There is currently a trend in giving access to users of on-line services to their own data. In this paper, we consider in particular the data which is generated from the interaction between a user and an organisation online: activity data as held in websites and Web applications logs. We show how we use semantic technologies including RDF integration of log data, SPARQL and lightweight ontology reasoning to aggregate, integrate and analyse activity data from a user-centric point of view.
