Assessing Terms of Service compliance with Human Rights Standards

Consent for the processing of personal information has increasingly become the price users pay to use "free" services online. The migration of our lives to the online environment allows translating an increasing number of our daily activities into data and subsequently exploiting this information to produce new forms of value. The proposed panel will discuss the adequacy of the "notice and consent" model for data protection by bringing empirical evidence of how companies are concretely implementing it. Participants will focus on Internet intermediaries’ and their terms of service as well as on other examples of (governmental or non­governmental) initiatives trying to address the new challenges introduced by massive collection and processing of personal information to the protection of privacy. Moreover, participants will discuss the impacts of massive processing of personal data, analysing the different models that can be adopted in order to exploit data while minimising the potential negative consequences on individuals’ privacy.

The participants will engage in an interactive discussion, debating questions such as:
• How data can be used to drive social change?
• How can citizens and activists use data to challenge the status quo, e.g. force companies to negotiate their terms of service with consumer organizations, or force them (through technological means) to accept the terms defined by the data subject?
• What instruments do we need to foster better corporate compliance with human rights?
