Title: How Citizen Science Can Add Value to Investigate Compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Abstract: We have “zero privacy” and should “get over it”. These are words uttered in 1999 by Sun Microsystems co-founder, Scott McNealy (Sprenger, 1999). CSI-COP disagree. Using a bottom-up approach to assess whether the informed consent and transparency elements in the GDPR are being complied with, specifically on websites and in apps on smart mobile devices, the CSI-COP EU Horizon2020 funded research and innovation project (grant agreement 873169) will engage, educate and inform recruited adults from the general public to become citizen scientists joining the project’s research team. In this talk the problem of near-ubiquitous online tracking will be presented.
