One of the struggles I’ve encountered in advocating for consentful tech is the lack of real-world case studies I can point to as examples. So it’s been an exciting journey the last couple months to work with the Design Justice Network (DJN) web team on baking consent into the redesign of the DJN website.
Our process work is featured in the Harvard Shorenstein Center’s 2019 Privacy Design Forecast, which launches today! This collection of design concepts illustrates how designers, researchers, and engineers are improving data privacy experiences in products around the world and asks:
- How might we reimagine meaningful, informed consent for sharing personal data?
- How do civil society, practitioners, and policymakers frame privacy and privacy through design? What interventions are being implemented across industries, disciplines and practices?
Read our case study “FRIES: What good consent looks like in sign-up processes” and be sure to check out the 16 other exciting concepts at https://privacy.shorensteincenter.org/.
And in case you’re wondering, FRIES stands for Freely Given, Reversible, Informed, Enthusiastic, and Specific — all the ingredients for good consent. You can read more about that by downloading the Building Consentful Tech zine (PDF).
