Empowering individuals to take control of their digital selves online
The HAT Community Foundation (HCF) is a non-profit organisation promoting the use of private data accounts by individuals, startups, corporations, universities and government. We aim to spawn a new generation of Internet applications that sit on private data accounts, empowering individuals with their own data.
THE HAT ECO-SYSTEM
HAT technology has a network of apps, services, and websites around it, and it is run by two support organisations: The HAT Community Foundation (HCF) and the HAT Data Exchange (HATDeX).
WHAT WE DO
Growing our HAT community to champion a new personal data economy together with our startups and partners.
By being a champion for the consumer in the digital economy, HAT Community Foundation is able to help businesses and organisations gain maximum benefit from the trusted use of personal data.
Taking regulatory responsibility for the health of the HAT platform ecosystem on behalf of HAT Owners everywhere.
Regulation of the HAT ecosystem is about certifying that business services and applications built “on the HAT” are compliant with both the technical standards and the values of the HAT trust framework.
Asserting our rights in this mutually beneficial new infrastructure, shaping its development for the benefit of all.
HAT Community Foundation works with organisations, governments and non-government organisations (NGOs) to shape the future of the digital economy and the role, rights and expectations of the individual data owners within it.
Working to develop new privacy-preserving applications that empower citizens with ownership and control over their data.
Working with organisations, founders, consultants, funders, government and NGOs, we can build a new generation of business services and applications with HAT private data accounts as user accounts
A TECH & LEGAL ADVANCEMENT
Technology to give people control over their data.
The Hub of All Things (HAT) is a technology designed to help the Internet exchange and trade personal data. HATs are ‘private data accounts’ that let anyone store their personal data for themselves, so that we don’t have to rely on governments or corporations to store it for us.
