Privacy Xplorer enables regulators to examine how companies have updated their privacy policies in response to GDPR by leveraging state of the art NLP and a corpus of nearly 1 million privacy policies and over 100K companies.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a major overhaul of privacy regulation introduced in 2016 and enforced in 2018 in the EU. GDPR aims to give individuals greater transparency and control over the collection and use of their personal data. Specifically, GDPR requires that companies:
Provide users with the ability to access, edit and request deletion of their personal data
Provide users information on the collection and option to disable cookies
Privacy policies are internal statements that govern an organization's practices for handling personal data. Over the last twenty years, as more privacy regulations have been introduced, privacy policies have almost doubled in length and increased in complexity.
Privacy Xplorer enables regulators to analyze the impact of GDPR, specifically on whether companies allow users the rights to edit, view and delete their personal data, and whether companies specify how to disable cookies within their privacy policies. We provide dashboards that allow regulators to view a single company overtime, view regional differences, compare between industries and compare adoption rates between more popular and less popular sites.
