Defining a privacy respectful business model for digital engagement

Fostering Trust

Only a conscious commitment to empower customers can halt the current downward spiral of trust in digital engagement.

Backed by a commitment to build a product or service development culture that respects privacy built on security.

Advocating Privacy

Digital privacy is needed for a free digital society

Privacy will not become ubiquitous until it becomes a commercial asset

The first freedom should be from location tracking. No other data gives such deep insight to who you are

Innovating Co-location

Unlocking location value for citizens & places, whilst sustaining location privacy, is achieved through the insight that it’s the co-location of people that is important, not their location

Smart Cities

The strategic challenge is to maximise the revenue opportunity for the local economy 

Fostering digital engagement in places keeps the data value local and maximises return on investment to the city.
