Data Rights Protocol
Standardizing and streamlining consumer data rights requests
The Data Rights Protocol (DRP) is a technical standard for exchanging data rights requests under CCPA. The project began at Consumer Reports Digital Lab in summer 2021, and was announced at a virtual event hosted by MIT Media Lab in October 2021. The protocol is co-developed by a consortium of implementing companies who serve in the role of authorized agent, privacy infrastructure provider, and/or covered business. You can explore the Data Rights Protocol on GitHub and let us know your feedback here.
