One of the legal foundations for collecting your data is your informed consent. But what does 'informed' mean, when in practice, that means thoughtlessly clicking on a button gives permission to hundreds of companies?

Because in in one-click, 0.0146 seconds, you might accept 835 privacy policies. It will take hundreds of hours to read all of these conditions. So, let’s do it together!

 

‘0.0146 seconds’ is a collective read out loud performance in which everybody can participate – An act against the exploitation mechanics of the data economy. For the sake of control over personal information.

Dutch Design Week | 2019

Privacy Policies: Legal jargon, written in paradox summations, lengthy sentences, and complicated vocabulary. Yearly, the average internet users click ‘agree’ to 1700 privacy regulations. But besides this ‘active permission,’ this click may have multiple destinations. Companies ally in the so-called Trusted Third Party Hosting Network (TTPHN), to collect and share information, business to business. Permission for one automatically means consent for the others.

 

The book ‘One Click’ is a collection of 835 privacy policies which are accepted with one-click on ‘got it’ at www.dailymail.co.uk. The book symbolizes the fragile position of the Internet user and emphasizes the lack of control on personal data.

Approve hundreds of privacy conditions in one click. It sounds unreal, but it is more often the rule than the exception. Granting "deliberate consent" is one of the bases for the collection and use of personal data, but in practice this means clicking without thinking –– The guest is Kathalijne Buitenweg, Member of Parliament of GroenLinks The Green Left and chair of the temporary committee on digital future.

Kathalijne Buitenweg (GroenLinks) during a debate on the future of the information society in the House of Representatives:

"Julia Janssen shows the tremendous importance of art and culture in making us think about what is happening in our society. Secondly, she shows the absurdity of the premise of permission. Because how can this be 'informed consent?'"
