I am a Open Source enthousiast and believe in power to citizens by giving them access to their own data. Also security and privacy by design are principles I hold very dear. These are values that seem to be at the core of the Smart Citizen community and why I am happy to be part of this project.
So then why is the website of smartcitizen.me crawling with third party trackers and cookies?!
On the front page alone there are 22 of them tracking my data and sending it god knows where…
And why does http://smartcitizen.me/ allow for people to send data in the clear? An SSL certificate will set you back €35,- a year if you can’t install it yourself.
If you want people to take you seriously and you want to take all your citizens seriously, please take care of their data.
