  • Here is the window users use to configure their privacy preferences. Users cannot use this tool until they select a setting.
  • When users visit a site that uses P3P, they can click on the privacy icon in their browser to “privacy check” the site. This brings up a window that explains any areas where a site’s policy conflicts with a user’s preferences. Users can also use this window to jump directly to a site’s privacy policy, as well as see whether the site has a privacy seal. The top window shown here is the privacy check for the Texas Tech University Health Center. It includes a warning because this site does not provide any access to the data they collect. The bottom window is for Microsoft. In this case there are no warnings because the policy does not conflict with user’s preferences. Microsoft has a seal from TRUSTe.
  • After the user changes her preference settings, she sees a warning at the Microsoft site because the site may collect personally identifiable data for profiling.
  • Here are the symbols a user sees when they use the P3P-enabled Idcide Privacy Companion prototype.
  • Users can click on the P3P icon to find out where a site’s policy conflicts with their preferences.
  • Orby includes a Trust meter that analyzes a site’s P3P policy and evaluates it on a number of factors and computes a rating. Users can click on the Trust Meter to see the various factors that went into a particular rating.
  • Orby can also be configured to prompt users before accepting or receiving cookies. Users can enable and disable cookies on a site by site basis.
  • The Orby includes a drop-down menu from which users can select one of four privacy levels that are used to control when cookies are sent or users are prompted about cookies.
  • P3P policy generation is one of the services provided by PrivacyBot.com. PrivacyBot.com currently charges sites $30 to generate a human-readable policy and a P3P policy.
