"We need either a Federal law or even better a Constitutional Amendment that grants every citizen absolute ownership of their personal data. No use of that data without remuneration. No use of SSN without tokenization like Apple Pay or similar. Companies should not be indemnified if they lose the data we have allowed them to use. No enitiy is entitled to our data. They have taken it because no one has stood up and stoppped them.
-Is profit allowed or are you expecting break-even?
-What about the credit bureau's, banks, and other lenders who use your personal data to evaluate you for extending credit?
-Would it be OK for you as an employer to do a background check, or for an insurer to check your driving history and accident record?
All these things require that your personal data be stored somewhere. Is signing your agreement to access it sufficient or are you still demanding to be paid in actual money?
A lot of questions are raised by what you think is a simple matter. I look forward to your comment.
There is a big difference between your personal data be stored somewhere with your knowledge, and the same data be sold, and resold, and reresold....... without your knowledge. And as far as I know, Google is not a bank, nor an insurer.......
