Privacy Icons Legal Hackathon

People rarely read privacy policies, but they're important. So let's make it easier for users to understand the most meaningful things a website does with their data. To accomplish this, Disconnect is hosting a project to crowd-source -- think Wikipedia -- turning websites' privacy policies into a set of Creative Commons licensed privacy icons. EFF Senior Staff Attorney Marcia Hofmann will participate in a discussion during the Hackathon about privacy icons, privacy policies, data practices and transparency.
