Since the new rules the EU just approved about the protection of personal data for CFC members in the EU, an information window is popping up, informing the CFC member, that this site is using an ad delivery service provided by a firm with the nice name 'Curse' (!). It seems CFC members outside the EU don´t receive any information what really happens at CFC. As in another thread in this forum about the 'Curse banner' screenshots were demanded, I will add screenshots to this post. In the first information window you get the following information: If you here simply click on 'Got it, thanks', you will never have any glimpse what really happens at CFC by Curse LLC and more than 280 other firms, which seem to have access to the data in your pc while visiting CFC. If you click on 'Learn more', the following information window is popping up: Now comes the first big question for me: Is setting all the options in that window to 'Inaktiv' really completely eliminating all activities of Curse and the other more than 280 firms on my pc while visiting CFC? Here I have some doubts, because when clicking on 'Learn more & Set Preferences' in that information window, the following information boxes are popping up: It seems 'toggling out' is not working well for eliminating the access and storing of information on the user´s pc, as in this window (if you have ever clicked on it) there is the information, that for 'opting out' of the activities of many firms you have to visit other sites on the internet and to do further steps for (hopefully) exluding these firms from your pc. This concerns more than 80 of the more than 280 firms that have access to the user´s pc while visiting CFC (if I counted well 88 firms). Screenshots with the lists of these firms and the requirement of visiting the internet at other sites 'to opt out' will come later in this post. Another unsolved question is, what must be done, if Curse adds new firms to have access to the pc to opt them out. Must each member now watch Curse every day to see, if they have added a new firm and than again have to opt these firms manually out? Here especially the very global clause, that Curse and the other more than 280 firms can gather any information about the user´s activity on that device (showing that this permission is considered globally by using the formulation 'including web pages and mobile apps visited or used'), is triggering sorrows, as this sounds like a license for completely outspying the user´s pc (not only the browser´s data) -and this is not acceptable. By klicking in the information box shown in screenshot 2 also the following information boxes are popping up: These information boxes are showing, that these firms perform personalisation and gathering and combining of personalized datas of the user. The occurrencies around Cambridge Analytica make me very sceptical, what can happen here, if there is only one 'black sheep' among those more than 280 firms that have access to the data in the user´s pc when visiting CFC, that is not gathering datas only for the user, but about the user and is taking advantage with those informations by selling them (around several corners) to employers, banks, insurances, political groups or is using them for criminal purposes. The following screenshots show the more than 280 firms that have access to data from a user´s pc while visiting CFC: The list will be continued in the next post as no more uploads in this post are allowed.
