Our motivation.

Current situation in the Digital World:

  • Mobile Apps request access to a wealth of personal data
  • Terms of Service (ToS) documents are hard to read or understand (our consent is often uninformed)
  • This practice hurts the market in the long run, especially small companies since users lose their trust on digital products
