NTIA User Interface Mockups

NTIA User Interface Mockups

“I am pleased to support the NTIA Short Form Notice Code of Conduct,” said Jules Polonetsky, Executive Director of the Future of Privacy Forum. “A ‘food label’ type approach to a privacy notice will give consumers a standardized way to get key privacy information at a glance and will help consumers better understand how apps collect and share data.”

The sample notices below show examples of implementations of the short notice developed by a number of the multi-stakeholders. We expect that consumer testing will lead to even better versions that will deliver easy to use information to consumers.

Example 1:  Data Use Highlighted

Example 2:  Data Used on Top & Data Not Used on Bottom

Example 3:  ”YES/NO” Highlighted Accordion

Example 4:  Categories Separated (Long List)

Example 5:  Categories Separated (Short List)

Please also check out the short form notice example from the Association of Competitive Technology, which demonstrates  another clear way that apps can implement the code in an easy-to-use manner!

Transparency means nothing without choice. The simple fact is that participating in business and society forces us to use technology that is available from a few sources only. All three geolocation service options on my mobile device have essentially the same terms of use and data collection practices.

Now I will know that more clearly, and vendors will taut their commitment to privacy without having to make any substantive changes.
