    Hello everyone,

    We are researchers with many years of experience in crowdsourcing. So far large companies have been using your data for free to improve their services, advertisements, etc., making enormous profits. We think it is time for you to get the ownership of your data and make money out of it as opposed to letting large companies use your data for free. Hence, we are in process of building a platform that would pay you for your data/online activity and we are looking for people who would take part in this.

    We will be paying anyone who is willing to sell their online activity (and you can choose what you sell, e.g. you can pick to only sell the queries you submit to Google and nothing else or only the URLs you have clicked on and nothing else). All you have to do it so install a plug-in that will only be logging the data you are happy to share. You also have the option to stop the logger whenever you want if you don't want to continue with the logging. You will also have the option to ask us to delete your data if you do not want us to use your data any more. All this will be done via professional contracts that are formed by lawyers who are experts in GDPR and data protection.

    We think it is time for people to get back the ownership of their data and we hope that this platform will be the first step into this. Above is a poll that you can fill in to let us know if you would be willing to take part in such a study. Please feel free to also contact me at if you would like to get more information.
