About Us | YourDigitalRights.org

Our mission

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) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provide the legal infrastructure to protect people’s fundamental right of privacy online.


Privacy regulations such as the GDPR and the CCPA 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 the organizations on the list. We do not collect or trade any personal data. This service is Open Source.


Who we are

YourDigitalRights.org is a production of Conscious Digital, a non profit organization creating people centric digital initiatives which promote and advance Digital Human Rights.


Interested in joining us?

If you are concerned about the loss of privacy, rampant surveillance capitalism, micro-targeting and misinformation and the addictive nature of digital services then we’d love for you to join us!

We’re looking for volunteers including React developers, and people who can help us translate the website into additional European languages, but anyone is welcome. Please contact us at info@opt-out.eu.
