DataBuyer is a service that enable HAT owners to exchange their data with organisations for benefits or donate their data to researchers. DataTrader provides the opportunity for HAT Owners to derive direct benefits for their data, and for organisations to ask data (including Facebook, Spotify, Fitbit or other data) directly from their users.

How does it work?

HAT Microservers enable HAT owners to pull in the data they generate across various different apps and services into their own private microserver database, meaning they legally own the information inside, and can collate and cross-reference that information in ways that is meaning full and useful. Owning data in this way means HAT owners have the power to share that data with whomever they please, as much or as little data as they like, and stop when do not wish to share it.

DataBuyer is a service that provides the opportunity for anyone to ask HAT owners for their data.

What kind of data offers?

V1: Databuyers can ask for tweets, posts, financial expenses, location, any data that HAT owners have chosen to bring into their HAT, with or without personal identity identifiers. This is useful for researchers, recommenders and market insights.

V2: Databuyers can influence or buy digital action by buying future data e.g. reviews, tweets, posts, watching ads and videos. HAT owners that accept these offers will exchange the data that was generated as evidence of the digital action.

V3: Databuyers can influence or buy physical action by buying future data from physical devices e.g. purchasing actions (use public transport twice this week), consumption actions (consume less water this week) and other experiential, interaction or depletion actions evidenced by data generated through IoT devices and wearables.
