Abstract: The evolvement of e-government has raised users' concerns on personal data disclosure and privacy threats as more and more information is released to various governmental service providers. This paper addresses the consideration of users who would wish to retain control over their personal information while using advanced governmental electronic services. Additionally, it proposes a simple, yet effective, architecture which promotes the employment of privacy policies and preferences in modern e-government environments. The aim is to simplify the provision of electronic services while preserving users' personal data and information privacy.
