Förderjahr 2019 / Project Call #14 / ProjektID: 4625 / Projekt: RESPECTeD
Advanced Data Protection Control (ADPC), one of the main outputs of the RESPECTeD project, led by Soheil Human and Max Schrems was released today. ADPC is a proposed automated mechanism for the communication of users’ privacy decisions. It aims to empower users to protect their online choices in a human-centric, easy and enforceable manner. ADPC also supports online publishers and service providers to comply with data protection and consumer protection regulations.
You hate “cookie banners” too? ADPC would allow users to set their privacy preferences in their browser, plugin or operating system and communicate them in a simple way – limiting friction in user interaction for providers and users alike, as foreseen or panned in various innovative laws.
