  • A cooperative is a business that's 100% owned and democratically governed by the people who use its services, not traditional shareholders, and it distributes its profits to its user-owners in proportion to their use. These user-owners are called "members." Learn more about cooperatives.

  • The data, intellectual property, and revenue that we (consumers) stream through our internet clicks make up the capital foundations that tech companies use to derive almost all of their worth. And these foundations yield personal insights and technological advances, like “artificial intelligence,” that expose each and every one of us to risks, like those to our autonomy and livelihood, that we can't practically fathom, let alone hedge. Our market system typically allocates company profits and control, or company “equity,” to those who take significant risks to capitalize companies, or, in other words, provide them with something they need to do business. Considering these realities of consumer clicks and market norms, we have an incontrovertible “fair-market” justification to wholly (100%) profit from and control the tech companies we use as their users, and it’s high time for a tech company to make such equity available to us. So, we (User Cooperative) have made it our life’s work to get you equity for your internet clicks, and we're getting it done through a cooperative, or “user-owned,” framework. Learn more about why equity for your clicks.

  • Our members democratically govern everything we do through their powers to (1) elect our board of directors, which manages all of our business affairs, and (2) propose and vote on any specific matter of business. For example, through these powers, our members control how we collect and use data; control our algorithms; introduce or amend the terms, policies, and standards that govern use; and hire and fire key staff.
