Data collection and privacy

A post the other day about the big tech companies being given access to government level data about us set me thinking about how much I share, deliberately or carelessly. Mozilla’s ‘Privacy Not Included’ project makes for interesting reading. Happy to share the details of your sex life? Keep driving that Nissan or Kia.

  • Nissan earned its second-to-last spot for collecting some of the creepiest categories of data we have ever seen. It’s worth reading the review in full, but you should know it includes your “sexual activity.” Not to be out done, Kia also mentions they can collect information about your “sex life” in their privacy policy. Oh, and six car companies say they can collect your “genetic information” or “genetic characteristics.” Yes, reading car privacy policies is a scary endeavor.
