What does your company do? What unique problem does it solve?

Trunomi unlocks the power of customer data using consent and data rights. Trunomi provides customer consent and data rights management technology that enables businesses to request, receive and capture customer consent for the use of personal data.

For businesses, it creates consent receipts and convert them to customer data rights, which are accessible across all data systems. It enables businesses to comply with regulations (EU GDPR) and data privacy laws and replace inefficient and costly legacy approaches.

For the customer, it provides control and transparency over how their personal data is used, which allows further personalization of services. Trunomi does not see or hold any customer data, and it implements existing applications and identity and access management protocols.
