The survey shows that the impact on businesses could be significant with consumers engaging less with companies they don’t trust, but there is also evidence that transparency and consumer choice can improve favourability.

The TRUSTe 2012 UK Consumer Data Privacy Study was conducted online by Harris Interactive from 31 May to 6 June, just after enforcement of the EU Cookie Directive began. The research findings will be launched at the TRUSTe Data Privacy Summit in London today where representatives from global brands, publishers, advertisers, law firms and regulators are meeting to consider how best to manage data privacy and the potential impact of the research findings on UK businesses.

The headline findings on UK consumer attitudes to online privacy are:

94% of consumers worry about their online privacy - 54% are more concerned than one year ago
27% of consumers are more concerned with mobile privacy than website privacy
Consumers engage less with companies they do not trust – leading to lower purchases (29%), app downloads (68%) and sharing of information (86%)
Consumers believe advertisers, publishers and ad networks are all responsible for safeguarding their privacy, but trust themselves most

TRUSTe’s research also highlights that transparency is key if businesses are to address these concerns. For example, 79% of consumers are aware of online behavioural advertising (OBA), 53% do not like it and 42% believe that personally identifiable information (PII) is attached to tracking activity. However favourability towards this kind of advertising almost doubles when consumers are assured that any data that could identify them personally is not used.

Consumers also reward companies for good privacy practices with 51% more inclined to click on an advertisement that gives them the option to opt out of online behavioural advertising and 55% are more inclined to do business with publishers and advertisers that give them the option to opt-out.

Advertisers can increase favourability by 42% through participation in the EDAA self-regulation programme and businesses can increase trust and engagement through independent privacy certification schemes. 60% of UK consumers said they checked for independent verification of privacy standards. The research shows that TRUSTe is the most familiar UK privacy brand with one in two UK consumers recognising the green TRUSTe certified privacy seal.

Speaking in London ahead of TRUSTe’s Data Privacy Summit, Chris Babel, CEO TRUSTe said: “The recent EU Cookie Directive has put third party tracking and online behavioural advertising under the spotlight in the UK and forced advertisers, publishers and brands to consider their data privacy practices and how they communicate these to their consumers.

Although our research shows that consumer concern in the UK is growing, it is reassuring to see how positively consumers respond to advertisers who adopt self-regulation schemes such as the EDAA programme and seek out businesses that demonstrate a commitment to good privacy practices through an independent privacy certification programme.

At TRUSTe we are committed, through our research programme and events such as the Data Privacy Summit in London today, to providing the consumer insight and solutions that businesses need to adapt to the constantly changing privacy and compliance landscape and ensure they remain ahead of the curve.”

The TRUSTe 2012 UK Consumer Data Privacy Study was conducted online by Harris Interactive, on behalf of TRUSTe among a total of 1,027 UK adults aged 18 and older from the Harris Interactive Online Consumer Panel. The interviews were conducted from 31 May to 6 June 2012 via a self-administered online survey, averaging 19 minutes in length. Complete survey methodologies, including weighting variables and significance notations are available on request.
