1. What are the possible privacy preferences someone might have?

  • Setting levels of access

  • Physical space

    • Privacy settings depend on where you are / environment

    • Considerations in physical space applying to digital space

  • Exceptions - overriding all else

    • “Low-friction” easy way to do this - e.g. switching on “do not disturb”

    • Based on temporary circumstance


    • Time limits

    • Locations

    • Nature of physical space

    • Specific people/companies/sites

      • Groups of trust

    • Purpose/goal/task - specific

      • Who is using the information?

    • App-specific

    • Threshold for value exchange

      • What am I willing to give up to get/accomplish what I want/need → User-determined value

      • Bundling - forced to give up information without granular choices

        • (from UX perspective, bundling can help to see the bigger picture/impact of sharing information)

      • Understanding technical limitations / motivations (what will it be used for?) → helps with trust

2. Personal information that someone might want to protect

  • Location

  • Anonymous log-in names (e.g. to video conferences)

    • detection of information - device name, serial number, op system, location, end-point ID, MAC address

  • attention/consciousness (e.g. push notifications, amber alerts)

    • Limiting interruptions

    • Protected resources

  • Ways of communicating


    • Accessing services on the internet

    • setting/storing/applying GPII preferences

    • Social networks

    • Mobile device

      • Location

      • mic/camera input

    • etc

3. How is private information being used currently?


  • Create a list of misuses of information on the wiki? - what we want to avoid/protect against

  • have a community meeting about senior's fraud?

  1. what constitutes private information?

  2. what is being gathered and for what purpose?

  3. what are the conflicts between privacy requirements and what is actually being done today?

    1. What can practically be done?

    2. What can elicit further understanding - e.g. value, threshold value

      • reframing/highlighting what’s going on

  4. are there constraints in fulfilling privacy wishes?

  5. Who are vulnerable in this context?

Other Notes:

  • Map out the complex problems and where we can intervene?

  • Different ways of packaging/presenting it

  • Information-driven

  • Service-driven

  • CSS inheritance / weighting system - exception classes ?

  • Work done with AARP, CARP? ( mapped of groups of trust, officials who access your info, etc

    • Creating a trust map

      • from intimate to public

      • from high worth to disposable

      • from high risk to no risk

    • Personal information

  • Include read and write access?

    • E.g. Facebook - others having permission to post on your wall/timeline

    • Apps that invite your friends (spam)

  • Privacy firewall

    • All or nothing

    • Ask me first

  • Inferred information - services that exchange data can infer more information about you by sharing their information - inference engines

    • Increased risk to user

    • Often used in senior’s fraud - (organise a community meeting about this?)

  • No labels
