Consent Receipt --> Re: Security of Personal Wellness Data - CEA

Thanks for sharing David. 

In regards to consent and notice, I have been working diligently the last two years to develop a common consent and notice format for creating consent records, or what we call a "Consent Receipt" We have v0.7 of a specification posted at the Kantara Initiative github repository, as well as a demo api for PING to review. <> (v0.7 spec)

Demo -

We are promoting this as a way to develop consistent notice for sharing sensitive personal data. 

Kind Regards,

Mark Lizar

Consumers are making decisions to balance among technological benefits and privacy outcomes. CEA’s privacy guidelines <x-msg://69/CorporateSite/media/gla/CEA-Guiding-Principles-on-the-Privacy-and-Security-of-Personal-Wellness-Data-102215.pdf> can help companies to earn consumer trust by encouraging consistent personal wellness data management. 
> The Principles begin with Security, which underlies all privacy protections. Good security is the foundation of good data management. Without it, data is vulnerable to unauthorized disclosure.

Concise notice puts those policies in an understandable format, stripping out the legalese and replacing it with straightforward statements relevant to consumers.

> Fairness is a forward-thinking principle. As we learn from big data, it will be possible to make better decisions about all kinds of things, from how we manage our health to how multinational businesses allocate resources. However, any decision making process, whether human or automated, is vulnerable to unfairness. This principle reminds companies to be on guard against the possibility that decisions based on data analytics could create prejudicial outcomes for consumers. CEA is unaware of any instances of this happening, but the consequences are serious enough that we believe everyone should be vigilant.

> Finally, Law Enforcement Response speaks to company and consumer concerns about surveillance. By disclosing how they respond to law enforcement requests, companies can give consumers certainty about their data.
