luiy's insight:

For data brokers that provide marketing products, Congress should consider legislation to:

 

- Centralized Portal. Require the creation of a centralized mechanism, such as an Internet portal, where data brokers can identify themselves, describe their information collection and use practices, and provide links to access tools and opt- outs;

 

- Access. Require data brokers to give consumers access to their data, including any sensitive data, at a reasonable level of detail;


- Opt-Outs. Require opt-out tools, that is, a way for consumers to suppress the use of their data;

 

- Inferences. Require data brokers to tell consumers that they derive certain inferences from from raw data;

 

- Data Sources. Require data brokers to disclose the names and/or categories of their data sources, to enable consumers to correct wrong information with an original source;

 

- Notice and Choice. Require consumer-facing entities – such as retailers – to provide prominent notice to consumers when they share information with data brokers, along with the ability to opt-out of such sharing; and

 

- Sensitive Data. Further protect sensitive information, including health information, by requiring retailers and other consumer-facing entities to obtain affirmative express consent from consumers before such information is collected and shared with data brokers.

DATA - Avez-vous une idée de votre valeur sur les réseaux sociaux ? À combien estimez-vous votre compte Facebook ? C'est la question qu'on peut se poser après les sommes vertigineuses engagées par les géants du Web. Le rachat du service de messagerie WhatsApp par Facebook: 16 milliards de dollars.

luiy's insight:

Avec WhatsApp, Facebook va gagner dans l'opération une grande masse de données sur les usages des consommateurs dans le monde. Des informations qui ont elles aussi de la valeur, relève IHS Technology. La forte présence de WhatsApp sur des marchés émergents clés, comme le Brésil et l'Inde, fourniront à Facebook des informations sur des pays où il n'avait pas développé de monétisation. Pour les analystes de Cantor Fitzgerald, "la valorisation semble raisonnable sur la base du prix par utilisateur".

Si mes sites web valaient ce que je vaux sur les réseaux sociaux, je ne serais plus à plaindre. En réalité, nous on bosse, eux encaissent, quoi. xDD

Data brokers don't make it easy to see the data they hold about you. Here's what you can do to opt-out.
luiy's insight:

Data brokers have been around forever, selling mailing lists to companies that send junk mail. But in today’s data-saturated economy, data brokers know more information than ever about us, with sometimes disturbing results.


The first spreadsheet below is a list of data brokers who will give you copies of your data. (You can scroll around inside the box below, and you can also download your own copy of the spreadsheet, here.) The second is the list of data brokers from whom I sought to opt-out, with the ones that allowed opt-outs highlighted. (Download that onehere.)
