    [From the introduction]. One of the greatest gifts bestowed to the human being is undoubtedly the right to choose. But at same time this gift may be a heavy servitude. Today to be free or to be secure has become a dilemma, a situation requiring choosing between two goods. Since both absolutes are impossible, the question arises because the ideal proportion of freedom and security varies human being from human being. The dilemma is not new but it recently burst again in the US after 11-S and later in the whole globe, including Europe (London 7-J and Madrid 11-M). In the following paragraphs I intend to present the different attitudes and views in the EU and the US with regard to privacy and data protection in a world specially obsessed with security.
