What is a privacy profile ?
Every company or institution has a public privacy profile defined by privacy legal requirements that are found in 131 countries (so far). Laws that spell out what is required, what is exempt and what is not legally compliant, when it comes to processing your data.
In all of these laws, a privacy notice is required to tell people what privacy they can expect, and it must include the identity and contact of the privacy controller.
How Does A Privacy Profile Work?
A privacy profile is hosted on the Open Privacy Network (OPN), where it is verified and monitored independently of any organisation or government.
A privacy profile consists of globally required privacy identity information provided in standardised format and is the first step towards fixing systemic privacy issues observed when people click ‘I agree” to Terms of Service an Privacy Policies, without ever understanding what they have agreed too.

Open Privacy Network (OPN)
Is an open network that uses law and standards to provide an independent place for legal entities to post a privacy profile which makes privacy services more operational
A privacy profile gathers a bunch of required privacy information together into a single profile that can easily be viewed, used and verified. This makes companies open and as a result, it is much easier for companies to be transparent.
Legal Entity Privacy Identifier
The legal entity identifier is a registered identifier combined with the controller category, nature of processing and the type of privacy risk that people should expect from a legally registered organisation.
