The Data Economy can be profitable for consumers if they can grasp the opportunities that are offered and if they get a fair share of the benefits produced. Consumers have to take a central place and role in this modern economy of big data. Today, as part of an internal seminar, Altroconsumo, DecoProteste, Ocu, Proteste and Test-Achats have, together with business leaders and high-level authorities including the Belgian Minister for Telecommunications and the Digital Economy, reflected on the role that consumers can and should play. This is an opportunity for these consumer organizations to call for the support of a manifesto and statement on www.mydataismine.com. The aim of this declaration is to ensure that the personal data and privacy of consumers are respected and to give them the opportunity to play a key role in this new economy. This Declaration will also be submitted to players in the digital economy.
