EuroPriSe: European Privacy Seal

The European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe) projects aims to establish a Trans-European Privacy Seal certifying IT products and IT-based services compliance with European regulations on privacy and data security after the completion of a specific two-step procedure: an evaluation by accepted legal and IT experts and a crosschecking of the evaluation report by an accredited certification body. The certification scheme is based on a German state privacy seal awarded by the Independent Centre for Privacy Protection Schleswig-Holstein. EuroPriSe will offer a transparent procedure to grant the European Privacy Seal as well as a procedure to admit European Privacy Seal experts and accredit certification bodies throughout Europe. The public evaluation report especially provided and published for each certified product offers benchmarks to compare competing products. The seal visualizes that a product has been checked and approved by an independent privacy organisation and thus indicates a trustworthy product fostering consumer protection, civil rights and acceptance of privacy by marketing mechanisms. The market validation project will provide a unique selling preposition for European IT business. The European Privacy Seal will increase market transparency for privacy relevant products leading to an enlargement of the market for Privacy Enhancing Technologies and finally an increase of trust in IT. The market validation of EuroPriSe bears estimated total investment costs for the partners of 2 mill. EUR. The eTen program will support EuroPriSe over a period of 18 month with 1,3 mill. EUR. Detailed information on EuroPriSe and the EuroPriSe project are available at www.european-privacy-seal.eu or the project coordinator ICPP (Project Management Kirsten Bock, Phone +49 431 988 1200, www.datenschutzzentrum.de).
