As Pete Cashmore, CEO of Mashable has already announced in 2009, “Privacy is dead, and social media holds the smoking gun.” Not least because in recent times, our lives have become even more virtual than they used to be prior to the Covid19 Pandemic.
But living in constant fear that one’s data may be corrupted does not have to be the status quo. In 2018, the EU implemented the so-called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which provides a strong legal backing for handing back the control over the data to the individual citizen. Unfortunately, large tech companies have adapted and overcome the problem by simply flooding the users with cookie-banners and ever-increasing amounts of data privacy statements which one must agree prior to using their services.
Still, our rights to gain insights and control what type of data those companies can store, and use remains intact. Unfortunately, we often must rely on hidden download options and engage in long-winding debate with customer service representatives to achieve these goals. To overcome this challenge and give people back the control of their data, we have created the GDP-Raider.
A single platform for issuing, tracking, and maintaining communication about GDPR concerns with a wide range of companies. And the best, we have already built in the options to generate request templates and threaten with legal action. Now that you have all the tools you need, it is time to claim back your rights!
