SAN DIEGO, Calif., Sep. 4, 2014 — Pryv is excited to announce its partnership with Misfit Wearables, the most innovative wellness & health tracking company. Misfit users may now collect, unite, explore and share their data selectively and at a glance on Pryv.
Pryv enables its users to connect their Misfit data with other streams from their digital life, from Twitter, Google Glass, Facebook, Evernote, and over 120 other services, all into an insightful interface. Users can choose to host their data on servers in the location of their choice, be it in the US, Switzerland, France, or Hong-Kong, for maximum privacy and control. Advanced users can also upload pictures, notes, locations, numerical values and .csv files.
“Our close partnership with Misfit means we can offer our users completely new insights into their digital life,” says Frederic Mauch, co-founder of Pryv. “They’ll get a customized view of how their steps affect their mood, how their performance affects the number of pics they take, and discover countless other correlations between their Misfit data and their other lifestyle streams. It’s a game-changer.”

On Pryv, your data is yours, and it’s the only multi-source life-logging solution that’s HIPAA certified.”

“This is why I’ve loved the concept of Pryv from the very start…” Clement Charles, Pay for Trust. Now
5 years ago, I looked
crazy stupidnaive when I mentioned the idea, that in the future (which is now), telco’s will be selling disconnection as much as connection, access restriction as much full access.
Similarly, when I spoke at ITU last year on data privacy in World Telecom in Bangkok, I mentioned the fact that selling privacy and secured data access, I remember people being really surprised in the audience. Then, later during the event, I was happy to see fellow future-thinker (Swiss too) Gerd Leonard mentioned the exact same concept when he addressed the crowd of operators and regulators telling them “telcos are in the trust business”. You can view the full keynote here.
Logically, in the space of personal data, especially with lifelogin and quantified self data, trust is not an option, it
mustshould be a central piece of the product offering. This is way I’ve loved the concept of Pryv from the very start, in the field of QS meta platforms to aggregate your various data. Contained in the name (Pryv, as in private) , but also in their DNA (they’re Swiss, and as such love secrecy), their concept is really right and fair, proposed in a rich user interface.
Now to the business, I just discovered the business of Respect Networks, dubbed as “the leading platform for secure, verified and mutually agreed sharing of personal data”. This is just a start of new business, where people will pay for trust.

“Following this adagio Pryv is helping customers to have a healthier and happier life thanks to a better understanding of themselves. They can collect data from different sources, display them in a chronological way, cross them to develop patterns and insights to define what works better for them to fulfil their passions: if you track you can crack! Everyone is unique and what perfectly works for you doesn’t work with the same efficacy for me so if I devote a bit of time to really understand in which situations I am getting the best results when I am training, working and recovering I can define and reinforce the related positive behaviours.”

My kids are now 10 and 11. As any kids that age, they do spend significant time on their ipads, iphones, PSvita, Whatsapp, Instagram…
They do share lots of personal stuff with their friends and they never get close to consider privacy issues, customer profiling..
To them, this is “normal” communication in the best possible world. In the meantime, many companies have started collecting data on them and building a complete profile of who they are, what they say, what they like.
Is there anything wrong with this ? It sure is an arguable point depending on your ethics and principles.
My goal is to get them to understand that their data belongs to them, and what they share should be limited to whom they share it with. I told them that this data has value and they should profit from it if anyone.
So they started using Pryv to collect very personal stuff, including their journal and their favorite pics. This personal stuff is shared with only a few close friends. Surely they spend most of their online time on other highly popular services but those first steps into Pryv help them grasp the concept of casual data versus personal data.
