Declaring personal data bankruptcy and the cost of privacy | Digital Citizen

Declaring personal data bankruptcy and the cost of privacy | Digital Citizen | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
We’re a society in conflict. On one hand there’s outrage over government surveillance programs and wholesale data breaches. 28% of the online population claims to use tools to disguise their identity or location. 61% of Americans say personal rights and freedoms command higher priority than anti-terror measures. On the other hand, so many trade their identities away for a pittance, or even for nothing – valuing them, wrongly, at zero.

Why are they so ready to surrender their privacy to commercial interests? Especially when their trust is betrayed so regularly due to security lapses, with such damning publicity for retailers, banks, and more usual suspects?

A lot of us voluntarily declare personal data bankruptcy. It’s a big mistake.

What’s personal data bankruptcy? It’s when you declare your personal profile worthless. You want to know how often I go to the movies? What features I like in a new car? What magazines I read?


Anyone curious is going to use all that data to make money – so pay me.

Protecting Students with Google Apps for Education | Privacy

Protecting Students with Google Apps for Education | Privacy | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Posted by Bram Bout, Director, Google for Education 

Today more than 30 million students, teachers and administrators globally rely on Google Apps for Education. Earning and keeping their trust drives our business forward. We know that trust is earned through protecting their privacy and providing the best security measures.

This is why, from day one, we turned off ads by default in Apps for Education services. Last year, we removed ads from Google Search for signed-in K-12 users altogether. So, if you’re a student logging in to your Apps for Education account at school or at home, when you navigate to Google.com, you will not see ads.
