DRAFT Platform for Privacy Preferences Interop Talking Points
21 June 2000
New York, NY USA

Talking Points:
	The Interop: Over @@30@@ leading technology companies and privacy 
advocates will gather in New York to conduct the first public tests of 
W3C's emerging Web privacy standard, the Platform for Privacy Preferences 
(P3P). The purpose of this interoperability testing day is to provide P3P 
developers the opportunity to test their products with other P3P services 
and provide input into the P3P design process. The tools tested today are 
early versions of P3P-compliant tools expected to be offered to end users 
in the coming year.

	Function: P3P-enabled services will enhance user control by putting 
privacy policies where users can find them, present policies in a form that 
users can understand them, and enable users to act on what they see in 
policies more easily. For ecommerce services and other Web sites, P3P can 
be used to offer seamless browsing experience for customers without leaving 
them guessing about privacy. P3P project will enable the marketplace to 
deliver software tools and services that enhance user's knowledge of Web 
sites' information practices and give users more control over their 
personal information.

	Interop Participants: A variety of software and services will be tested:

	5 P3P-compatible Web clients (includes software compatible with both 
Microsoft Internet Explorer and the Mozilla browser.
	3 P3P policy generators, to enable sites to translate their privacy 
policies into P3P.
	8 major Web sites with P3P-compliant privacy policies (includes AT&T, 
AOL, Center for Democracy and Technology, FTC?, TrustE, Hewlett-Packard, 
IBM, Microsoft, Proctor & Gamble, White House?.)
	A complete list of all participant's software/services is at @@URI@@.

	P3P Draws International Participation: P3P enables privacy policies to be 
read in a variety of languages, so that surfers can travel to sites around 
the world and remain aware of their privacy rights. The P3P privacy 
vocabulary is adaptable to cover the diversity of privacy regulations 
around the world. P3P-compliant software from Germany and Japan will be 
demonstrated at this Interop. A second interop event is planned for Venice, 
Italy on 11 September 2000.

	P3P Status: P3P is a technology standard under development at the World 
Wide Web Consortium. Designed with the active involvement of leading 
Internet technology companies, privacy advocates and regulators from around 
the world, and major commercial users, P3P represents the broadest 
technical consensus on how to design tools that enhance privacy and 
commerce on the Web. Currently in draft form, the P3P specification will 
advance through the W3C process toward a final standard over the next year. 
The experience of implementers around the world, including those 
participating at this Interop, will be critical in shaping the final 
technology design. The latest draft can be found at http://www.w3.org/TR/P3P.
