After lots of time and effort, you got yourself a face to face meeting with a very reliable and known wine buyer.
She already tasted your wines and went over all the details of marketing your wines, and the target of this meeting is to sign a long-range contract.
You very happily buy a flight ticket and count the days before this important expansion for your business.
When you bought the ticket online and received your confirmation, Google already transmitted the data to every client they have that pays them money for that information.
Now imagine a competitor of yours getting this data. He knows your business and what you offer. He also knows that you would probably meet with one or several wine buyers there if you fly to a certain airport.
It is not that surprising then that when you get there, the wine buyer already has another “wonderful” offer and, most probably, you have lost the deal.
“With power comes the abuse of power. And where there are bosses, there are crazy bosses. It’s nothing new.”
The Google giant has (last time I checked) 52% of all the email and data traffic observed, recorded, and most important, sold to anyone who cares to buy it. It is your life, business, well. Being, habits, and actions that vacuum off your data transmissions.
Google not only makes billions of dollars out of this but continues more and more to increase the spying, selling, and intruding into your private life, and now their managers and staff are starting to curb free speech too.
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
Start fighting for your freedom. It is easier than you think.
The first easy step is to change your email application. There are many other than Google. These apps offer free email services and still do not “milk” your privacy! They are easy to locate, so change to a new email and get your emails less public.
“‘Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.”
The year 2020 is the best example of the above quote, and we should all be very aware of the liberties we are losing each day!
