Abstract

Assistive technologies enable individuals to perform a function that might be difficult or they otherwise are unable to do. However, the provision of context-awareness interfaces and accessible information everywhere bring with them the potential for data violations, with concomitant privacy issues such as spying and exploitation. Privacy preservation can thus constrain deployment. The aim of this paper is to promote user sensitiveness in privacy policy and tackle malicious data extraction and selling, with the focus on assistive technologies for a diverse mix of services for use in applications ranging from healthcare to smart shopping.
