The beta version of StiftungSchweiz’s data mission statement

Data can be irrelevant or meaningful. It can be treated negligently or protected with the greatest care. It adds value but also has the potential to do serious damage, whether to the people it relates to (and whose privacy rights are violated) or those who have made it available (and whose reputation suffers). And, not least, data is associated with a value that increases as this data becomes more complete and more useful.
or whether we deliberately impose limits on ourselves.
The beta version of our data mission statement has been drawn up in stages over the past few months. Martin Steiger, an expert in law in the digital space, assisted us during this process (see Advice, p. 26). The outcome has not yet been finalised. Now, it’s your turn. Do you think the current version is ground-breaking or feeble? Where would you start?
