China to make efforts to preserve online privacy


07:42, June 27, 2013

BEIJING, June 26 (Xinhua) -- The State Internet Information Office will initiate a campaign Thursday to prevent online breaches of privacy and information leaks.

According to a statement from the office on Wednesday, the campaign will focus on blogs and microblogs that are set up in other people's names, as well as leaks of people's personal addresses and the identities, secretly recorded audio or video content and slanderous statements.

"Individual citizens' legal rights will be resolutely protected and any behavior that infringes upon their privacy or other rights deserve condemnation," the statement said.

Vowing to join forces with police departments to punish violators, the office also promised to improve its whistleblowing mechanism in order to prevent the spread of false information.
