Access My Info (AMI) is a web application that helps people to create justified requests for copies of their personal information from service providers. AMI is a step-by-step wizard that results in the generation of a personalized formal letter requesting access to the information a provider stores and utilizes about a person. The letter can be saved as a PDF, printed, and mailed through the post, or where available, directly emailed to a company’s privacy officer.
We love open source software at Open Effect. We've released a browser extension, a web application for generating legally-binding requests for personal information, and look forward to continuing to release applications that empower people to exercise their rights online. Have a look at our Github account to check out our code.
TrackerSSL is a Google Chrome Extension that lets you know who is tracking you, and whether or not that tracking could be done more securely. The extension monitors all third party connections made by the websites you visit. It lets you know what percentage of third party trackers on a given page could support secure transmission of your web browsing habits, if the web page itself was only served securely through HTTPS.
