About Cozy Cloud

Curious about the people behind Cozy Cloud, about our history, business model, and vision? You're in the right place! Let's start with the most important and the most exciting part.

Our vision

Cozy is the first digital home on the market. It gives users an intelligent, decentralized and secure storage space that allows them to retrieve information via its connectors (photos, bank statements, operator invoices, e-merchants, etc.). This private and customizable environment is accessible from any device. In addition to storage, users have access to easy-to-use applications to automatically manage and organize their data. Cozy Cloud mission is part of the vision of an ethical digital.

While the major platforms collect more and more personal data, a Cozy is a solution allowing the individual to take control: free software, self-hosting and protecting his data. The European economy needs a new paradigm to thrive. A platform like Cozy offers 'pre-digital' companies a new field of expression, beyond the reach of GAFA, for relevant interactions. This re-invents the customer relationship in the era of the RGPD with innovative and privacy-friendly services.


Our team

We are a team of people who are passionate about software development and who firmly believe in personal privacy and freedom. We also believe in empowering users by providing them free and open source tools that can help them to improve their daily lives and remain independent from commercial service providers. We are a flat organization of equal peers, with executives and a board of members advising us on the business aspects of running the company.

GDPR logo GDPR: the real game changer is Data Portability

Data portability gives you the right to ask a service not only to restore your data in formats exploitable by algorithms but also to transfer data directly from one actor to another. Suddenly, doing so, you create the conditions of a virtuous digital ecosystem through a competition, alternatives, a mobility that is not possible when the data is locked in your bank, Google, Facebook, or Uber.

All of a sudden we give back the power to the user to create the conditions of a market that is aligned with his interests.
