P3P (Platform for Privacy Preferences)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
P3P is an industry standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium that helps users control the amount of information that Web sites collects about them. The concern is that Web sites collect personal information about users that may be sold or distributed to other sites. P3P is a response by consumer advocacy groups to privacy concerns. Governments are also concerned about privacy issues, and P3P is being developed as a system that can be used to comply with future government privacy directives.
