    Your Personal Information Is Worth Money

    When you give information to a company, that information is worth money. Whether it is an application for a credit card or a cell phone application, the information can (and often is) resold to others for a profit. You may be surprised at how much it is really worth. For example, a lot of the personal finance writers list their net worth and assets. Their asset information is worth $6.95. Basic information you'd supply for many applications can add up to over $100. SWIPE is an organization that you should request the value of the information you give to others as they will likely resell it and make a profit from it.

    <blockquote>This calculator allows you to determine what your data bits are worth on the open market so you can request proper compensation when it is asked from you. For instance, a typical cellular phone company will ask for your address, date of birth, phone number, Social Security number and driver's license to open a new account. Consult our data calculator and that will be $13.75 please!

    Refer to this calculator when you interact with all businesses and government agencies. Make sure you get a cut of the profits from the reselling of your information.</blockquote>
