We believe the digital world is in need of new, user centric architecture, where all of users data is more directly under each user's own control, where data is more portable and can be shared and used case by case based on terms set by each individual user as the true owner of their own data and digital transaction history.
For these reasons we see an opportunity and a need for a Global User Account service like Circle Pass, where you -the individual user are the real customer. Where the service is designed to help you to exercise your full digital rights, and where your data is less duplicated, more up to date, holistic and complete. Sharable and digitally accessible via API's under your control to provide you with more automated and higher quality digital services and service experiences that are available today. An account where you can centralize your own data, data from different services about you, along with all transactional information from those services you wish to connect with your Global User Account and where you the control your online identity use and access to your data.
Getting control of your data, does not mean that all underlying data would need to be stored in one place, in fact, the data can be stored in various ways and formats, with various levels of security and encryption to multiple different storage locations depending on data type, data usage and most importantly your preference, including cloud services by private companies, government or third sector organizations, blockchain, personal computer or server, smartphone or any combinations of these. The Circle Pass Global User Account is a service to enable managing your data and controlling the use of your data by your terms, not a central data storage.
We focus on providing and developing this service for you to manage your data, including; where and how your data is stored, what level of identity (anonymous, generic profile, limited identity, full profile, true verified identity etc.) and data about you, you want to share, with what services and in what ways (once, per request each time, real time etc.). We intentionally limit our focus to these core services to make these work well at all levels and with good user experience. Related core part of our service to you, is to enable API connection to other service providers to provide other digital services for your needs on your terms, connected with your Circle Pass Global User Account where you can control these services rights to your data.
As your service provider we also build our own service in the way we believe all services should be build, where we ask the rights and access to your data only if and when we need it, and only at level we feel is needed to provide the service in question for you. Where the service provided and the data used or new data created about you, should be clearly understood to be able to decide about granting the access.
Beyond Circle Pass, you can also give access to your data storages directly without our service in between (ie. another Global User Account provider or any other means). And if needed, stop using our service without losing any of your data or transaction history from the time having used Circle Pass account and service.
