Overview and Getting Started
iGrant.io is a data exchange platform that helps organisations to access personal data in a sustainable and human-centric manner. Using iGrant.io’s data exchange services, organisations gain access to verifiable, auditable and data regulatory compliant personal data. Every data exchange has an associated Data Agreement (DA) that records conditions for an organization to process personal data in accordance with data regulations, such as the GDPR.
The key value propositions offered by the iGrant.io platform are:
Enable organisations to break their data silos, expose their own data and gain access to high-quality personal data by providing transparency and empowering users to control data usage.
Compliance by design reducing the risk of non-compliance to data regulation when it comes to personal data usage, by linking Data Agreements to a legally endorsed Data Process Impact Assessment (DPIA) process.
End-user SDKs (e.g. Data Wallets, User preference centre) that can be embedded into existing mobile applications and portals.
This documentation lays out how any organisation can leverage the microservices developed by iGrant.io to gain access to personal data while reducing the risk of non-compliance with data protection regulations while empowering individuals to share their personal data within an auditable data governance framework. It also explains the key functional elements of iGrant.io as a MyData Operator.
