The data that resides in a vendors software system, irrespective of what it is or where it is, belongs to the creator.
Help us to create a not for profit organisation for the promotion of standards, guidelines, and advocacy of allowing clients of cloud software vendors to download their data at anytime for either a local backup or in a usable format.
Free Our Data is an organisation with the aim of promoting into the cloud software industry the idea of providing the ability of the end user to download or export their own data for either local backups, data manipulation, reporting or to load to another software system.
Free Our Data members fundamentally believe that the data of a client belongs to the client and there should be no artificial restrictions or barriers put in place to prevent a client from being able to access and capture their data in a useful format.
We are just starting up and looking for like-minded cloud software companies to join us and help forge a new standard in customer service and protection. Companies that join us as Foundation Members will help create the manifesto that guides us into the future.
