CONSENT International Policy Conference: Perceptions, Privacy and Permissions:the role of consent in on-line services is the largest EU-supported multi-million Euro research project investigating consumer sentiment and privacy in on-line situations.
One of the key changes in societal trends and lifestyles witnessed over the past few years has been the move on-line of many consumers and the way they have become increasingly sophisticated in their media consumption habits. Have these recent changes to consumer and commercial practices developed in such a way that consumers are (in)voluntarily signing away their fundamental right to privacy?
CONSENT is a collaborative project that seeks to examine how consumer behaviour and commercial practices are changing the role of consent in the processing of personal data.
Rainey Reitman, EFF Activism Director, will be keynoting the conference.
