The World Wide Web Consortium’s Technical Architecture Group (TAG) has recently established a task force to create a set of privacy principles for the web. This initiative is part of the W3C’s ongoing efforts to promote and protect privacy on the web. The Privacy Principles document lays out a set of principles that aim to guide the development of new specifications for the web platform, with the goal of eventually publishing it as a W3C Statement. This effort builds on previous work by the W3C’s Privacy Interest Group and the TAG’s Security & Privacy Questionnaire and Ethical Web Principles, which underscore the importance of respecting users’ privacy in web design and development.
We welcome your feedback on the document. We encourage you to leave that feedback in the document’s Github repository. We would like comments before the end of April.
