MyData Global Network

The core idea is that we, you and I,

should have an easy way to see where data about us goes,

specify who can use it, and alter these decisions over time.

MyData 101

MyData Global is an award-winning international non-profit


The purpose of MyData Global is to empower individuals by improving their right to self-determination regarding their personal data. It is based on the MyData Declaration.

MyData Global has nearly 90 organisation members and over 600 individual members from over 40 countries, on six continents. We facilitate the 2000+ strong MyData Global community working on the ethical use of personal data. As part of our ecosystem development work, we organise the MyData Conferences and in 2020 – four regional events.

MyData is both an alternative vision and guiding technical principles.

The human-centric paradigm is aimed at a fair, sustainable, and prosperous digital society, where the sharing of personal data is based on trust as well as balanced and fair relationship between individuals and organisations. 


We believe it is time to publicly assert the values that drive us – and call on those who share those values to act upon them. The essence of the MyData movement is captured in the MyData Declaration. Join us in creating the MyData movement. Read, Sign, and Promote the MyData Declaration.
