Google's New Privacy Policy Breaks European Data Protection Laws
worldundercontrol.com...


Google have made a bid to further erode our privacy through their new (no) privacy policy, which also breaks European Data Protection laws according to the French National Commission for Computing and Freedom (CNIL).

The CNIL found that;

“preliminary findings show that Google’s new policy fails to meet the requirements of the European Data Protection Directive (95/46/CE) regarding the information that must be provided to data subjects.”

The commision also say that;

“rather than promoting transparency, the terms of the new policy … raise fears and questions about Google’s actual practices.”

The amount of data Google is collecting is also a fear because of;

“the combination of data across services”

and they worry

“about the lawfulness and fairness of such processing.”

The new policy means that Google can share private information with it’s partners and third parties such as advertising companies.

This isn’t the first time Google has been caught violating users privacy, it was revealed last month that Google was monitoring browsers and even disabled Safari settings.

I wonder what will come of this. Probably not much. Unfortunately.

If you have a google phone, now would be the time to trade it in. Dont download google programs, such as google earth and do not use google for any searches. Their is a search engine called startpage.com It uses google but uses a filter so that your information will not be documented.

i used startpage all the time it looks like its still up and going. i think startpage was even talking about an e-mail service.

either way how can i still use google and not have them watching every thing i do?

I switched to gmx mail for my email now (use gmail for junk), I try not to log in to any google services. I do google search a lot, and i totally forgot about startpage, thx for the reminder.

It's time for some new honest players in cyber space to step up and try and change the internet control grid.


Oh yeah, I do have a smart phone.... DOH! time to go back to a dumb phone.
