Next ONLINE Digital Privacy Salon 26/04/22: How tech creates privacy issues

In this Salon we’ll be looking at how tech creates privacy issues, often inadvertently,  sometimes with intent. We’ll be examining what are the causes, who benefits from our lack of privacy and if we can have any influence on tech companies with respect to our own data.

Next ONLINE Digital Privacy Salon 10/03/22: Dark Patterns


In this Salon, Arianna Rossi, researcher at SnT, University of Luxembourg, will take us on a journey into the world of Dark Patterns

Online services are designed to offer the best experience to their users and accommodate their needs. However, online services can also use manipulative design strategies known as “dark patterns” to trick users into accepting privacy-invasive practices and make it overly difficult to access or erase their personal information. But how pervasive are dark patterns? And are people aware and able to respond to them? How might we free the web from them? In this interactive presentation, we are going to answer these and other questions.

Next ONLINE Digital Privacy Salon 28/09/21: Big Tech VS The Public?

Apple putting spyware on IPhones? Facebook teaming up with Ray-Ban to put spyware on faces? Instagram researchers leaking info that the platform is harmful for teenage girls?

We know that big tech companies are motivated by profits but what can we do when those companies are acting in harmful or potentially ways?

In this edition of the Salon we will take a look at the developments mentioned above and others like them and try to see if there is anything we can do beyond giving up digital communications completely to protect ourselves from the effects of Big Tech.
