Personal Data

The problem

Data has become a commodity in the digital economy, however data owners have no control or ownership of their personal data. The generation of personal data is growing exponentially, driving the demand for data ownership and self-sovereignty.

The solution

Simplicity

Controlling and owning your data should not be complex. Simplicity needs to be the foundation of data management and control.

Awareness

We need to start understanding and valuing our data; awareness is key in driving the global transition towards self-sovereignty and data ownership.

Trust

Transparency regarding the usage and management of data, is key to instilling trust between participants in our data driven society.

YOUR DIGITAL THUMB PRINT

You should be in control

You should be able to retain ownership and control of your data, while continuing to participate in the digital economy.

You should be informed

You should know exactly who has your data, their reputation related to data protection and what they are doing with your data specifically, at all times.
