In our world data has become the main currency and a tool of power. A search engine, social network, bank or governmental agency may know us better than our friends; sometimes even better than ourselves.
Those who collect our data operate as ‘black boxes’, beyond our scrutiny and control. Any doubts? We only hear that it is about our comfort and security. And those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear…
Not just our privacy is at stake.
Omnipresent surveillance kills social trust and increases the sense of insecurity. Decisions based on big data and algorithms reinforce stereotypes, leading to social exclusion and discrimination. We don’t have to accept this. We should demand transparency and accountability from all those who exploit our data. We can regain social control over surveillance. The Panoptykon Foundation is the only organization in Poland watching state agencies and corporations that collect massive amounts of data, and has been doing so since 2009. We carry out investigations, monitor legislative process, make legal interventions and inspire public debate. We help people regain control over their own data. Support our work!
All quotas in Polish zloty (1 zł = ca. 0.27 $).
