Bits of Freedom launched My Data Done Right today. A website that gives you more control over your data. From now on you can easily ask organisations what data they have about you, and ask them to correct, delete or transfer your data.
On the 25th of May 2018, new privacy rules entered into force in Europe. Based on these rules you have several rights that help you to get more control over your data. But these rights can only have an effect if people can easily exercise them. That is why we developed My Data Done Right, to make it easier for you to exercise your rights.
With My Data Done Right you can easily create an access, correction or removal request, or a request to transfer your data. You no longer have to search for the contact details in privacy statements. We have already collected this information for you on more than 1000 organisations. You also don't have to prepare the request yourself. Your request is automatically generated based on your input. You only have to send it yourself.
My Data Done Right also contains a few other useful options. You can receive a reminder about your request by email or in your calendar, so that you don't forget the request you've sent. At this moment, you can generate requests in English and Dutch. Soon there will also be an option to share your experiences with us through a short questionnaire.
Cooperation across Europe
The launch is the starting point for the further development of My Data Done Right. Together with volunteers we want to continue expanding the database with organisations. Furthermore, we want to make My Data Done Right available for all people in the European Union.
Together with other digital rights organisations and volunteers, we will work on versions of My Data Done Right for other countries across the European Union. Do you want to help? Please contactSend us an email us!
