Privacy Label version history
The label has gone through a lot of development. We tested the label with numerous societal groups, such as universities, companies, privacy experts, technologists, and individuals.
BETA 2111 - November 2021
This version of the label focusses on improvements in design, thanks to support from the SIDN Foundation, and designers Martijn and Marleen.
- The label now comes with its own icons.
- More visual emphasis is placed on the "river of data" on the left of the label.
- The default style drops the bullet points in the lists.
- The code button is now an actual button.
- The JSON structure added a meta section, and the language parameter was moved there. The advantage is that all other sections's data now is being displayed in the label, offering more consistency for library development. The data collection section no longer uses

- The data collection section of the JSON standard no longer uses booleans to express whether a data-type is used. Not the JSON is more conceptually consistent: only things that are being 'done' are in the JSON. This keeps the JSON short. At the same time also improves future expandability, as the data collection types now contain empty dictionaries which may one day be filled with more detailed explanations, should there be a demand for that.
- There is now documentation on how the JSON and JS library work.
The label creation tool saw many upgrades.
- Redesigned to be in line with the website's new style.
- Added explanation videos for each section.
- Added a login-system so more labels can be managed by saving them on our server.
Alpha - 2019 to 2021
Previous versions were under intense development, and have changed tremendously. Some big changes over the years were:
- Moving to a vertical instead of a horizontal design.
- Adding the json into the label embed code itself
- Stopping development of the "data mapping" feature, and focussing on the label itself.
