U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang released a detailed public policy that treats data as personal property, Fast Company reports. Yang has raised concerns about how data is collected and used with little awareness or consent from consumers. "Data generated by each individual needs to be owned by them, with certain rights conveyed that will allow them to know how it's used and protect it," he said. The policy includes the right to be informed as to what data is collected and used, the right to opt out of data collection or sharing, the right to be told if a website has data on you, and the right to be forgotten.
