Providing relevant recommendations requires access to user profile data. Current social networking ecosystems allow third party services to request user authorisation for accessing profile data, thus enabling cross-domain recommendation. However these ecosystems create user lock-in and social networking data silos, as the profile data is neither portable nor interoperable. We argue that innovations in reconciling heterogeneous data sources must be also be matched by innovations in architecture… Expand
Trust-aware privacy preferences for information sharing on the web of data
The Web has significantly simplified the creation and sharing of information. However, this evolution has brought about many challenges especially with regards to user privacy when sharing sensitiveExpand
ProProtect3: An Approach for Protecting User Profile Data from Disclosure, Tampering, and Improper Use in the Context of WebID
TLDR
This article analyzes the risks that affect the knowledge stored in WebID-based user profiles and proposes ProProtect3, a approach that enables identity owners to create customized filters for sensitive data, to verify the profile data integrity, and to restrict the rights of delegatees. Expand
Protecting User Profile Data in WebID-Based Social Networks Through Fine-Grained Filtering
TLDR
This paper presents an approach for applying requester-specific filters to cloud-stored user profile data in WebID-based distributed social networks and demonstrates the solution by integrating the approach into a WebID identity provider and profile management platform. Expand
Privacy Aware and Faceted User-Profile Management Using Social Data 1
In the past few years, the growing number of personal information shared on the Web (through Web 2.0 applications) increased awareness regarding privacy and personal data. Recent studies showed thatExpand
EpicRec: Towards Practical Differentially Private Framework for Personalized Recommendation
TLDR
The first Enhanced Privacy-built-In Client for Personalized Recommendation (EpicRec) system that performs the data perturbation on the client side to protect users' privacy and is an important step towards designing a practical system that enables companies to monetize on user data using high quality personalized services with strong provable privacy protection to gain user acceptance and adoption of their services.

A Privacy Preference Manager for the Social Semantic Web
TLDR
This paper describes the formal semantic model of PPO and presents My Privacy Manager, a privacy preference manager that let users create privacy preferences using the aforementioned ontology and restrict access to their data to third-party users based on profile features such as interests, relationships and common attributes. Expand
A Privacy Preference Ontology (PPO) for Linked Data
TLDR
This paper proposes a lightweight vocabulary — on top of WAC — called the Privacy Preference Ontology (PPO) that enables users to create fine-grained privacy preferences for their data. Expand
PPO & PPM 2.0: extending the privacy preference framework to provide finer-grained access control for the web of data
TLDR
This paper extends PPO with new classes and properties to define further fine-grained privacy preferences and provides a new light-weight vocabulary, called the Privacy Preference Manager Ontology (PPMO), to define characteristics about privacy preference managers. Expand
Portable profiles and recommendation based media services: Will users embrace them?
User data and user profiles are very important in current web based business models and applications. Advertising revenue is to a large extent generated based on implicit and explicit user data. WeExpand
Privacy Aspects of Recommender Systems
TLDR
It is concluded that a considerable effort is still required to develop practical recommendation solutions that provide adequate privacy guarantees, while at the same time facilitating the delivery of high-quality recommendations to their users. Expand

Privacy-enhanced collaborative filtering
TLDR
This work investigates how a decentralized approach to users’ profiles storage could mitigate some of the privacy concerns of CF and proposes that the users hide or obfuscate parts of their profile. Expand

TLDR
This work describes an algorithm whereby a community of users can compute a public "aggregate" of their data that does not expose individual users' data, and uses homomorphic encryption to allow sums of encrypted vectors to be computed and decrypted without exposing individual data. Expand

PocketLens: Toward a personal recommender system
TLDR
The new PocketLens collaborative filtering algorithm along with five peer-to-peer architectures for finding neighbors are presented and evaluated in a series of offline experiments, showing that Pocketlens can run on connected servers, on usually connected workstations, or on occasionally connected portable devices, and produce recommendations that are as good as the best published algorithms to date.

Personalization versus Privacy: An Empirical Examination of the Online Consumer’s Dilemma
TLDR
This research develops a parsimonious model to predict consumers’ usage of online personalization as a result of the tradeoff between their value for personalization and concern for privacy, and finds that a consumer’s intent to use personalization services is positively influenced by her trust in the vendor.
