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.
