YourDigitalRights.org was created because we believe that privacy is a basic human right, and that exercising this right should be easy. The European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the Brazilian Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais (LGPD) provide the legal infrastructure to protect people’s fundamental right of privacy online.
Privacy regulations such as the GDPR, the CCPA and the LGPD are a step in the right direction, but exercising your rights under these legislations is still hard enough for most people not to bother with it. The situation is made worse because many organizations make it hard to file data requests (for example by not publishing any corporate email addresses on their website). The purpose of this service is to make the rights granted by these legislations accessible to everyone.
This is a free service. We are not a business and do not have a business model. We do not offer any services to organizations. We do not collect or trade any personal data. This service is Open Source.
YourDigitalRights.org is a production of Conscious Digital, a registered charity creating people centred digital initiatives which promote and advance Digital Human Rights.
This project is self funded by its creators, and with the help of your donations.
