dc.description.abstractThe nature of electronic commerce requires purchasing individuals to reveal their personal information in certain circumstances, so as to enable the execution of e-commerce transactions. E-commerce websites are also designed to gather internet user’s personal information in order to personalize services and strategize relationships with their consumers. This has brought forth privacy and security concerns in relation to the collection, storage and use of individual’s personal information by these entities. This study will therefore, address the nature of e commerce highlighting the structures of contracts under e-commerce as they are the various modes of completing an e-commerce transaction. It will then discuss the type of information that is gathered by e-commerce entities while an individual is transacting online and call attention to the potential harm to privacy when this information is not protected. The study will then look into the laws that seek to protect personal information in Kenya whilst establishing the shortfalls of these laws in ensuring that personal information belonging to individuals is protected. It will then propose recommendations that are geared towards an effective data protection regime and consequently the promotion of the right to privacy, a fundamental right under Article 31 of the Constitution of Kenyen_US
