Terms of Privacy

Anthony-Obayomi-Terms-of-Privacy-2020The privacy policies and agreements offered by big data companies are incomprehensible and comprehensive to the average Facebook or gmail user. The impermeability of these agreements plays a major role in the broad ignorance of the subject of what happens to our personal information once it is uploaded. No one would be willing to hire a lawyer to open a social media account. However, the big data companies’ policies and agreements, which include rules on privacy and anonymity that we must sign, are written, coded, and embedded in legal jargon designed by lawyers for lawyers. The Terms of Privacy series is a conceptual representation of the maze of these terms of use.
