Ya, I understand about the whois lookup registar information.
they paid godaddy to automate the information to send it to them. They have a automation system. They don't have no or very little human invloved in
sending mail to domain owners.
I know it's not illegal. I am just saying it should. The way they do it is ethically wrong.
I have my own website still being worked on. I do plan to do the same but I will filter the information.
I will grab the persons cookies and other stuff legally. and also grab other information.
I then will use my own software that I make to find out what sites you been too. I will then catagory your personality. If you been to technoloy sites
I will label your e-mail address as a technology geek. Or something of that sort. So I can sell it to marketeers but yet do it in a ethical way.
It's better to do that then just to hand over logs or cookies taken from the user over to a marketeer.
I find that ethically wrong. Twitter and many other websites don't filder it. They grab your information and then sell it. It would give the
marketeer the exact time and date you been to those sites. This gives more information that is needed for that marketeer.
People that do marketing only need to know what the person likes. What is that persons personailty and what do they buy... do they buy dog food or
They don't need to know eacstly how much you paid a website or what time and day you been to that website. They also sell your ip address info.
So they can direct ads to your computer. Some website sell your IP trails.
This I personally think it s violation to privacy. You should posses information on time and location and when a person paid something and how much
that's too much information that a marketeer person needs.
This is key information for hackers and anyone that wants to do criminal activity.
All they do is pay the website for the information and boom. They can have a good understanding of how to tack the person and what the person does on
a weekly basis.
Twitter can sell any information this includes your ip address.
I know you volenteerly sign it over. I think their should be some law to protect abusive use of others information.
Twitter never even states that they keep your information private. I mean colleges they tell you or give you a notification that whenver you give
them information they make a promise statement that they keep your personal information private.
I just think how twiter and other sites take this information and sell it would infringe on my ethics. I think twitter should at least filter out my
information and give a summary. Don't just pass on logs and logs of information like how long I spend at a site and when I looked at the sites.
The marketing people just need information on my personality and what I like this gives them more information on how to target their ads to me or to
send ads that I would most likely would like to buy these products.
So my point is that I think it should be illegal on how these companies are giving the data to other marketeers. They should at least check who buys
the informaiton that they are a registered business with any of the states in the US. If they can't provide that information then they should assume
that it's a hacker rather then just giving the information to any tom and harry.
