In unserer Corona-App Studie testen wir den Einfluss verschiedener Faktoren auf die Nutzungsbereitschaft versch. Typen von Apps.
Überraschendes erstes Ergebnis: Datenschutz ist den Menschen wichtig (Corona-Eindämmung aber auch!).
Lächelndes Gesicht mit geöffnetem Mund
Our study underlines what privacy advocates have known for years: When people have to use Whatsapp or Youtube over alternatives it's not because they don't care for their privacy. #bigtech needs to adopt #privacyfirst #pbd. Full paper here:
35% of our participants believe that most of their apps collect data without their consent. More than 80% are concerned that this data is shared with third-party companies like ad trackers.
Two-thirds think that entertainment apps like youtube and Netflix track not only their behavior but also their whereabouts. 87% think that this data is not only collected by one company but also shared with others.

@zeitonline berichtet über die Details des ursprünglichen Plans Handy-Verkehrsdaten zur Corona-Eindämmung zu benutzen. Ich hab darüber mit @mlaaff gesprochen.

3. The last thing I want to highlight: we attempted to replicate previous work in the area to see whether our approach leads to different results. Here is a breakdown in a table, see the paper for details:
2. Third party scripts often contact additional services. 40% request data from other companies. More importantly: In 62% of the cases, these "fourth parties" fluctuate.
That's bad news if you own a website and want to know upfront what gets send to your visitors in your name.
1. Like the title says: when scanning websites for scripts or cookies, always look beyond the front page. We found that visiting 100 subsites is useful if you want to get a good idea of the third parties a webpage is using.
Great overview of similarities and differences between the #GDPR and #CCPA by fpf and onetrust:
