We believe applications should be designed so that:
User data is always kept private for the owner and confidential for the intended recipients.
User data is not managed or controlled by a single entity.
Many people use privacy and confidentiality interchangeably, yet the two words and anonymity mean significantly different things. The differences matter when it comes to data ownership, rights, responsibilities, and protections.
Anonymity – is ensuring that an individual described is not known and cannot be identified.
Privacy – is the individual or an entity’s right to keep personal data to themselves and not have their actions recorded or monitored.
Confidentiality – refers to controlling access to protected information that is shared between parties by consent.
The Lightstreams Smart Vault is a product developed by Lightstreams that can be used in any application for managing access to protected information that is shared within a private group of users.
Data flow is not managed or controlled by an intermediary.
