New Google Privacy Policy?

Apparently Google has a new one, this is the part I find interesting:

Quote:
Log information

When you use our services or view content provided by Google, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:

details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
telephony log information like your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information and types of calls.
Internet protocol address.
device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Google Account.

Location information

When you use a location-enabled Google service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
Now, what do they mean by call type? What the hell is a call type?

Personally I don't really trust Google a lot, but there aren't a lot of options anymore.

Call type may mean the way the call was made, such as land line, cell, voip, etc... That's probably the lowest priority thing to be concerned about when you look at the other details they want.

thanks, I wasn't sure if that meant they recorded the call, listened to it and then filed it or some such shit. The amount of shit that they do keep is at the point where basically everything you do or say via anything Google-based, the have a copy of.

its broad language that could mean almost anything really


as for google i dont trust them either... i already thought it was weird that they wanted to tie peoples gmail login/information with their youtube accounts

then they asked for your mobile number to use as a "back up/security" feature

then they introduced google+

edit oh and silly me for forgetting to mention Android to control/monitor my mobile use

& my internet searches are logged



they're like a one stop shop for everything; an identity thief or intelligence agencies wet dream




which might explain why the us govt. hasn't brought google up on monopoly charges like they did Microsoft....

Google is already censoring certain sites from showing up in searches. Who needs SOPA.
This boys and girls is a perfect example of how power/monopoly corrupts.

Google and the British government are working together to sweep websites into Orwell’s memory hole. It is a joint effort that will soon go worldwide as the global elite continue to build and refine their censorship apparatus.

Google told The Telegraph today that national security is “the single biggest category” among the reasons cited for scrubbing pages from Google search results. Google’s Daphne Keller flew to the UK to testify before the the Leveson Inquiry and said her company had cooperated with the British government in 82 per cent of cases. PM David Cameron established the inquiry in the wake of the News International telephone hacking scandal last year.
The collaboration between Google and the British government is reminiscent of practices established under the so-called D Notice system, a modernized version of the Official Secrets Act used to censor political speech. Newspaper and periodical editors now routinely check with the government’s D Notice Committee before publishing information, a process that operates as de facto self-censorship.
The D Notice system was used in the Dr. Kelly case. Kelly was suicided after he accused the British government of planting in a dossier a questionable claim that WMDs could be released from Iraq within 45 minutes.
Earlier in the week, a former Soros Open Society minion and Stanford University scholar called on Google to act as a thought crime enforcer by providing warnings about websites that contain “conspiracy theories” such as the belief, held by a majority of Americans, that global warming is not primarily man-made.
As Paul Joseph Watson noted on Tuesday, the call by Evgeny Morozov to render the internet politically correct according to the dictates of the global elite and their bureaucrats is similar to an argument made by Obama’s science czar, Cass Sunstein, to force websites to carry warnings if they post content deemed inappropriate by the government.
In keeping with its mission to surveil and track and trace its users – allegedly for commercial purposes – Google has announced that it will follow the activities of users across nearly all of its ubiquitous sites, including YouTube, Gmail and its leading search engine, according to the Washington Post. Consumers won’t be able to opt out of the changes, which take effect March 1.
A D V E R T I S E M E N T

Popular social networking site Facebook also tracks and traces users and keeps the data. In September, hacker and writer Nik Cubrilovic posted information on his blog revealing that Facebook keeps track of every website users visit, even when they are logged out of the site.
The latest Google revelations arrive as the Department of Homeland Security presents a white paper on its “evolving mission” to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
“Crafted by the Aspen Institute Homeland Security Group, co-chaired by former DHS chief Michael Chertoff and composed of a who’s who of national security figures, the report outlines a total mission creep, as the title ‘Homeland Security and Intelligence: Next Steps in Evolving the Mission‘ implies,” writes Aaron Dykes for Infowars.com.
The paper proposes a transition from focusing on traditional terrorism to intelligence gathering and surveillance of supposed domestic threats. “Achieving this new aim includes co-opting local law enforcement and other regional agencies,” Dykes notes.
Obama’s DHS wants to build “a new analytic foundation that emphasizes data” and related systems that will integrate all aspects of law enforcement, including those on the local level. The DHS proposal, in other words, continues and accelerates the federalization of state and local law enforcement, a process that picked up steam during the Clinton administration in the 1990s.
The modern Stasi surveillance state and a government mandated and corporately enforced Ministry of Truth naturally go hand-in-hand as the globalists move to complete their totalitarian overlay designed to control humanity.
Increasingly, it can be argued that the internet and an array of ubiquitous technological devices were specifically designed and manufactured to facilitate the control mandates of the surveillance state.
Google’s high-tech D-notice technology – delisting and outright censoring websites deemed offensive by our rulers – is a less obtrusive version of the Great Firewall of China, a sprawling network of filters designed to craft information to the overriding prerogatives of an authoritarian and totalitarian state.

why does every get bent outta shape over privacy laws?

sure, the censorship is fuckin bullshit, it defeats the purpose of the internet (fast, wide-spread communication)

but i could care less about them taking my data information.

here's a little story:

federal police heard i was a drug dealer with a weed grow op because some tool started accusations.
supposedly he liked a girl who was hunging out with me, so he told her: "i didn't know drug dealers were your type"

those fuckers even went as far as go warn my dad. man, was he pissed.

i don't know how long i was under surveillance/investigation for, but in the end, they found absolutely nothing, apologized to my family, and got off my back.

since day 1 of the accusations, not a single fuck was given about them following me and shit. why?
BECAUSE I WAS DOING NOTHING WRONG AT ALL.

them chumps wasted months of their lives watching me work, eat, drink, fuck, sleep LOL

maybe Eric Schmidt should have thought about heeding his own words when he and other ceos collectively made a "gentlemans agreement" by not hiring other companies employees even if those employees sought employment with them

That is one of the stupidest, most ignorant quotes I have ever read. Just because we don't want other people to know about all of our actions doesnt mean they are ILLEGAL!

I know MSN search used to have filters and censorship back in the day, it's kind of sad that we're starting to head in the direction where old, printed books will contain more relevant information simply because they aren't censored (yet).

When they told me I needed a google account to keep using my youtube account, I said fuck my youtube account. Then I made a new one cause I actually wanted to post something and I'm too cheap for Vimeo

Then they told me they want my cell number to upload videos over 15 mins I'm guessing they just want to know which cell numbers to hack into.

I don't really want people to know about my furious masturbation habits, but it's not illegal. I think I should be allowed a tiny bit of privacy.
