what to do to improve online privacy?
- use a privacy respecting DNS server by https://www.opennic.org/
- for example: 18.104.22.168
- (not google’s (22.214.171.124))
- use Freifunk
- use a VPN such as:
- use tor bundle as much as possible https://www.torproject.org/download/
- can also be used “on top” of VPN
- bandwidth might sometimes be low/slow
Aniston “I don’t do Facebook”
… well if she knows, that WhatsApp and Instagram are also Facebook-companies?
“Could we get a photo?” Pause. “For my Facebook?”
Aniston struck me as the kind of person who had mastered the art of healthy boundaries. She is someone who is comfortable saying no. She didn’t need an out. Still, I had made it easy for her to wrap our conversation up. I had offered her an Irish exit on a tray in a giant steaming mug of coffee courtesy of Bewley’s in Dublin or, better yet, Central Perk.
“I don’t do Facebook,” she replied. By mentioning social media, I had made a fatal mistake.
She, of all people, has had enough exposure to our society’s toxic media. Facebook “friends” offering their precious thr’pence-worth on the latest development in her world is the last thing she needs in her life. Who in their right mind would open themselves up to more?
Well, 2.4 billion people around the globe, to be exact. That’s 2.4 billion people who want to stay connected, as Facebook FB, -0.11% Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg likes to say.
Or 2.4 billion people who like to present a happy, smug and frequently false version of their lives
Or 2.4 billion people who like to bounce around in their own echo chambers. Both Facebook and “Friends” offer us a sense of belonging and, for a few minutes or hours, they appear to deliver.”
“Facebook reported the suspension of tens of thousands of applications from 400 developers as part of an internal investigation initiated in March 2018 after the scandal with the Analytics company Cambridge Analytica.
Then it became known that the British company was collecting data of tens of millions of users of the social network Facebook.
Facebook has suspended the work of tens of thousands of apps amid a scandal with the collection of data” (src)
Data Privacy Statement is in German: “Datenschutzerklärung”
is it really that bad?
yes it is. checkout this screenshot from one of Facebook’s main (ex?) partners Acxiom’s https://aboutthedata.com/portal/login
“There may be some fake news on Facebook, but the power of the Facebook advertising platform to influence voters is very real.
This is the story of how the Trump campaign used data to target African Americans and young women with $150 million dollars of Facebook and Instagram advertisements in the final weeks of the election, quietly launching the most successful digital voter suppression operation in American history.”
so here it is:

“your mother works with a select group of creepy uncles data providers to help businesses connect with people who might be interested in their products or services.
We’ve designed these partnerships with people’s privacy in mind.
People using your mother’s services have control over the ads they see.
Many businesses today work with third parties like Acxiom, Oracle Data Cloud (formerly DLX), Epsilon, Experian and Quantium to help manage and understand their marketing efforts.
For example, an dictator may want to customize an offer to people who are likely to be in the market for oppression.
The dictator also might want to send offers, like discounts for service, to customers that have purchased/voted a oppression from them.
To do this, the dictator works with a creepy uncle company to identify and reach those customers with the right offer.
The creepy uncle partner provides “your mother with information that helps “your mother connect those customers with the offers.

Specifically, we offer people:
Transparency.

“your mother’s data providers have also agreed to provide an opt-out form on their web sites, which are listed below:
PI Announces U.S. Big Brother Awards winners for 2005
Privacy International held the 7th annual U.S. Big Brother Awards to shame the invaders and celebrate the champions of privacy.
The ceremony was hosted by the 2005 Computers, Freedom, and Privacy Conference, in Seattle.
The Nominees for the Worst Corporate Invader were
– Acxiom (for a tradition of data brokering)
– Accenture (for its Government projects)
– Response Unlimited (for trying to sell the list of donors to Schiavo’s parents’)
The judges selected Accenture for the award.
Citing concerned members of the House of Representatives, who raised the fact that the largest contract issued by the Department of Homeland Security was being issued to a company based in Bermuda, the judges felt that Accenture was worthy of the award.
The judges were particularly concerned with the plans for the US-VISIT programme, including the use of additional biometrics, profiling, and the development of digitial dossiers.
The Most Invasive Proposal or Project Nominees were:.
– US-VISIT (mass fingerprinting and face-scanning programme of all visitors to the U.S.)
– U.S. Passport with RFID (placing a transmitter chip in all new U.S. passports, to be read by anyone, anywhere, from a distance)
– Secure Flight (system to compare all travellers with the terrorist watchlists)
– Brittan Elementary School RFID tagging of students
– Standardised Drivers Licenses (de facto national ID scheme)
The judges selected Brittan Elementary School for the award.
Citing the principal of the school who enjoyed the idea of spying on all students’ whereabouts “because it would streamline the taking of attendance, giving teachers a few minutes more each day to teach and boost accuracy, no small matter given that California school funding is based on how many children attend class each day.”
Parents of students reacted negatively and organized campaigns against the scheme.
The Big Brother Award will be delivered personally to the principal by concerned parents.
Nomineees for the Worst Public Department were…
– The Federal Trade Commission (for repeated failures to stand up for privacy rights)
– Department of Education National Center for Education Statistics (for proposing a national database of all students)
– The Department of State (for continual use of diplomacy to promote bad policy abroad, i.e. policy laundering, such as biometric passports)
The judges selected the Department of Education’s proposed programme.
This programme would collect data on 15 million children across 6000 schools in the U.S., collecting data such as credits earned, degree plan, race and ethnicity, grants and loans received, tax status, etc. to be held by the Federal Government for at least the life of the student.
Finally, the Lifetime Menace Award was issued to Choicepoint. Choicepoint has been an abuser and broker of personal information for many years now, collecting information on Americans and foreigners without having to adhere to strict privacy laws. Recently it has admitted that there have been a number of fraudulent uses and loss of this personal information. This resulted in mass apologies, apologies to Congress, and a CEO bonus of 1.8 million dollars.
The U.S. 2005 Big Brother Awards were judged by
