|The passing of new regulations like the European GDPR has clarified that in the future it will be necessary to build privacy-preserving systems to protect the personal data of its users. This thesis will introduce the concept of privacy templates to help software designers and architects in this matter. Privacy templates are at their core similar to design patterns and provide reusable and general architectural structures which can be used in the design of systems to improve privacy in early stages of design. In this thesis we will conceptualize a small collection of privacy templates to make it easier to design privacy-preserving software systems. Furthermore, the privacy templates will be categorized and evaluated to classify them and assess their quality across different quality dimensions.
