What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Mappd – managing and protecting personal data. It is an acronym that expresses our ethos and perfectly describes our core values. We are committed to protecting your privacy rights and to do so, we are currently developing a web application that will allow you to easily exercise your rights as a 'data subject' and provide you with a central location to manage your personal data.  You can take back control of what is rightfully yours.

Our inspiration

You may have heard the term; "data has become the new oil" and this term has been circulating around media outlets because huge companies, economic powerhouses and even small to medium enterprises, can treat your personal data as a commodity - a commodity to be shared or sold in order to incorporate manipulative marketing techniques.

A picture of your past, present and future can be painted entirely from your digital footprint and your personal information acts as a catalyst to drive sales further influencing you to consume more - this should be the decision of the individual.

The current Data Protection laws have provided people some sort of control over their personal information although they have not been adequate enough fulfill our fundamental rights. Organisations still have the opportunity to make it extremely difficult in obtaining and deleting our own personal data, however, all is not so doom and gloom.

The upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will grant people the opportunity to evade this kind of Orwellian nightmare and Mappd plans to be at the forefront of this movement. The application currently under development by Mappd, will provide its users a convenient way to locate and identify where their personal data is, acquire knowledge of how it is being used and know if it is even necessary for a company to hold it. 

With Mappd's sophisticated management platform, you can easily locate, obtain and reduce your personal data alongside many other features and empower you to make decisions that relate to your own data.

Who we are

The founders; Harrison Mussell, Jamie Rodriguez

Coming from an IT Security background, data privacy has always been a subject dear to our hearts - ensuring that people are treated fairly by organisations is key to ensuring that both businesses and people get the most out of their relationship.

Throughout this time in the industry, there have been huge changes in relation to cyber crime, data breaches and organisations carrying out poor practice as they begin to manage huge amounts of data.

Unfortunately as a consumer, we often have to sign our information away and put it into the hands of an organisation who in many cases, does not look after the information properly, increasing your risk of having your identity stolen, information published or used for malicious activities, including fraud.

Jamie and I spent some time thinking about how to make the best out of a bad situation, and with incoming laws that give more power back to the people, we believe it is the right time to further develop and launch Mappd.

About the tool

Mappd is a data management tool which has been created to give the power to manage data back to the individual, rather than being subject to the organisations rules and processes.

It is a legal requirement within the European Union and the UK that organisations must provide copies of your personal data should you request it and soon with new EU / UK data protection laws the abilities and control that the individual has, will be increased further.

Unfortunately, to date these processes have been very much lead by organisations which has resulted in clunky, paper based solutions that are not easy to use.

Features

Mappd is a tool that automates the processes and provides you with a centralized location for all of your needs relating to personal data whether that be;

- managing marketing preferences

- Viewing the location of your data across a world map

- Consolidating your data footprint

- Raising subject access requests

- Deleting data that a company holds relating to you

There are many uses for the tool and many features that we will be adding during this funding cycle to ensure that there is one tool to manage them all.

Imagine a time where you don't have to change your address with all of your companies when you move house - we can acheive this.

Current Features

Currently we have built the following features;

- Ability to confirm where your data is held

- Ability to request copies of specific information that is held

- Ability to remove data that is held

Aims of Kickstarter funding

Following the completion of the kickstarter fund we will be able to complete and deliver the below additional features and core requirements;

£10,000 - Additional features for managing marketing preferences, viewing where your data is on a world map and an intuitive dashboard to provide an overview

£20,000 - complete user experience and journeys fine tuned and built, Systems architecture designed and built for release with security embedded throughout; storage system designed and built for storage your responses, data etc.

£30,000 - Complete the final build and release; penetration testing carried out throughout the system; dual factor authentication for accessing your account; Storage and architecture hosted within UK data center with compliance certificates and solid security.

£30,000 + - We have a comprehensive list of additional features that will be added with any funds received after this amount and will update this page as we progress, key additional features include;

- Mobile app to input data and e-register through mobiles and wearable tech (imagine not having to provide your information verbally but instead like a contactless payment)

- Integration with organisations systems to allow for instant, controlled access to your information and how it is used

- Utilization of online token based authentication mechanisms to reduce the need for typing in information across websites - this will also automatically update your portal to allow you to manage the company

- Increase coverage to outside of the EU

Thank you

As a team we are devoted to revolutionize the way that personal data is managed and used and really believe that now is the right time to begin making those changes - data is valuable and is sensitive to us, so lets start making organisations treat it that way and allow us to have control of what is ours.

Risks and challenges

As this is a first of it's kind tool, there is a risk that organisations are not forthcoming with information and are not accepting of the app;

To counter this we have the following mitigation in place;
- with our strong industry contacts throughout multiple industries we are able to provide influence to progress the app
- It is law that organisations must respond to an individuals request and as of May 2018, this must be free of charge
- With enough users to cover the Kickstarter campaign, we can cause the required amount of disruption to overhaul existing processes.
