This chapter relates to the mechanisms developed within PRIME for privacy assurance checking: that is, for providing a greater degree of assurance to the user about the treatment of their personal data. This process involves checking that the services-side satisfies the requirements of the user with respect to the protection of their data, and then checking that the services-side really can and does comply with such policies. We also consider how to inject trust into the framework.

The following section provides an introduction to privacy assurance checking, giving an overview of the framework and the model, and how these fit into PRIME. The rest of the chapter contains sections covering more details about the system, comparison with related work, future plans for this work and conclusions.
