Frictionless Privacy

Using standards, provide our customers with frictionless privacy so that people can easily see surveillance, this make digital transparency for meaningful consent possible, and privacy operational

Through Our Work

The founders of OpenConsent have been involved in developing International standards for notice, consent and surveillance for over a decade.

Through extensive engagement with regulators, industry and community, OpenConsent has bootstrapped and participated in many projects that are pioneering identity relationship management, privacy and trust today.

Leading with consent

OpenConsent produced a series of workshops with leading experts and innovators in the United Kingdom and around the world to develop a consent by design protocol, for an ‘easy for people’ privacy and security framework.

We found, through extensive privacy standards and product market research, that companies and people, today, have an impossible job of understanding a mutual state of privacy, particularly with bespoke privacy policies.

The current tools of a privacy policy and customised (closed) privacy notices don’t provide a consistent/usable user experience, nor do they present a consistent level of secure privacy information or enough contextual integrity to trust services.

This has made modern privacy un-usable and with all of the data breaches people feel very exposed and incapable of addressing privacy risks. At OpenConsent we offer companies the opportunity to make privacy usable and bridge this gap.

OpenConsent protects brand and engages with their supply chain and customers. Everything we do sets the global bar for usable and operational privacy.
