Lack of motivation.
Refered as the
global digital divide.
Poorly educated nations will
be unable to compete effectively
in the global economy.
Provide individuals with details about medicines,about doctors,waiting lists...
However ,can only be accessed by individuals with ICT facilities.

the third one is the worst if people do not want others to know any items of that data
After a period of time OR when pre-defined date has been reached.
When user fails to respond to a computer command.
