full paper Abstract: Widespread acceptance of e-government and m-government (and for that matter pervasive-Government) services will only take place when citizens are satisfied that personal data is stored, transmitted and processed with respect to their privacy. We compare and contrast data protection regimes found around the World and suggest that these have directly influenced the uptake of existing private-sector mobile services. Citizen uptake of e-government services will be encouraged by strong regulatory regimes dedicated to the protection of personal data. Consumers will entrust personal data where they can exert some measure of control over the release of that data to other parties. We examine a number of such controlling mechanisms and suggest a new privacy architecture intended for mobile service provision./font>
