SCOPE Europe is dedicated to improving and maintaining the trust of users in digital products and services. We achieve this goal by promoting consumer protection in the digital world. Here, one key focus is on leveraging the potential of service providers to strengthen data protection through their own activities.
To this end, we commit ourselves to compliance with codes of practice or comparable self-regulatory measures. Through such voluntary commitments, it is possible to respond quickly and pragmatically to many of the challenges in the digital world – and do so faster than could, for example, the legislator.
Promoting consumer protection is a dynamic process. The rules and regulations to which we have committed ourselves must be continuously monitored to ensure a proper alignment with emerging social and technological developments.
We also have a raft of other measures to support trust and security in the internet, such as consumer information campaigns, strengthening best practices in personal digital security, and drafting recommendations and guidelines for companies.
