Was not sure if this should be here or in Off-topic and couldn’t find anything on this project in the forums. During the past few months I have regained interest in developing my app idea on the MaidSafe platform, 3 weeks ago resigning from my full time general manager position at a business college and working part time so as to devote more time to clarifying my app project, more on this in the coming weeks. Some posts in this thread from last year give a very rough picture.
During research on personal data schemas I came across MyDex and from initial reading it seemed like an amazing project with significant scope. As I delved further into it I became sceptical. This particular sentence in the T&Cs caught my attention.
“we shall not disclose any Data to a third party in any circumstances except with your specific prior written consent or where we do so under any statutory requirement, in which case we shall use reasonable endeavours to advise you in advance of such disclosure and in any event immediately thereafter unless we are obliged by law not to do so”
Without explaining the technical details of their data security and encryption I will just mention they have much information talking about privacy and security and your PDS (Personal Data Store) only being able to be accessed by you. But the above clause/sentence made me think that if they are obligated to disclose Data under statutory requirement or law without your knowledge or consent does that mean they have some backdoors built in to allow this access to Data?
I read that as “we will protect and secure your data, unless security and/or intelligence services want it”
This project may have been discussed on here previously but I couldn’t find anything through search…
