THE IDEA in a nutshell

The Problem

  • Most smart devices and their applications require access to our personal data.
  • Much of the required data is given to third parties for tracking and advertising purposes.
  • The associated terms and conditions are complex legal documents that most people do not read.

The Idea in a nutshell (see more)

Create a community and a crowdsourcing platform to:

  • Help raise awareness to citizens of the privacy related consequences of digital technologies.
  • Inform about ways to protect our private data from unjustified access.
  • Put pressure to developers to comply with our privacy protection needs
