Project Description

The CSI-COP project will investigate GDPR compliance to better understand how far we are being tracked-by-default as we use the Internet visiting websites and apps on our mobile devices. CSI-COP will engage citizen scientists to address the growing concerns in society around privacy issues, and the methods that attempt to ensure integrity in the collection and use of data.

CSI-COP’s well connected eleven partner consortium made up of seven universities, one non-profit, two SMEs and one Association will promote and support the citizen scientists as role models, with the university partners inviting them postproject as pro-privacy champions. The unique findings on digital trackers uncovered by the citizen scientists will be systematically mapped by CSI-COP consortium producing a taxonomy of trackers. The tracker taxonomy will be used to create an online repository. The repository will be available as an open-access knowledge resource on trackers embedded in cookies and apps. The knowledge resource will be a tool useful for a variety of stakeholders including data protection researchers, GDPR compliance regulators, tech journalists, software developers, parents, teachers, higher education curriculum developers, and any organisation that provides computers for public use such as libraries.

Learn about web cookies with our new online game
(under development)

We have been developing a mobile game (both compatible with Android and iOS environments) to engage our citizen scientists to further understand the concept behind web cookies.

As our citizen scientists, you will solve puzzles, riddles and variety of locked levels in order to find the secrets of the Cookie Mansion.

~~ Work in progress ~~

The development is in its early stage, and we are looking forward to hearing feedback from you to answer your wishes.
