Web services among of the applications involving closely the customer's private information. In order to take into ac- count the privacy concerns of the individuals, organizations (e.g Web services) provide privacy policies as promises de- scribing how they will handle personal data of the individ- ual. However, privacy policies do not convince potential in- dividuals to disclose their personal data, do not guarantee the protection of personal information, and do not provide how to handle a possible evolution of the policies. In this paper, we introduce a framework based on an agreement as a solution to these problems. It contains a privacy model defined in the policy level of the agreement. The framework supports in the negotiation level of the agreement a lifecy- cle management which is an important deal of a dynamic environment that characterizes Web services. A negotiation protocol is proposed that enable ongoing privacy negotia- tion to be translated into a new privacy agreement.

Privacy poli- cies are merely promises and a promise as such sometimes has not legal grounds on which the service provider does not keep its promise. There is a need for something more trustworthy, more formal and more legal than promises -a privacy agreement-. Moreover, in the dynamic Web ser- vice environment,policiesmight need to accommodatenew business strategies, changes (evolution) to laws and regula- tions, emerging competitors, and so on. A lifecycle man- agement framework of privacy agreement is needed. It shows how to take into consideration the dynamic privacy policy evolution and how to make a consistent update in the privacy agreement induced from the events occurring in the environment, while there are active processes in the service based on the privacy policy being changed. In this paper we propose a framework for the privacy in the Web services. The privacy policy model is defined as an agreement and supports lifecycle management which is an important deal of a dynamic environment that character- izes Web services based on the state machine, taking into account the flow of the data use in the agreement. In this setting, the features of the framework are:
