Disconnect and TRUSTe Announce the Launch of Privacy Icon

Disconnect and TRUSTe announced the launch of Privacy Icons, software that helps people quickly understand how websites handle their data. Users want to know what companies intend to do with their data--but privacy policies and terms of service are typically long-winded, complex documents that are predominantly written by lawyers, for lawyers. The TRUSTe Privacy Index found the average privacy policy was 2,464 words long and takes 10 minutes to read with the reading level of a university student. The Privacy Icons software shows users a set of icons in the browser for every site they visit and for every search result. The icons are simple, visual cues that provide a quick and easy way for users to understand the most important data practices of a given website. Icons indicating data collection and expected use, location tracking and data retention will be powered by data from the TRUSTe Privacy Policy Database, which includes in-depth analysis of the privacy policies of thousands of websites around the world. There will also be icons indicating whether a site is TRUSTe certified and children's privacy certified. Additional icons will indicate whether websites support HTTPS by default, comply with a user's DoNotTrack (DNT) browser preference, and if a website is still vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. Privacy Icons also indicates whether a website complies with a user's DNT browser setting. Initially, the DNT icon will be assigned to the list of companies committed to honor DNT on DoNotTrack.Us, a website maintained by Stanford and Princeton privacy researchers Jonathan Mayer and Arvind Narayanan. Companies not on that list, but who have committed to comply with DNT, will also be assigned the DNT icon on a case-by-case basis. Starting today, the Privacy Icons software is available as desktop browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox, with versions for the other major desktop and mobile browsers soon to follow.
