Consent intermediaries are an emerging approach to providing individuals better control over how their personal data is used and better tools for re-using the data from one service in other services by collecting all the required management in one place. To understand how individuals feel about consent intermediaries and how they should be developed, the authors implemented a simple UI according to the principles ofone ofthe approaches, MyData, and performed user tests (n=23), where users were asked to manage data sharing between services. Our findings show that there is a clear need for such tools and the consent intermediary approach shows promise.
