Could your fitness app or browsing history be sabotaging you? There are myriad ways that online companies can harvest your data and potentially use it against you. In this eye-opening presentation, Finn Lützow-Holm Myrstad argues that it shouldn’t be up to consumers to make sense of tricky terms of service. But if you do use apps, you should be aware of what you’re signing up for, as those terms may come back to haunt you.
In this summary, you will learn
- How some companies’ terms of service compromise your privacy and security, and
- Why governments rather than consumers should be responsible for regulating online privacy and security concerns.
