Fair Data Society is an initiative for decentralized self-sovereign data commons.

Fair Data is based on the simple premise that personal data is a part of the individual. As such, it should be treated as any other inalienable part of human identity.

As a society, we embraced high standards for treating people with dignity and respect. It is time to enforce these standards in the realms of our digital existence.

Fair Data Principles are an ethical standard for collecting, processing, and storing personal data. They are a social contract of our members and technologies we develop.
