Be smart. Do like others. Care about your personal data

People are taking back control of their own personal data. They’re making a smart choice. Because your personal data is lying around. Here. There. Everywhere.

You might be okay with companies having your personal information. You might trust them with your purchase history, family photos and private conversations. You might think, “I have to nothing to hide.”

But today, people know that ensuring your own personal data isn’t only about privacy. It’s about security.

When you give away your personal data, you give away control. Your personal information in the wrong hands can become dangerous. It can be used as a weapon against you. If you care about controlling your own life, you should care about controlling your own data.

For years, we’ve all been giving our personal data away and not been able to take it back. WeAreDavid is changing that.

Be smart. Care about your personal data. Download the app and see what personal data companies have on you. Begin taking back control.

Four simple steps. Here’s how it works

  • 1) Download the WeAreDavid app in the Apple App Store or Google Play - it’s easy, secure and free of charge.

  • 2) Open the app and select which companies you want to screen for your personal data.

How the regulation works for you

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) of 25 May 2018 gives you the right to full transparency on who is storing your personal data, what the data is used for and whether the data is shared with third parties.

The WeAreDavid app enables you to enforce your rights.

Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling: You have the right to human intervention. This means that you can say to a company, if they have processed your data (insurance, credit evaluation, job application), that you want a human to evaluate your data.

When your personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.

Under the GDPR, your right to be erased is not limited to processing that causes unwarranted and substantial damage or distress.

You should know that companies can legally refuse to comply with a request to be erased if the personal data is processed for the following reasons:
