At the same time, working with data for all those years let me reflect on contemporary media, the Internet, security, and privacy. It is said that if you are getting a free product, you are the product. That is how the internet works. There is no hiding from it. Your data is of real value. Your data is currency. And although this knowledge is quite common, we still aren’t sure how to proceed with it.
I want to change that. Because I believe there is a way to fair data acquisition. That’s why we have created Altroo, the honest browser.
I want o to raise awareness among Altroo users of how their data is gathered, its value, how it is monetized, and to give them control over money earned from measuring their behavior.
Sounds idealistic, right? I am aware of that, especially since the current research solutions are not attractive enough to offer the user an appropriate reward for their contribution to data collection.
That’s why as Altroo, we found our own solution. We decided not to reward our users outright. Instead, we decided to support the goals that are important to you. We decided to turn the value of your data into real help.
How it’s working? While using the Altroo browser, if you consent to our collection of data and thus online behavioral research, we will pay 80% of the amount obtained in this way to a charity goal you chose. If you do not agree to share your data, nothing happens. You still have a convenient and fast browser.
We want to be fair. We want to work with your data in complete transparency. And we want to help others - with you and thanks to you.
At PlumResearch, the issue of privacy is always our top priority. We respect the privacy of our customers and strive to be transparent about how we use and protect our customers’ personal data.
We act as the data controller of personal data collected through the Service.
When you use the Service (by running the Application, for instance) and its functionalities (such as its support contact form), we collect the following data about you (the scope of data depends on your use of the Service):
The data we collect primarily comes from you. We process your data when you use the Service, fill in the support contact form or when you communicate with us in any way.
We use your data for the following purposes:
We retain your personal data for the term necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations, or to enforce our rights. Because of this, the storage period depends on the nature of the information and the purposes of processing. We will store the data processed on the basis of your consent until you withdraw it, unless we have another legal basis for such processing.
To provide our services related to the Service, we may transfer your data outside the European Economic Area. In this case, we will use appropriate safeguards, in compliance with applicable laws, to ensure the protection of your personal data.
We share your personal data with third parties in order to help us use it, as detailed below:
Regardless of the above, we may share your data with entities providing outsourcing services (such as IT, web hosting, legal services), as well as with entities cooperating with us for the purposes of developing and maintaining the Service.
We also inform you that we may share anonymous (non-personally identifiable) data, in an aggregated form, with our clients or partners. This means that these entities only receive data related to groups of users, and cannot identify you in particular from such data.
We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity and resilience of our data processing systems and services. These include, among others: using passwords, encryption, limiting access of our personnel to personal data, physical security measures, and data transfers encrypted using a secure connection (SSL).
You have the right to request from us access to your personal data that we process. You may ask for your information to be corrected or updated. You may also request for your personal information to be erased or its processing to be restricted, under certain conditions; as well you have a right to object to further processing.
In certain situations, you may also be entitled to the right to data portability, i.e. the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used machine-readable format, and to ask us to transmit the data to another controller.
In case your personal data is processed based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time, although the withdrawal will not affect the processing that has already taken place.
You have a right to file a complaint to your national data protection authority in the EU/EEA. You may find its contact details here: https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en.
