Compact Policy Summary

P3P - The Platform for Privacy Preferences Project - addresses the twin goals of meeting the data privacy expectations of consumers on the Web while assuring that the medium remains available and productive for electronic commerce. P3P enables sites to express privacy practices and the user to express their preferences about those practices and have their agent (e.g. their browser) act on it accordingly. The user agent can then provide the user a safe and seamless experience.

A P3P interaction results in an agreement between the service and the user agent regarding the practices with a user's implicit (i.e., click stream) or explicit (i.e., user-answered) data. The agreement may include service side permissions regarding the storage and release of data written by the service and accepted by the user agent. Allowing client side storage of user data in a data repository increases the user's access to and control of data, while providing a mechanism so that the user need not repeatedly enter solicited information. This architecture enhances personal privacy while providing richer, easier access to Web services.

P3P is based on established W3C specifications, which include HTTP, Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Resource Description Format (RDF).
