CPRA Law + Tech Series: Session 4

March 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm 1:15 pm

Co-Hosted by: California Lawyers Association Privacy Law Section and the Future of Privacy Forum

Session 4: “Dark Patterns” and Manipulative Design

Join us on Friday, March 11th, from 12:00-1:15PM Pacific Time, for an informational presentation on “dark patterns,” or the impact of manipulative design choices on data privacy.

At the heart of many privacy conversations about user choice and consent is the issue of so-called “dark patterns,” or the ways in which the design of websites, apps, and consent flows, can influence the choices people make with respect to their personal information. Increasingly, concerns about unfair design are leading lawmakers in California, Colorado, and elsewhere to prohibit manipulative design in certain contexts.

This session will provide an overview of provisions in emerging privacy legislation, discuss concrete examples of what constitutes a “dark pattern” and design elements that influence user decisions, and explore the ways in which the CPRA and other proposals may add to existing protections under the FTC Act and other laws.
