LITE – Label for IoT Transparency Enhancement


We provide clear information about the way IoT devices collect and handle your data. Our solution is rooted in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and has been user validated. Our Label for IoT Transparency Enhancement (LITE) helps protect the privacy of people who use Internet of Things devices. It does so by bringing important privacy facts to the attention of users, whereas normally this info is buried under a ton of paper. Unlike other proposed designs, ours has been validated via usability tests, so we know that non-experts and experts alike can benefit from these labels. The design also considers feedback from security, privacy and legal experts, and it is rooted in the GDPR. The label is augmented with an on-line interface, which provides search and sort functionality, as well as additional visualizations and details that don't fit on a printed label.
