About Technology Independence Group

It’s about privacy & independence.

We are a coalition of technology experts united around tech independence and finding the right tools that support your privacy.

The rapid rise, growth, and market dominance of Big Tech providers is largely a by-product of their business models.

Models that exploit and monetize your consumer data for market control. It is a conflict of interest for your company to safeguard consumer information and, retail it too.

  • Example 2. Amazon violates Child Privacy Laws: Concerns over Big Tech’s data practices have been mounting for years, particularly regarding Amazon’s handling of voice recordings from Alexa-enabled devices. Despite its privacy policy, research suggests that Amazon collects and sells voice recordings to third parties for targeted advertising, often at higher rates than other data types. Moreover, recent charges by the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission highlight Amazon’s alleged violations of child privacy laws, raising further questions about data protection and user privacy. FTC and DOJ Charge Amazon with Violating Children’s Privacy Law.

Why rethink the way you invest in tech?

It’s about breaking the monopoly. Taking back control.

Why rethink the way you invest in tech?

It’s about breaking the monopoly. Taking back control.

The technology market is arguably one of the most important drivers of business and economic activity in our time. It underpins the majority of our productive and leisurely activities.

As our dependence continues to grow, the technology market continues to consolidate, offering fewer options and centralizing market control.

Without competitive, viable market options, organizations and individual consumers will have no other choice than to go along with the biased and changing terms and conditions and corresponding principles of Big Tech providers.
