What is required to start earning from my data?
Beyond that, we'll have some other data connections you can establish including search and browsing, fitness and mobile data-sets. All of your data is valuable, and we want to help you own it, use it and earn from it.
Where is my data stored?
For now, Datacoup offers storage on its own servers. However, our storage roadmap will also offer decentralized storage options, such as BigchainDB, IPFS or others. Additionally, we intend to encrypt data locally on the device before it is transferred to storage. Once your data is in storage, your market preference settings will dictate how you provide access to your data.
Who is buying my data?
Entities interested in consumer patterns and trends include:
- CPG companies (Consumer Packaged Goods like toothpaste or detergent)
- Investment firms
- Insurance companies
- Advertising-Technology companies
- Market Researchers
Will data purchasers ever be able to contact me?
By default, purchasers have no way of contacting you because they don't have access to emails, addresses or any other identifying or contact information. However, if you opt-in, we'll provide the ability for you to participate in communications with some of your favorite brands and service providers so they can pass you discounts in return for sharing data.
Is this secure?
Yes. We never see or store any password or account information from the accounts you've connected.
Facebook - We use the standard Facebook Connect protocol (called Oauth).
Shopping history - When you enter your bank credentials to connect a debit or credit card, the credentials do not ever hit our servers. A token is immediately created when passing through the financial API, which validates the connection to the bank. All data is transmitted in encrypted form using SSL (Secure Socket Layer). The connection we establish is on a 'Read-Only' basis, which means we could never manipulate a transaction or account even if we tried.
Further, with blockchain-based technology, we'll be encrypting the data before it is stored. We intend to offer decentralized storage, so that no single entity has control of your data.
