When you agree to the terms and conditions of internet applications you agree to the use of data for marketing and improvement of such applications.
You don’t agree to share intimate and personal details about yourself or your life that could be used to put your life or the life of someone else in danger.
You don’t agree to expose your Social security number, you don’t agree to expose your Telephone number, you don’t agree to expose your Date of birth or Identity number, you don’t agree to expose your banking details and you don’t agree to expose your address or location.
All of the latter which can be used criminally to steal money out of your account, defraud your passport, Identity, social security. It can also be used by pedaphiles who could rape you or your kids, or stalk you or just hurt and kill you or anyone you know.
Don’t tell me that people give up their privacy when they use Google. FYI, this is not about Google this is about a flawed and egotistic assumption that owners of online platforms have when they reach a certain income bracket that they mistakenly belief that they have rights that override consumers rights.
None of the terms and conditions states or request that a consumers personal and intimate details that put thei safety and security at risk will be exposed.
The data that could be shared are limited in terms of marketing data and data which can be used to improve apps.
Marketing data include Consumer usage of a product/ platform/search engine, buying habits, market behaviour patterns, etc. These are not personal and intimate details that can be used criminally but general data.
FYI profiles and case dockets of these business owners and their activities can also be built and used legally or illegally exposed or used criminally like a double edge sword.
There are legal boundaries and consumer rights protected by laws. Just as easily as fly by nights have become billionares, so too can they become paupers in a blink of an eye!
To be found guilty of a crime the crime has to be proven to either be intentionable or negligent. Stealing people’s data beyond the marketing data they have allowed for lays the grounds for building a criminal case docket.
There are so many criminals who have machines which can copy driver’s licenses, bank cards, social security cards, passports and Identity Cards. I’ve seen some of these machines and products.
There is a smart way of conducting business operations and there is a dumb way of conducting business operations. The latter is closely linked to over confidence and egotism that leads to negative consequences.
Again this is not about Google. Google is only one of many businesses who follow the same route.
It’s time these business owners take responsibility for their part in the things like Mass murders and other society problems that they have encouraged or made allowances for that would not have happened otherwise.
Personally the only people who I loath for their business practices are Bill Gates, Opera Winfrey, Jeffrey Epstein and Facebook’s Zuckerberg.
I’ve only recently become aware of Google’s dishonest business practices and not yet sure if it’s the owners and investors intention or because of bad management. Some of the owners close networks also have their concerns which indicates that something has happened that caused a change in business practices. Maybe he got some bad business advice or something.
I also think that the South African government might have received monies from Bill Gates or ties to him for involvement in shady deals. Hence he could not involve police for fear of exposure. If he had been involved then many other political figures around the globe must also have been involved.
Picknpay has also negatively changed its business practices since the owner stepped down and lost alot of their consumers to other retailers as a result.
Oprah once made public statements about how rich she is and will always be, but her wealth has since dwindled significantly.
Zuckerberg stays in and out of court battles.
But the issue that I’m currently studying is Internet Service providers that throttle services that consumers pay for and sometime steal their credits or data assuming that consumers won’t notice increment amounts disappearing from their accounts.
I said ego is a weakness but no one wanted to believe me.
You can be wealthy and successful all your life if your core values and business practices is aligned with the values and welfare of your market and environment.
The minute you turn shrewed or shady is equivalent to you preparing your own coffin.
It’s because consumers lose their lives and savings because of businesses that odopt bad business practices and whether or not you believe in God or some other entity something greater than you is in control and it is not your ego.
