One alter­na­ti­ve method for giving indi­vi­du­als bet­ter con­trol over their data, who can access and for what pur­po­se, could be the use of per­so­nal data stores or ‘data vaults’. The con­cept of such a ‘per­so­nal store’ requi­res secu­ri­ty mecha­nisms that ensu­re that only tho­se enti­ties aut­ho­ri­sed by the data sub­ject can access the data and only tho­se parts for which they are aut­ho­ri­sed. Per­so­nal data stores would be most effec­ti­ve whe­re they con­cern cur­rent and con­stant­ly updated infor­ma­ti­on, such as geos­pa­ti­al data or signs of life. Bey­ond the tech­ni­cal safe­guards, data users would be obli­ged to respect the rules about data sha­ring and use. (Quel­le: Towards a new digi­tal ethics Data, digni­ty and tech­no­lo­gy)
