Privacy is a complex social process that will persist in one form or another as a fundamental feature
of software engineering. For successful privacy aware engineering, it is critical to guarantee the
alignment and compliance among privacy artifacts emerging during software development process.
In this paper, we propose a privacy compliance engineering flow in which we investigate the
involved necessary privacy artifacts and discuss their alignment, refinement, and compliance
verification. Within an exemplary case study, we identify the privacy artifacts introduced in the
refinement process and analyze their compliance verification.
