The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)  published a Privacy Workshop Report and minutes that recommend next steps for keeping privacy promises when exchanging sensitive information on the Web. Privacy and access control experts from America, Australia, Asia and Europe met in October 2006 in Ispra, Italy, to study Web privacy issues and solutions. W3C would like to thank the Joint Research Center of the European Commission for hosting that Workshop on Languages for Privacy Policy Negotiation and Semantics-Driven Enforcement.

On the Web, information collection and transfer are routine, often conducted by multiple parties in a manner transparent to the user. As more parties are granted access to information, it becomes more challenging to track chains of privacy promises and to enforce them. Tools can help, but tools require descriptions of access privileges, and such descriptions can be hard to formulate when so many parties are involved.
