Terms and conditions are central in acquiring user consent by service providers. Such documents are frequently highly complex and unreadable, placing doubts on the validity of so called 'informed consent'. While readability and web accessibility have been major themes for some time in HCI, the core principles have yet to be applied beyond webpage content(More)
Since 2000, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) has seen a turn to the artistic, looking at more provocative, cultural and social experiences. In doing so HCI is increasingly collaborating with artists who engage with real world data. Much of this work focuses on engaging the public in the spectacle of interactive experiences. In contrast, this paper takes a(More)
(2016) "This has to be the cats": personal data legibility in networked sensing systems. The Nottingham ePrints service makes this work by researchers of the University of Nottingham available open access under the following conditions. A note on versions: The version presented here may differ from the published version or from the version of record. If you(More)
The regulatory climate is in a process of change. Design, having been implicated for some time, is now explicitly linked to law. This paper recognises the heightened role of designers in the regulation of ambient interactive technologies. Taking account of incumbent legal requirements is difficult. Legal rules are convoluted, uncertain, and not geared(More)
Whilst being addressed in terms of traditional online interactions, the concept of consent has only recently seen attention in respect of pervasive systems. This paper takes the position that consent (online), as it currently stands, is a fiction. It reflects only the most basic requirements of the original concept and, as such, should not be transferred to(More)
Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) are frequently unread as a consequence of their complexity and length. Readability formulas are used to objectively measure this complexity, but ironically their outputs are also unreadable to many. This motivated the development of a chrome extension called Literatin that compares the complexity of popular fictional(More)
With ever increasing developments in computing technology, approaches to attaining informed consent are becoming outdated. In light of this ongoing change, researchers have begun to propose several new mechanisms to meet the emerging challenges of consent in pervasive settings. Unfortunately a particular problem arises when considering consent in the(More)
