Patterns — inform
Privacy-Aware Network Client
Informed Consent for Web-based Transactions
This pattern describes how controllers can inform users whenever they intend to collect or otherwise use a user's personal data.
Data Breach Notification Pattern
This pattern assures that a certain minimum data breach notification delay is not exceeded.
An informational privacy dashboard can provide collected summaries of the collected or processed personal data for a particular user.
Layered Policy Design
Split privacy policies into nested, successively refined versions. Leave the legalese to the lawyers.
Handling unusual account activities with multiple factors
Use additional factors to notify users of unusual activities and authenticate when accounts may have been compromised.
How can a service effectively provide notice to a user who gave permission once but whose information is accessed repeatedly (perhaps even continuously) over a long period of time? Proactively notify the user after the time of consent that information is being tracked, stored or re-distributed.
Policy Matching Display
Give one careful thought to your privacy needs, then be always able to swiftly apply what you decided.
Privacy Color Coding
In a social networking site a user gets direct visual cues which privacy settings apply on which shared elements.
Provide an ambient notice (unobtrusive, non-modal) when location is being accessed to increase awareness of ongoing tracking.
