Should companies have to pay you to use your personal data? – RetailWire | The CYDigital Blog |
Mr. Yang argues that the personal data of individuals should be owned by them and not a corporation. He lays out a list of seven rights he believes should be codified into law. These include the right to:

Be informed as to what data is collected and how it will be used;
Opt out of data collection or sharing;
Be told if a website has data on an individual and what that is;
Be forgotten and to have all data deleted upon request;
Be informed if ownership of personal data changes hands;
Be informed of data breaches in a timely manner;
Download all data in a standardized format that can be ported to another platform.
