Research indicates that many people do not understand the complexity of data privacy laws, and have limited knowledge of how the increasing integration of commercial, third party tools impacts how their data might be used. At the same time, new efforts such as the GDPR and California Consumer Privacy Act promise to significantly enhance user ownership and control over their data. This webinar will highlight effective approaches to developing and presenting privacy policies for end users, with an emphasis on building data literacy and trust among low income and vulnerable users of online legal help systems in a rapidly evolving privacy landscape. We will draw on efforts that take a rights-based approach to this work, including findings from user testing of online legal help systems with vulnerable communities that highlight the importance of this work.
