In recent years, the Internet has changed significantly. This is evidenced by the emergence of new formats for data exchange, increasing the volume and speed of transmitted information, as well as developing and implementing models of information interaction between the state and society. At the same time, with the growth of the volume of information, new challenges appear that have remained in the shadow of the legal field, such as the collection of personal data, the leakage of information or the informed consent of the user. Today, huge amounts of information are generated from various sources: social networks, the media, the Internet of things, cloud storage, smart devices and others. At the heart of such an information flow lie mathematical algorithms that facilitate the delivery of information to the end user. Before the era of Big data, information owners did not have sufficient computing power, storage space and processing capabilities for incoming data. That is why the results of the processing were based on a statistical sample of a small amount of information, which did not always reflect the real picture of the world. The relevance of the topic of work is determined by the socio-political importance of ensuring and protecting privacy. Moreover, in the light of dynamically developing information relations in the Russian Federation and in the world, questions about the right of access to users` information, as well as the use of personal data in the era of Big data are widely discussed. The structure of the work consists of an introduction, two chapters, a conclusion and a list of literature. Methods of scientific knowledge are used: formally - legal, the analysis, synthesis, deduction, an induction and comparative legal.
