LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2011) - Individual consumers are now being offered a chance to take control of their confidential information with today's launch of OwnYourInfo (www.ownyourinfo.com). You can now organize personal information, documents, and records into a personal profile in a secure database, then instantly give others the permission to view it. OwnYourInfo makes routine personal activities like visiting a doctor, applying for a loan, or sharing your resume, much faster, more efficient, and more secure.
"People today share personal information on paper forms, emails, etc., without much individual control, and few, if any, options," said Mark L. Black, founder of OwnYourInfo. "After the information leaves your sight, you have no idea who sees it or where it goes. Our vision is to take the first step in moving consumers towards a model where they have more management and control over this personal data."
The service, as easy to use as email, is designed specifically for storing and sharing confidential information, documents, and records that you frequently need during the course of your life. With OwnYourInfo, you organize your data into different categories, upload documents and records, and have access to them from anywhere via the internet or smartphone. You share your information with specific audiences, with specific permissions, by granting them access to your database via secure link. Your information never leaves OwnYourInfo's database.
OwnYourInfo tracks all activity against your profile as you maintain it or link others to it. The service keeps an on-going journal of what you have shared, with whom, and when, in addition to your maintenance of the information (adds, edits, deletes).
"OwnYourInfo was created out of necessity. I've always been frustrated with the idea of trying to recall critical information off the top of my head. The simplicity of having all of life's most important documents in one secure location, accessible from anywhere in the world, just makes sense. Whether you're a mother, an executive, retiree, a 30-something professional -- OwnYourInfo works for everyone," Mark said.
OwnYourInfo's mission is simple -- To transform access to personal information and the way people share it.
OwnYourInfo is an online and mobile portal for storing, sharing, and tracking personal information and documents from the many facets of life where personal information is required. OwnYourInfo was founded in 2009 on the premise that people should be able to securely and efficiently store and control their personal information and documents, which is increasingly important as the world continues to move online. Users can instantly share this information and documents with others and set individual accessibility parameters for every person shared with, which can be adjusted at any time.
