You Are Being Misled

A variety of "wonderful" tools have been  released to help us control the tracking of our behavior. Browser addons have to be installed and used in every browser. Cookies to help? Will these get erased when you maintain your cookies? Then you can start all over again! Why is it the consumer's job to solve the data taking committed by tracking companies, ad networks and large Websites? The tools are confusing, contradictory, sometimes designed to be self-defeating.

If a thief steals your car, do you wait to see if he'll contact you with a way to work on getting it back from him? This continues the backward practice of Opt-out . . . the "Trackers" rule where YOUR DATA GOES, HOW IT'S USED FOR WHATEVER THEY WISH. Want it back? Maybe there's a method somewhere in their Privacy Policy for you to Opt-out. Maybe they'll give you an Opt-out cookie. Remember not to delete it when you clean up your other cookies.

Our Mission

We create partnerships for consumers and advertisers for enhanced opt-out AND permissioned use of your profile for targeted ads, if you choose. And if you choose to allow targeted ads, you should share in the value of your data. Our companion website, MoneyForMyData.com, will help you capture your data's economic value.

Companies Steal Your Data

Your personal data and Internet activity grow evermore valuable, obtained by tracking you and selling the results (or using these to increase the value of their ads) ... and the hundreds of tracker companies:
          ^  Don't ask your permission
          ^  Don't even inform you (doing it in secret if they can)
          ^  Don't share the revenues with you.

It's easy to prove how valuable your data is. The data mining business counts thousands of companies, producing billions in revenue. The AMA, for example, is paid tens of millions every year for helping just ONE data mining company make about $2 billion every year selling YOUR Rx data.

The World Economic Forum reports that personal information is a new economic asset class worldwide!

Privacy Policies don't work and generally contain hidden traps. The vast majority of Internet users don't read Privacy Policies, and wouldn't understand them if they did. Click  http://www.KnowPrivacy.org, for an excellent review of the problems inherent in these policies.

You own your computer - you can own your data, too. The Federal Trade Commission agrees with all of this and has suggested that somewhere there needs to be a Do Not Track Registry®, modeled after DoNotCall.gov and described in their report as a simplified method including a Do Not Track mechanism.

DoNotTrackUs.com is your solution - here is where you enroll your IP Address and mobile phone number(s) - and stand with others to demand control, to announce the level of tracking - if any - that you find fair and acceptable.

You Are Being Watched - The IRS is After Your email

The IRS Tracking (also "behavioral tracking") refers to the multitude of technologies used to follow you about while you're on the Internet. The resulting data is then used to identify you, provide others with a description of who you are and how you live your life. Data about you is then widely sold, many times over, resulting in billions of dollars in profits for over 25,000 companies who have you under surveillance. And millions of you pay money to companies who are scraping up your data and selling it. These are called "Privacy Protection Services." More information on these at MoneyForMyData.com, our companion site in collecting your data on YOUR behalf and capturing the profit in its use, then sharing this with you.

You Own Your Cell Phone 

Who you call . . . where you are. Do you really want ads to follow you? Do you want your prior travels to be stored in numerous databases? YOU own your phone. Claim it and stop the collection of your calls and your location.
Many of us are not aware that our cell phone sends a signal of our location every seven seconds, and the government is anxious to gain access to this. How can being an active member of DoNotTrackUs assist you in resisting government tracking and capture of cell phone data (including location info)?

One important position is that our members present an affirmative assertion that they do not intend to knowingly expose their cell phone's position by turning it on. They also do not voluntarily hand over cell phone numbers of personal and business contacts by using the phone. It is the position of Do Not Track Registry® that the Stored Communications Act (18 U.S.C. 2703(d) protects a 4th Amendment right to privacy in cell location data by requiring "specific and articulable facts . . . reasonable grounds . . . (and) an ongoing criminal investigation" to intrude. The Act provides a legal method to resist government requests to get such data. More information in Question 5 of our FAQs.


How Do Not Track Registry Works

Free signup will record your IP address in the Do Not Track Registry® along with other enrollment data and your personal commercial information. The Registry will be used to provide you with control over the use of your information in sending you advertising. Your email address will be used ONLY to communicate with you on this No Tracking process unless you provide express permission for other advertising uses. Enter your cell phone number(s) to add to the Do Not Track Registry to request greater privacy in your location and freedom from GPS related ads. We will not ever use your information to send (or cause others to send) you advertising without your consent. And you can participate in the revenue generated from the use of your data by joining our free companion site MoneyForMyData.com.

Decide whether you want total Opt-out of ALL TRACKING. We use the same design for protection as DoNotCall.gov, where telemarketers use the lists of over 200 million Americans and have stopped most telemarketing to those hundreds of millions of telephone numbers. 

Our Do Not Track list is offered to advertisers and companies (companies wishing to license the list will go through our application and verification process). Those who continue to track (either by not using the list or violating it) will be informed of the legal liability in violating our members' privacy and using their personal property without permission. 

The trackers are responsible for the actions and programming required on their end to block or initiate the opt-out, no tracking for each IP Address and cell phone number. The business model is the same as that used by the FTC for DoNotCall.gov.

The No Tracking list to be marketed to tracking companies is expected to be available in about six to eight months. While the technical definition of "no tracking" is under development, we expect it will target (1) personal information, (2) all unique identifiers, and (3) the creation of any consumer profile using tracked data.
