Consent is your right
Your personal data belongs to you. Therefore, you have the right to determine what companies can do with your data.
How your data is being used and misused
Today's world is exploding with data. Data on what we buy. Data on who we know and where we've been. Data on the most intimate aspects of our lives.
With everthing we do online, we leave a vapor trail of data behind us.
As we sign up for more and more services, each company leverages the data about us. Every one of our actions results in a data point. When these data points are combined into a data sets, an exteremely accurate profile is created and updated, as it follows you online.
This can be used to help improve the services you use, or it can be used to advertise products you may, or may not, want. It can be sold to other companies who may target you during an election, or use that information to develop new pharmaceuticals.
New laws for the digital landscape
As a response, the European Union implemented the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in May of 2018. GDPR gives people enhanced protections against unnecessary data collection, and seeks to redress the imbalance of power by clearly defining the individual as the owner of their personal data.
Specifying the terms of consent
We offer an encrypted file transfer service that enables you to send any document, picture or file to another party with specific rules reflecting the options you consent to.
When you specify certain basic terms of consent, you may not always be able to strictly enforce those terms, but you are signalling your ownership of the data. You are saying, I know my rights, this data belongs to me. And I decide how and what it can be used for.
This is just the start. Our vision is to develop a privacy hub where individuals and organisations can access, store and manage large sets of personal data in their own data rooms. Only when you can securely store and manage your data, can you truly own your personal data and effectively give your consent.
