Adding free API access to data portability to give users ownership of their personal data
The big tech companies (Facebook, Google, Microsoft, etc.) have found a new way to undermine GDPR and users’ rights to own and control their personal data.
In the past all tech players offered free and powerful APIs that allowed users to access their data in real time. These APIs combined with a robust authentication layer (oauth) made it possible for startups like BitsaboutMe to build convenient consumer products based on user consent to extract and use personal data, i.e. allow data portability and make users true owners of their data.

At BitsaboutMe, we firmly believe that every user of online services has a right on his personal data. Since Amazon is one of the largest players in e-commerce and thus collects quite a lot of data from us, we decided to develop a connector for Amazon data. But that’s not all: for all fashion friends among our users, we have added a connector for Zalando data.

What do personal data have in common with coffee? Nothing at first glance. But if we look behind the scenes of the production of the black elixir of life, we will find what we are looking for. At least when we look at fair trade data and fair produced coffee. Just as Fairtrade strengthens coffee producers and promotes fair trade, BitsaboutMe strengthens Internet users to benefit from the value of their personal data.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which finally came into force on 25 May 2018, is not just any law in the EU, but a reform process finally set in motion that regulates the processing of our personal data as a fundamental individual right.
