SSIX Consent Manager

The project consortium is aware of the data usage and data privacy issues associated with the projects operations. The consortium has established a Data and Business Ethics Board to supervise the activities of the consortium and address any issue. You can find more information in the SSIX privacy page

The project uses public messages from microblogging platforms like Twitter to create an aggregated sentiment metric. Messages are received from the official platform APIs using a search for specific keywords such as $AAPL for Apple Inc’s cashtag.
There are no methods that allow every user to give the project their consent for using their public data. To resolve this concern we provide a blind opt-out of data usage via the SSIX Consent Manager. You can find more information and the consent manager applications at
