The Data Transparency Lab is an inter-institutional collaboration to support research and development in the areas of online personal data transparency. DTL is fostering a community of scientific researchers, policymakers, industry representatives, and technologists, which aims to shine a light on current practices in the area of personal data on the internet, as well as developing tools and programs that empower individual users by creating awareness and giving them control over their personal data.

The research project "Toward Transparent Privacy Practices: Facilitating Comparisons of Privacy Policies" ranked amongst the top third of all submissions and was awarded a travel grant. On November 16-17, 2015, Tobias Dehling will present the current results of the research project at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA.
