Simple Opt Out makes it easier to opt out of data sharing by companies.
Unroll.me – is an interesting service that helps automate unsubscribing from mailing lists, but what caught my eye is their approach to describing data practices with a service that is clearly beneficial but comes at the cost of providing access to an individual’s or organization’s most sensitive data. Unroll.me’s How we use data page specifically addresses the following topics that every organization should strive to transparently share:
How we keep your data safe
What kind of data we collect
How we use your data
Who we share information with
Our commitment to transparency
