About us

What is AMI?

Access My Info (AMI) is a web application that enables citizens to request access to their personal information with their telecommunication companies or internet service providers (ISP). It guides the user via a step-by-step wizard and generates a letter that can be sent to the telecommunication company or ISP.

Who are we?

The AMI project is a collaboration between Dr. Lokman Tsui from Chinese University of Hong Kong, In-media, Keyboard Frontline, Open Effect, and the Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy (University of Toronto).

Our Mission

Our mission is twofold: 1) to raise public awareness on the importance of personal data protection and 2) to gain insight into how personal data is collected, processed and shared in Hong Kong. We do this by enabling the public to request access to their personal data with the major telecommunication companies and internet service providers.

Funding Acknowledgement

Funding for AMI software development comes in part from the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), and their Community Investment Program. In addition, Dr. Lokman Tsui received a small grant from the C-Centre at the School of Journalism and Communication, Chinese University of Hong Kong to conduct this research project in Hong Kong.

Access My Info is a joint initiative created by members of

Chinese University of Hong Kong InMedia Keyboard Frontline The Citizen Lab

About this project

Access My Info (AMI) is a web application that enables you to find out what a variety of different companies know about you. It guides you via a step-by-step wizard to generate a formal letter that requests access to your personal information. This letter can then be sent via postal mail or email to the respective company’s privacy officer.

This service does not collect any of the personal information you provide. This information is used only to generate a letter, which is done entirely in your web browser. Other web pages linked to from this service will be governed by different policies. When you load the service, the web server that hosts the service logs a record of that event. These logs include the IP address used to access each resource required for the service, the date & time of access, and several other non-identifying metadata fields.
