In addition to the dilemma of different levels of data protection provided by data, because they flow through different reference conditions and have access to data stored in different domains or has data from access to a country.

Currently, India, the most complete legal provisions that speak to the Internet, can be found in the Information Technology Act (ITA) 2000. Ita contains a range of provision that can in some cases protect privacy online or in other cases, dilute privacy online. The provisions that clearly protect the privacy of the user include: Considering child pornography, Punishment, Hack and Fraud and define data protection standards for the corporate body.

In addition, the legislative gaps in ITA serve to weaken the privacy of online users. For example, ITA does not express questions and circumstances such as the evidence of the content of social networks in India, merger and data exchange through databases, as people can convey images of their own “private areas” through the Internet, if users have the Right to be notified of the presence of cookies and do not like the options, using electronic personal identifiers by databases, and if people have the right to request service providers to shoot and eliminate their personal content.
