FTC report examines #databrokers | Consumer Information | #PersonalData #Privacy | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
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.

#Privacy Tools: Opting Out from #DataBrokers | #datasets | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
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.)

A White House report will investigate how #BigData affect everyday #privacy | #NSA | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
A new Presidential report will investigate how data collection and analysis affect everyday privacy.

Via C.I.L. CONSULTING
luiy's insight:

A presidential working group is to examine how large-scale data collection and analysis by the private and public sectors for purposes outside of intelligence or law enforcement are affecting privacy. The goal is to identify areas in which new policies might be needed to restrain the technology and business of “big data” (a term that the White House post acknowledges is somewhat nebulous by linking to this MIT Technology Review post).

 

Snowden’s leaks didn’t say much directly about the creeping influence of such techniques in everyday life. But they certainly caused many people and businesses to be more aware of privacy issues of all kinds. It seems that similar thinking led President Obama to ask for this review, which he first mentioned publicly in last week’s speech about NSA surveillance (see “Obama Promises Reform of Phone Data Collection Program”).

#BigData : pourquoi nos métadonnées sont-elles plus personnelles que nos empreintes digitales? I #privacy #emotions

#BigData : pourquoi nos métadonnées sont-elles plus personnelles que nos empreintes digitales? I #privacy #emotions | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it

A l’occasion du colloque "la politique des données personnelles : Big Data ou contrôle individuel " organisé par l’Institut des systèmes complexes et l’Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon qui se tenait le 21 novembre dernier, Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye (@yvesalexandre) était venu présenter ses travaux, et à travers lui, ceux du MediaLab sur ce sujet (Cf. "D'autres outils et règles pour mieux contrôler les données" ). Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye est doctorant au MIT. Il travaille au laboratoire de dynamique humaine du Media Lab, aux côtés de Sandy Pentland, dont nous avons plusieurs fois fait part des travaux.

Nos données de déplacements sont encore plus personnelles que nos empreintes digitales

Faire correspondre des empreintes digitales n’est pas si simple, rappelle Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye. Dans Les preuves de l’identité, Edmond Locard, le fondateur de la police scientifique, explique qu’il suffit d’utiliser 12 points de références pour être sur et certain d’identifier les empreintes digitales d'un individu.

Le BFI (Big Five Inventory), cet inventaire des cinq grands facteurs de personnalité est un test psychologique mis au point par les psychologues John, Donahue et Kentle en 1991 (voir Wikipédia), qui depuis une centaine de questions permet de décrire 5 grands types de caractères auxquels sont corrélés des caractéristiques comme la performance au travail ou la capacité à prendre des décisions d'achats. Pour chacun de ceux qui passe le test, le modèle distingue 5 grandes caractéristiques psychologiques comme l’ouverture à l’expérience (c’est-à-dire l’appréciation de l'art, de l'émotion, de l'aventure, des idées peu communes, la curiosité et l’imagination), la conscienciosité (c’est-à-dire l’autodiscipline, le respect des obligations, l’organisation plutôt que la spontanéité), l’extraversion (l’énergie, la tendance à chercher la stimulation et la compagnie des autres), l’agréabilité (une tendance à être compatissant et coopératif plutôt que soupçonneux et antagonique envers les autres) et enfin le névrosisme ou neuroticisme (c’est-à-dire le contraire de la stabilité émotionnelle, à savoir la tendance à éprouver facilement des émotions désagréables comme la colère, l'inquiétude, la dépression ou la vulnérabilité). Pour les psychologues qui utilisent ces tests depuis longtemps, nos réponses permettent d’évaluer notre profil psychologique selon ces critères qui permettent à leur tour d’induire un grand nombre de caractéristiques comme la performance au travail ou la capacité à prendre des décisions d’achats…

From Data Ownership to #Data Usage: Personal Data Marketplaces | #PersonalData #myData

From Data Ownership to #Data Usage: Personal Data Marketplaces | #PersonalData #myData | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
In a world where more data is created than ever before, data ownership is gaining in importance. What are the possibilities for organisations and consumers?

Via Vanrijmenam, Fàtima Galan
luiy's insight:

Personal Data Marketplaces

 

This is just the beginning. There are also Big Data startups that are developing personal data marketplaces. These young companies are taking a different approach regarding Big Data and are empowering consumers to determine what’s done with their data and receive monetary rewards for the usage of their data.

 

One of such companies is Handshake. They are working hard to cut out the data brokers such as Experian or Acxiom and give consumers the power over their personal data. End-users are giving monetary rewards in exchange for their data and a bit of their time. Users can share the usual personal information as well as more detailed personal information about their hobbies and life. The more data is shared and the more time spent with Handshake, the more money consumers can make. According to Duncan White, CEO of Handshake, an individual can make up to $ 24.000 per year through the platform.  Of course this requires substantial time and dedication to the platform, but it is an interesting business model.

 

Another new startup is Ctrlio. This company is developing a platform for individuals to become more in control of their own data, decide what to do with the data and save money too via personalized offers. The advantage for brands is that they can make very relevant offers based on rich personal profiles, resulting in higher conversion rates.

A third Big Data startup targeting personal data is Datacoup. Currently they are running a beta where they offer users $8 a month in return for their data

Combien valez-vous sur les réseaux sociaux ?  | #Privacy #DataAwareness #databrokers | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
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.

Via Pascale Mousset
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".

Don’t fear the Internet of things | #data #privacy | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
The IoT devices ballyhooed at CES are trivial compared to what we will soon see coming out of the silicon foundries.
luiy's insight:

What troubles people about the Internet of Things (or IoT, it’s called) is not the nagging and monitoring the devices generate, but control over the data collected. Computer data is used against you in ways you never anticipated. A piece in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal gives a current example: Lending companies now scrape Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites to establish individuals’ creditworthiness and identity, something few users thought about when posting pictures and narratives about themselves. As IoT devices roll out, they’ll become new self-surveillance devices like our phones and email, creating “records” that if not properly secured will be scraped by Big Business. Business isn’t the only potential heavy in the IoT future. Under the records provision of the Patriot Act, the U.S. government already collects our telephone and email metadata....

 

___________

 

The IoT revolution provides a mental pause that we should use to rethink what we want from the Internet. If we expect privacy and security from the IoT, surely we should expect the same from the regular Internet, which means renegotiating our email, storage, and navigation accounts to put a premium on privacy and security. Privacy and security can’t be free. In real life and on the Internet, you get what you pay for.

 

As for Ubik‘s Joe Chip, did he ever escape his apartment? Yes. Luckily, a visitor arrived and dropped a coin in the slot on the other side of the smartdoor.

The diaspora* Project | #socialmedia #opendata #privacy | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

Decentralization

Instead of everyone’s data being contained on huge central servers owned by a large organization, local servers (“pods”) can be set up anywhere in the world. You choose which pod to register with - perhaps your local pod - and seamlessly connect with the diaspora* community worldwide.

 

Freedom

You can be whoever you want to be in diaspora*. Unlike some networks, you don’t have to use your real identity. You can interact with whomever you choose in whatever way you want. The only limit is your imagination. diaspora* is also Free Software, giving you liberty to use it as you wish.

 

Privacy

In diaspora* you own your data. You do not sign over any rights to a corporation or other interest who could use it. With diaspora*, your friends, your habits, and your content is your business ... not ours! In addition, you choose who sees what you share, using Aspects.
