    RIP USA US Congress has voted to allow the selling of consumer browsing history

    https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...g-history-data

    US politicians voted Tuesday to kill privacy rules meant to prevent internet service providers (ISPs) from selling users’ web browsing histories and app usage histories to advertisers.

    The planned protections, proposed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and scheduled to take effect by the end of 2017, would have forced ISPs to get people’s consent before hawking their data.

    Republicans in the House of Representatives followed their colleagues in the Senate with a vote – of 231 to 189 – to approve a resolution that uses the Congressional Review Act to prevent the privacy rules from taking effect.

    Kinda failed at the tagging, but thing is, you tick a box whether third parties are allowed to receive access to your information when you sign a contract with an ISP. If you ticked no, then you have nothing to worry about. Even if they do sell your information, you will have no problems, all it means is that companies will tailor their product ads or information accordingly to your interests. Facebook, YouTube, Spotify Twitter etc already tailor their advertisements around your browsing history.
    The only people who'd be offended about this would be paedophiles or people who are into obscure crap like gore or extreme fetish porn.

    Explain to me exactly how your information being sold affects your life? It has literally no negative effects and it allows companies to make profit. Win win situation unless you're a criminal, drug dealer / user or a sick fuck
