For euConsent, one very important aspect is the use of a common vocabulary, especially having partners in different countries but also because we aim to raise the issue of safety in online environment for children, anywhere in Europe.
Therefore one activity of our research phase consists in gatherering a glossary or terms, provisions, descriptions and definitions used in the field of age verification and parental consent, to build a common vocabulary.
As the project progresses, the glossary will be updated by adding more terms.
- EU Acquis – a definition found in EU law/case law
- National Law – a definition in one or more member states law
- International Standards – a definition that appears in International Standards Organisation documents
- National Standards – a definition that appears in a national standards body’s documents e.g. ANSI, BSI, etc.
- Journalistic sources
- Custom and Practice – as a term is generally understood within the context of the euCONSENT project, even if this is not formally written down anywhere
- Self-Defined – terms specifically defined for the euCONSENT project
