The UK Information Commissioner is initiating a consultation to develop a code of practice that will help companies address online privacy issues. It is anticipated that the code will provide guidance on the following matters:

  • Operating a privacy-friendly website
  • Rights and protections for individuals
  • Privacy choices and default settings
  • Cyberspace and territoriality

The UK Information Commissioner’s Office has requested that interested parties host discussion sessions. Hunton & Williams’ London office, together with the firm’s Centre for Information Policy Leadership, will be involved.
