Chapter 15. SELF-REGULATION AND PRIVACY > Today's Self-Regulatory Leaders

Today's Self-Regulatory Leaders

Many groups seek to regulate themselves. More online privacy groups are developed as time goes by. In this section we discuss several of the older groups with stronger track records. These groups have contributed significantly to the policy discussions on digital privacy.

The Online Privacy Alliance (OPA)

The Online Privacy Alliance (OPA) is mentioned throughout this book. OPA was formed solely to “foster on online environment that respects consumer privacy.” This is an ad hoc group whose membership ranges from very small net-based organizations to very large companies that are not exclusively associated with the online world. It has some simple principles intended to encourage the development of sound privacy practices and to build an understanding of self-regulatory environments. Effective enforcement of self-regulation has always been at the top of the list of OPA concerns.
