People want more privacy and better control over the data they share online. Businesses need data to create value, serve customers better, and build better products. Both are right, and it’s our job to make sure each camp gets what it wants.
Confection is a new kind of product: a data generator for the privacy-first world. It walks an important, challenging (and endlessly fascinating) cultural fault line. The debate is ferocious. We’re right in the middle. Our product is controversial. But building the new standard by which personal data is collected, stored, and distributed online was never going to be easy or frictionless.
“”[T]he best collective decisions are the product of disagreement and contest, not consensus or compromise.”” James Surowiecki wrote that in The Wisdom of Crowds. More voices and more intense debates lead to better outcomes, and those are the waters our team navigates.
Join us. Help companies thrive in privacy first. Give people greater control over what they share online. Build a better web.
