More often lately I have been carefully reading the terms and conditions and privacy policies of companies to which I subscribe. I am concerned about with whom my data is shared and under what conditions. While I hold my vendors to high standards, have I let our company’s standards slip?
With great confidence I can say, “No, I have not,” but can you?
After shopping for nearly a year, I recently bought an HTC phone — the unlocked version, which enables me to control which apps are installed and what they share. Though Google is by no means setting the standard for privacy, I feel Google is reluctant to share my information with others and so those are the only third-party apps allowed — no Facebook, no Twitter, no games, no sharing of any kind.
Some of these answers have the air of intent, while others present you as the victim, but in both cases, it’s time to update your policies and this can present a wonderful, welcomed opportunity for dialog with your subscribers.
Thank you for being our customer.
Your Grateful Vendor
No, I’ve never actually seen a policy like this, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase their wearables or buy their phone.
