EU-Unternehmen ohne Verständnis für die Sorgen der Verbraucher in Bezug auf Online-Tracking

BRÜSSEL, November 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Neue Untersuchungsergebnisse von TRUSTe in Sachen Datenschutz zeigen, dass in ganz Europa Unternehmen intensives Online-Tracking betreiben. Die Verbraucher sind sich dessen bewusst und sie gehen davon aus, dass Websites erst ihre Erlaubnis einholen, bevor ihr Online-Verhalten festgehalten wird. Doch trotz der Einführung der EU-Cookie-Richtlinie im Mai 2011 holt nur eine Minderheit der Unternehmen die Einwilligung der Nutzer für das Ablegen von Cookies ein.

Der TRUSTe 2012 EU Consumer Privacy Index ist die erste Studie, in der eine umfassende Analyse der aktuellen Einstellung der Verbraucher zum Datenschutz und der Unternehmenspraktiken in der EU vorgenommen wird. Die umfangreiche Studie erfasste über 4.000 Verbraucher (die Durchführung erfolgte online im Rahmen der iOmnibus-Studie von Ipsos MORI in Frankreich, Deutschland, Großbritannien und den Niederlanden) und 200 Top-Websites (kompiliert mithilfe tiefem Scanning durch den Website-Tracker und die Cookie-Audit-Technologie von TRUSTe. Es wurden die 50 Websites mit einem Top-Ranking laut Alexa.com in jedem der vier Länder überprüft.

In der Hauptsache ergaben sich folgende Erkenntnisse:

  • 86 % der Befragten in den Niederlanden wussten über Internet-Browser-Cookies Bescheid, verglichen mit 81 % in Großbritannien, 78 % in Deutschland und 59 % in Frankreich.
  • Die Top-50 Websites in Frankreich speichern fast doppelt so viele Cookies von Drittanbietern (434) als niederländische Websites (237).
  • 71 % der französischen Befragten fürchteten um ihre Online-Privatsphäre, verglichen mit 69 % in Großbritannien, 62 % in Deutschland und 48 % in den Niederlanden.

In Bezug auf die EU-Cookie-Richtlinie, zeigte die Untersuchung:

  • 79 % der niederländischen Befragten wussten, dass die EU-Cookie-Richtlinie verlangt, dass Unternehmen die Erlaubnis der Benutzer für die Speicherung von Tracking-Daten einholen müssen, im Vergleich zu 63 % in Großbritannien, 51 % in Deutschland und 26 % in Frankreich.
  • 82 % der Deutschen erwarten von den Unternehmen, dass diese die EU-Cookie-Richtlinie einhalten; 76 % tun dies in Großbritannien und 62 % in den Niederlanden.
  • 53 % der französischen Befragten erwarten von den Unternehmen die Einhaltung, aber nur 44 % planen den Besuch von Unternehmens-Websites, welche der EU-Cookie-Richtlinie entsprechen.
  • 12 % der Top-50 Websites im Vereinigten Königreich und 32 % der niederländischen Websites hatten Schritte unternommen, um die Einhaltung der Richtlinie zu gewährleisten, z. B. Pop-up-Fenster, Banner oder Registerkarten zur Unterrichtung der Benutzer über Cookies auf der jeweiligen Website. Keine der Top-50-Websites in Frankreich oder Deutschland hatte dies getan.

EU Managing Director bei TRUSTe, Danilo Labovic, sagte:

"Die Untersuchung zeigt, dass es eine große Kluft gibt zwischen den Erwartungen der Verbraucher in Bezug auf den Online-Datenschutz und der gängigen Praxis der meisten Unternehmen. Dieses Fehlverhalten der Unternehmen hat ganz erhebliche Folgen, denn 36 % der Befragten verzichten auf den Besuch von Unternehmens-Websites in Frankreich, weil Sie Bedenken hinsichtlich des Datenschutzes haben, und 34 % in Deutschland verzichten auf die Nutzung von Smartphone-Apps, weil sie um ihre Privatsphäre fürchten.

In allen vier Ländern waren es durchschnittlich 68 %, die von einer Einhaltung der jüngsten EU-Cookie-Richtlinie ausgingen, und durchschnittlich 41 % wollen nur Websites besuchen, auf denen die Einhaltung gewährleistet ist. Da die Top-50 Websites in Deutschland und Frankreich keinerlei Maßnahmen getroffen haben, um die Besucher ihrer Internetseiten über Cookies und Tracking-Funktionen zu informieren, besteht diesbezüglich offenbar kein ausreichendes Problembewusstsein.

Die gute Nachricht ist aber, dass es Maßnahmen gibt, welche die Unternehmen ergreifen können, um diese Bedenken auszuräumen. Die Untersuchung ergab auch, dass 62 % in Frankreich, 57 % in Deutschland und Großbritannien und 49 % in den Niederlanden einer Website mehr Vertrauen entgegen brachten, wenn die Website eine Zertifizierung oder ein Gütesiegel einer unabhängigen Stelle in Bezug auf den Datenschutz vorweisen konnte.

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
