Time for Your Annual Privacy Checkup
This entry was posted in Internet, Law: Privacy. Bookmark the permalink.
Why do their privacy checkups involve me supplying cell phone numbers and alternate emails? Google is perhaps the biggest invader of privacy the world has ever seen, and they carry their banners stating everything we do is for the benefit of the world and internet users. Oh, and we also show some unobtrusive ads. That will follow you across every website you will visit for the next several months.
But no, let’s show a little kitten picture and do a “privacy checkup”.
I know they don’t show kitten pictures, but they use the verbal equivalent.
Google and privacy make for a monster oxymoron!
