to stay away from email for the duration, but I couldn’t really escape the tech. We were staying in a Disney hotel so when we arrived, we were all handed a ‘Magic Band’. This clever piece of wearable tech doubles/triples/ quadruples up as a mobile wallet, room key, personal identifier and location tracker, which I personally have no problem with, but it did freak out one of my family when we got to the end of one of the rides and a message flashed up on screen thanking her for trying it out. In fact, Walt was a big fan of technology, and always envisaged his theme parks as being something of a sandbox for trying new stuff out. I’m sure some of you reading this will have been to one of the Disney parks, EPCOT. But did you realise that the seemingly meaningless name is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow? What I really liked about the Magic Band was how much sense it made in the context of the holiday. You’re on roller coasters or in the Lazy River in one of the Water Parks – the last thing you want to worry about is money. The tech meant that me and my family could leave the hotel with nothing more than some sun cream and the Magic Band and we were set for the day. It reminded me of the fact that tech is at its best when it’s designed with the needs of the customer in mind, though we all know that’s not always the case. Whatever you did this summer, I hope you had a good one, and as ever, hope you enjoy the issue.
