Project description

English EN

Citizen scientists protecting your privacy

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU law that requires organisations to safeguard personal data and uphold the privacy rights of anyone in EU territory. Citizen scientists can play a valuable role in ensuring privacy and providing a better understanding of what information is tracked online. The EU-funded CSI-COP project will mobilise citizen scientists from across Europe and beyond to investigate the different types of trackers in cookies and apps. Moreover, it will develop methods to preserve privacy in the collection of data. The project will offer training material to informally instruct citizen scientists on the GDPR, aiming to produce a taxonomy of trackers that will subsequently be used to create an open-access repository.
