Google's new privacy policy

On one hand, at least they're telling us what they are wanting and planning to do. On the other hand, it simply feels intrusive to me. Aside from using Google as my search engine of preference since 2002, and managing a couple of Youtube accounts and a Gmail account which I so rarely use (I cannot even remember my logon password), I use nothing else from Google and I don't recall being asked for all the information they say they are going to be collecting from here on out.

At this point, I'm feeling fortunate that I've not bought into their myriad free offerings over the last ten years. It appears it was all designed (at this point) to get to this point. I have to watch (and x-click ... off) their ads on every tube video I attempt to watch, so I already pay for their service in that respect.

They can have and log my IP address, but it icks me out that they're going to try to follow me around on the 'net and see how they can better service/anticipate my internet needs in the future. Looks like I need to break out an internet mil-spec condom to use against them.

What do you think about these people and their altruistic helpfulness?


If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

I mistrust them, but not nearly so much as the unknown (to us mere mortals) government agencies that have access to their databases.

I detest the fact that companies like this, track what I do.

I ran an adware removal thingy yesterday, and there were 364 tracking cookies on my laptop, which I had no idea about.

When you use google to search for things, the standard setting is to use your history and warp the results. I always use a different browser now, logged out of all sites, to do searches.

It's like a nanny state, online. angry7

I agree. I find it offensive to track my activities online. Is it okay to stake out everyone's house and follow them to work? No, than it's not fair to monitor me online.

I have an idea for a new company. I'm going to hire people to follow you around all day. They will take notes on where you go, who you talk to, what you eat, what you buy, what type of porn you like, etc. They will report back to me every day, and we'll keep a big file on you. Then, I'm going to figure out what you want or need next, and show up at your door to sell it to you. Who wants in?!?!

I use and love gmail! but i find it incredibly creepy that their system reads my emails and caters ads based on content from correspondences I have with people in my life. I send my mom an email asking if I should buy the turkey this year and ads for butterballs and perdue pop up in the side bar. Its creepy but its life. I take solace in the fact that their databases are heavily encrypted and butterball already paid for that ad space prior to reading my email its just that after they read my email google was like hey this one of our prepaid ads works here. Same with my search history. but at this point data mining is a huge unstoppable and unfortunately not illegal business model.

JANE...I take your word that you work for the government. In your opinion, would a letter writing campaign, etc. to our congressional people do any good? I realize we don't have the "money" to perhaps get their attention with...but ^&%^$%$ we got votes.

I hate being monitored. Use spyware removal software and remove cookies regularly.

Google tracks us to sell the information for profit.

Google SUCKS!

I'm not in that branch but my guess is no, google is completely within their rights as a private and, although they see unavoidable, optional service provider.

Sopa could suck for the internet period. Googles new privacy policy is dubious at best. Although data mining is nothing new, just now they wont ask they will just do.

True that does suck but they have been mining your data w/out asking for a while now too. from what I can tell they are simply broadening the type of data they can collect.

I was going back a few years to when hotmail was still a great email service (once they dropped the ball on push email they went down hill) you would be mined for data with questionaires which you could voluntarily skip. And i can believe all types of government agencies keep a track on what you are searching. Heck googles been doing it for years with their most searched auto fill function

True but technically the government needs a warrant to monitor your past current or future internet activity. they don't need to tell you they are doing it but they need a warrant to do it in the first place and companies like google are happy to comply when asked to provide records. (ok not happy, they pretty much have to LOL)

Do not be Miss Informed, Jane.

Shortly after 9/11...the US government alphabet agencies approached and leaned on (hard) the 6 major internet backbone providers. Three of those caved, pretty much - immediately.

AT&T being the prime mover. Sprint and WorldCom followed suite within days. Their internet routers were ALL plugged into and given free access. I wish I could find the articles I used to have (on an old, since failed hard drive)...but if you search enough, you'll find mention of this.

They've been snooping our email, text ...anything digitally generated and sent/received...ever since late September 2001.

Facebook was funded primarily with CIA monies. If you're on Facebook with your real name and information - you're fucking yourself. Have a bunny - bunny

The only thing we can really count on is that the CIA, Mossad, NSA, FBI, Interpol & whatever the Russians & Chinese are using now ...are all still hiding shit from each other.

But we've been being watched, recorded and collected for over ten years, with extreme prejudice.

evil4 , DARPA invented the damned internet. This is their baby's bathwater. We're all just wading through it.

I am getting to the point that I hate seeing your forum posts, not because they are untrue. Rather because the truth is at times so painful to see.

Your right about cell phone stuff (like your location and call history) but in order to pull more sensitive information, like the fact that you recenty searched how to make a pipe bomb along with "what times is times square most crowded" the government needs more than just your name.

as for the CIA, they play by their own rules your right about people fucking themselves on facebook LOL. Here is a news special on the CIA's involvement with the "facebook program" LOL:
