Dear LC,

   We are looking at Kantara for half of the minimum spend to be able to progress, and this is dependant on finding match funding/sponsorship in the next month to January 5th, in order for the campaign to go ahead.  (sponsorship proposal attached)

Summary Description

 We, the Open Consent Group and the Consent & Information Sharing Work Group, would like to invite the Kantara community to sponsor a beautiful civic campaign called ‘I Don’t Agree’ for Privacy Day, January 28, 2016.  The aim of this campaign is to utilize Kantara based consent and information sharing work efforts to provide a platform for a cross Kantara Initiative in 2016.   The aim is to provide a survey for people to communicate with companies about existing consent and subject access legal requirements in the UK and the US on Privacy Day.

The result will be a lot of research and engagement around personal data control, consent, and the resulting impact on the identity management industry.    The goal of the project is to start a year long project that will aim to develop an interoperable ecosystem that can meet the demands of the imminent privacy and consent regulations that are coming into force in 2017.

The objective of this funding would be to show capacity and scalability of the consent receipt and terms, then, with this in hand, produce a larger Pilot proposal that is potentially inclusive of the WG efforts in Kantara, as well as including parties external to Kantara. Many of the WG’s and supporting companies in Kantara have projects that can conceivable be placed in a single landscape.   Ideally, from my perspective, a community roadmap for collaboration would provide a shared vision and provide the support needed to turn a campaign into some that is really usable.

Working Hypothesis

That the infrastructure for people to communicate about consent and subject access with companies independently of companies silo’s is needed.  People  can assert their own consent preferences and data access policies in a discoverable manner to companies that will result in a trusted form of identity relationship management.  The resulting research would be very valuable to . build a program for developing a Kantara wide approach to emerging privacy, consent, and data access requirements that are required across industries and jurisdictions.

The Consent and Information Sharing WG has been working on a consent record specification that aims to standardize the ability for people to directly interact with companies in accordance with regulation.

The campaign would provide needed education and awareness about personal data rights under existing mandatory statutes and regulations.

Giving a workable method for people to exercise those rights, initially in 2016.  Starting with a way:

-       in the US for People to request "do you have data about me" and if so, to request "access to the data about them".

-       In the UK for people to user consent requirements to interact with companies to manage consent preferences and engage with companies in a way that people can more easily trust

Objectives and Output

·       Project Objectives: List objectives

·       Develop a website for the registration of consent and subject access requests for the privacy day
·       Providing a survey for people to:
·       Withdraw Consent or ask for a subject access report, with the click of a button: (get a receipt)
·       Person (sets campaign preferences - puts in name and petition information) (and person can stop here) or keep going.
·       Activates a withdraw consent page with (at least) 2 options:
·       Option 1:  page for company selection and a way to provide consent preferences or (User Submitted Terms) to the company
·       Option 2: select a range of companies using the Open Corporates API to send a request for a subject data report from companies that have data without consent.
·       Option 3: A reminder sent to the person on Privacy Day reminding them at 12:12 noon to click the I Dont agree button and activiate their petition, providing a method of civic ‘Mass Action’ for the use of digital rights
·       This would include developing a template letter to companies that will references the existing and emerging privacy/consent laws relevant to the company requests.
·       This would include developing a template letter from companies, that can be filled out with the use of a survey that will references the company privacy policy and the practices that the companies use to manage personal data.  I.e. transparency over privacy by design.
·       Providing a way for organisations to respond to many requests at once, and provide a custom from to people so that they can engage directly with the company.
·       Project Outputs:

·      Follow Up after Jan 28, 2016
o   provide data reporting and analytics on consent and preference use, to orgs, and facilitate  use of standards and open consent in this space

o   provide a report to all those who participate with a roadmap of activity leading up to the 2017 Privacy Day action.


The project is aimed at the consumer and company landscape in the UK and the US, but, not limited to these jurisdiction’s.  The potential reach of a 100,000 people and 10,000 companies for Jan 28, 2016, and 10x this amount of reach for 2017 with a comprehensive approach from the Kantara community.
