” Who Really Owns Your Data Once Mined “

"Tracking Your Every Move"

“Tracking Your Every Move”

#AceSecurityNews says with all the recent news about Prism and as this video by “Info-Wars” confirms the data we though we once owned, our personal private data has now become the most prized possession ever!  Once called the “Word of God” prior to the fall of Adam and his mate ,then to be corrupted by man for generations, from lies to absolute corruption of our very lives! As with the advent of theWorldwide Web we could shared everything, and spread our corruption to the very corners of the globe, eventually becoming like “God’s Knowing Good and Evil” – though we were only at the “Beginning of the End” there was still a lot more to come.

Though little was known about how such a simple and harmless act of sharing would one day lead ,to the advent of “Social Media” and this was the next step of the downfall of mankind. As everyone never saw it coming but was sucked into the web of sharing not knowing or even caring where their data ended up.

"How We track Your Every Move"

“How We track Your Every Move”

Seeing an “Eye to a Main Chance” or an eventual way to make money, it was then “Social Media” hit our lives and everyone was led down the path of having a “Facebook Page” and sharing their very lives, from their most intimate secrets to their likes and dislikes. We were told the data could be protected just by adding the word private in our settings, our emails would not be shared with anyone and all our photographs were still ours. Others saw the benefit of Sharing but it was not the “Social Media” companies that were sharing anything ,it was us. Oh yes the

Judas Iscariot

Facebook, Twitter and Google media site’s were indeed classed as “Free” but the meaning of “Free” was being distorted and altered. As upgrade, by upgrade until we were all sucked into the world of ” Thinking We Were Protected” but all the time “Data Mining Companies” such as “Prism and Palantir” waited in the wings, like a devil on horseback ready to ride in and claim our data as their “Right” all under the new name of “Protecting Our National Interest” and these companies with their massive mainframes bulging with all that data, we so easily shared ,archived and saved in our “Now” – Not So Personal Settings were being “Mined” for every tiny morsel of information about Who, we were and What we do and How we do it, passing these titbits for a few ” Silver Coins” like “Judas Iscariotselling-out “Jesus”for 30 pieces of silver, to the Romans for his eventually crucifixion.

Though this time it was not his crucifixion we had to witness but it would eventually be ours ,our want to have everything, to pay for everything through companies such as PayPal who would sell us out to the highest bidder or better still to watch the CIA provide the “Venture Capital” to fund these “Data Mining Companies” now with the latest reason being renamed ” National Security” and so an agency was formed called the #NSA to collate and log all our data and strip it clean. This agency would become able to use our “Data” to find our everything ,from our shopping habits, to our preferences at the next election. Of course “Social Media” companies had allowed this to happen as their pay off their 30 pieces of silver would be they could increase their coffers, with ad revenue and increased ad revenue would mean more sales ,meaning more income and more income would mean bigger and bigger sites, able to mine more information.

No longer was our “Private Data” as the companies paid had given it away to “Security Companies” and had sold their “Souls To The Devil” all in the name of “Looking After Number One” and increasing their revenue by selling us out to the highest bidder.

NSA Studying Social Media Connections Using Social Graphing

The social graphing began in 2010 after the NSA lifted restrictions on the practice, according to an internal January 2011 memorandum, the Times reported online Saturday. It based its article on documents obtained by former NSA contractor Edward J. Snowden and interviews with officials.

The graphing, or contact chaining, is conducted using details about phone calls and e-mails, known as “metadata,” but does not involve the communications’ content, according to the documents cited by the Times. It is supposed to be done for foreign intelligence purposes only, the documents state, but that category is extremely broad and may include everything from data about terrorism and drug smuggling to foreign diplomats and economic talks.

The revelation is the latest in a string of disclosures that began in June, when The Washington Post and the British newspaper the Guardian broke stories, based on Snowden’s documents about the NSA’s PRISM program, which collects digital communications from U.S. Internet companies, and about the collection of call-detail records from U.S. phone companies.

Edward Snowden Applies for Russian Asylum

In a letter to Ecuador seen by Reuters, Snowden said the United States was illegally persecuting him for revealing its electronic surveillance program, PRISM, but made it clear he did not intend to be muzzled.

“I remain free and able to publish information that serves the public interest,” he said in an undated letter in Spanish sent to Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/01/us-usa-security-snowden-putin-idUSBRE9600QP20130701

Giant US government Internet spying scandal revealed!

The Washington Post and The Guardian have revealed a US government mass Internet surveillance program code-named “PRISM”. They report that the NSA and the FBI have been tapping directly into the servers of nine US service providers, including Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Apple, Yahoo, YouTube, AOL and Skype, and began this surveillance program at least seven years ago. (Imageclarifying slides)

 

These revelations are shaking up an international debate.

 

Start Page has always been very outspoken when it comes to protecting people’s privacy and civil liberties. So it won’t surprise you that we are a strong opponent of overreaching, unaccountable spy programs like PRISM. In the past, even government surveillance programs that were begun with good intentions have become tools for abuse, for example tracking civil rights and anti-war protesters.

 

Programs like PRISM undermine our Privacy, disrupt faith in governments, and are a danger to the free Internet.

 

StartPage and its sister search engine Ixquick have in their 14-year history never provided a single byte of user data to the US government, or any other government or agency. Not under PRISM, nor under any other program in the US, nor under any program anywhere in the world. We are not like Yahoo, Facebook, Google, Apple, Skype, or the other US companies who got caught up in the web of PRISM surveillance.

 

Here’s how we are different:

 

  • StartPage does not store any user data. We make this perfectly clear to everyone, including any governmental agencies. We do not record the IP addresses of our users and we don’t use tracking cookies, so there is literally no data about you on our servers to access. Since we don’t even know who our customers are, we can’t share anything with Big Brother. In fact, we’ve never gotten even a single request from a governmental authority to supply user data in the fourteen years we’ve been in business.

  • StartPage uses encryption (HTTPS) by default. Encryption prevents snooping. Your searches are encrypted, so others can’t “tap” the Internet connection to snoop what you’re searching for. This combination of not storing data together with using strong encryption for the connections is key in protecting your Privacy.

  • Our company is based in The Netherlands, Europe. US jurisdiction does not apply to us, at least not directly. Any request or demand from ANY government (including the US) to deliver user data, will be thoroughly checked by our lawyers, and we will not comply unless the law which actually applies to us would undeniably require it from us. And even in that hypothetical situation, we refer to our first point; we don’t even have any user data to give. We will never cooperate with voluntary spying programs like PRISM.

  • StartPage cannot be forced to start spying. Given the strong protection of the Right to Privacy in Europe , European governments cannot just start forcing service providers like us to implement a blanket spying program on their users. And if that ever changed, we would fight this to the end.

 

Privacy.

 

It’s not just our policy – it’s our business.
