Voluntary Compliance Commitment Tool for European General Data Protection Regulation

Part of the Internet of Things book series (ITTCC)


This chapter will discuss and present a new model of voluntary compliance commitment tool to bridge legal gaps between European and non-European legislations, with a focus on data processing of IoT data. This tool was developed in the context of the H2020 Privacy Flag project ( that intended to develop a collective privacy protection framework enabling citizens to better control and protect their personal data. In addition to a set of tools and solution enabling the data subjects to collectively assess and control the level of risk for their privacy in the context of web, smartphone apps and Internet of Thing deployments, Privacy Flag also researched and developed a voluntary legal binding mechanism for companies located outside of Europe to align with and abide to European standards in terms of personal data protection.
