FTC To Host Workshop on Cross-Device Tracking Nov. 16
It seems like not a day goes by that marketers and our government doesn't make life more dangerous for the American citizen! Our daily lives are adversely impacted by the "freedom" that marketing types are allowed, all the while placing more and more risk on the individual. WHY DON'T YOU JUST SERVE US UP ON A PLATTER??? With maybe a little BBQ sauce to tantalize these AH's?? These organizations can put a positive "spin" on their intentions, but the truth is all they want is a "legal wink" that it's OK for them to continue with their hands in my pocket! They are PREDITORS that must be gotten under control! First, government has taken away MY RIGHTS to control my personal information, made it necessary for me to OPT OUT of every unscrupulous sales/marketing/contract terms/product usage agreements, etc. (as opposed to OPTING IN!!!!!), then products (smartphones & other electronic devices) that now track my every move, product that I select, personal interests, etc. -- and report to some "unknown BIG BROTHER" whom I have NO CHANNEL OF RECOURSE, thus there IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY, NO ONE TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE for safekeeping and protection of this sensitive information……All the while we are told to be vigilant to protect our personal identity from thieves!!!!!!!!!! Well, the thieves are clearly among us!!!! And the US Government and FTC have given them a license to freely operate at our/my expense!! . Our elected officials are clearly so attached to the dollar that big business and banks spend to buy legislation which gives them the legal freedom to poach on the population and the day is coming when this is going to get extremely ugly if the direction, focus (and mentality) of government officials having authority over such matters doesn't change SOON! WHERE THE HELL ARE MY RIGHTS???? And why aren't they the PRIORITY????????????????????
