Is the Internet Safe
Defining safe sometimes is about defining expectation. Surfing the Internet has lots of traps and pitfalls the unwary can get loured in.
For the most part in a B2B environment, we know who we are visiting and we know who we are dealing with. When our contemporises or trading partners suggest sign up and get involved, it is reasonable to expect that is what is happening is you are communicating directly with them no one else.
Outside of the B2B world you instantly become wary and note when a page link has sent you to a different site, even though it may seem legitimate. The reason to be wary is more often or not is logically something else is going on. There was a time when a simple check on the about, terms or privacy links you got to the right answers.
GDPR makes it safe? well no it makes it murky and legitimises what most of us would conclude to be nefarious actions with the phrases such as we are not ‘responsible for our partners’ stuck down somewhere deep in the many layers of gobbledegook. What they should have said is we facilitate partner links that do the data mining and tracking for us.
As if to contradict our selves with links, go to https://disconnect.me, download the app and install it as part of your browser. If nothing else it will help improve your perception of the type of the people you are dealing with and start you on the trail of wanting to know more.
