Personal Information Management System

Personal Information Management Systems (or PIMS) are systems that help give individuals more control over their personal data. PIMS allow individuals to manage their personal data in secure, local or online storage systems and share them when and with whom they choose. Providers of online services and advertisers will need to interact with the PIMS if they plan to process individuals’ data. This can enable a human centric approach to personal information and new business models.
