Tracking Footsteps

The advent of Advanced digital tech has brought mankind extreme levels of comfort and convenience in everyday life.

Inter-connected ‘smart' systems, communication channels and enhanced connectivity have enabled us to be more productive and efficient.

 

The exchange for such productivity comes with a price - with the constant flow of personal data from all channels.
