Data Collaboration Manifesto

The Data Collaboration Alliance is committed to advancing control as the foundation of meaningful Data Ownership and the key to unlocking global Collaborative Intelligence.


Universal Control

The ability to view and change data must always be controlled by the data owner. Any changes to data access must take effect immediately.


Universal Ownership

All data must be owned by a single citizen or corporation at all times. Subject to mutual consent, data owners can designate the management of their data to third parties (custodians) but owners retain accountability at all times.


Universal Access

The only reason why a collaborator should not be able to view, edit, or operationalize any dataset is the absence of permission from data owners.
