We pool your anonymous shopping history with others to reveal trends about how consumers shop. Brands pay for those trends.

With the proceeds, we make an annual donation on your behalf equal to 1% of your Amazon spend for the year. 

Your data is kept 100% anonymous and secure

Your personal information (like name and address) is automatically removed from your shopping data. This means you won't receive any additional advertisements, spam, or messages.

Any personal information you provide is encrypted using industry-wide best practices, and this data is never shared with any brands or retailers.

Our Mission

We're proud to be a Public Benefit Corporation, which means we are a hybrid between a nonprofit and a for-profit organization.

Who We Are

Data Does Good was founded on the belief that people own their data and should be entitled to the data's fair value.

We also believe that when pooled together, our data can positively affect the world.

So we developed a transparent system that allows people to donate the cash value of their data to important causes in an anonymous and secure way.

Our three promises to you are:

  • Privacy: We protect your privacy and take security seriously
  • Transparency: We never collect data without your knowledge
  • Fairness: We will always give back at least 50% of our revenue

Thanks for doing good with your data!
