Web service technology is an Internet-based distributed computing paradigm to address interoperability in heterogeneous distributed systems. In this paper, we present a privacy framework for Web services which allows user agents to automatically negotiate with Web services on the amount of personal information to be disclosed on behalf of the user. In developing this framework the following key privacy considerations are taken into account: revealing only the minimal pertinent information about the user, not to overwhelm the users while declaring their privacy preferences and requiring only limited user interaction.
