Zoom can be used to train AI

Looks like the new Zoom terms and conditions now allow training AI on user content with no opt out. 🤣 See section 10.2

I am not too sure what data is shared, or how it is used, but big tech is clearly incapable of playing fairly, we have companies using all uploaded data to train AI, for example photos, text, code anything and usually the consent is given via terms and conditions so end users are so tied in to closed systems, the users auto consent weather they like it or not.

The fact that zoom is used by organisation such as child protection agencies also for me RAISES SERIOUS CONCERNS.

Please consider using an alternative that actually protects and respects privacy such as Big Blue Button

Meta (Facebook and Instagram) prohibited from using personal data for advertisement.

This is a really important development in that it shows that the GDPR and the Law are to be followed. Massive win for our personal data protection. People are waking up and finally taking back control and see what big tech is really doing.

Please note that as of 18/11/2022, the Twitter situation is very fast moving. People are moving to Mastodon in large numbers, so by the time this is published, who knows what the situation will be.

Facebook and personal data, the farce carries on.

Not a week goes by without Facebook or rather its parent company Meta Being in the news. A recent article, raises yet more questions about what happens to our personal data once Facebook / Meta get hold of it.

The GDPR is very clear as to how data can be used, the fact Facebook appear unable to control what goes on, shows they are not fit for purpose. Companies or individuals that use Facebook could end up complicit in any data misuse.

The problem probably arises as YOU sign up to Facebook and therefore consent to them using your data, photos etc.

This is why CHOICE is important. I don't have a problem with education establishments using Facebook for student communication, I just won't use it. I do object to people assuming I use Facebook.

Microsoft accounts and GDPR

The UK / EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) state that in the Information commissioners office website [1] upon request of data removal, data should be deleted within “An organisation has one calendar month “. [2] So why is it that upon recently deleting an old hotmail e-mail. it takes 60 days as per quote from their website.

To protect your account from accidentally being closed, we may ask you to prove your identity and intent. For example, if you forgot your account info and had to reset your security info, you must wait 60 days before closing your account. 


You can reopen this account, preventing the closure, by signing back in within 60 days. To reopen, you'll need to prove your identity using your current account security information.

This account becomes unrecoverable 60 days after you've closed the account, meaning that you'll be unable to reopen it.

Quote from website regarding time for data deletion.

One of the rather pathetic excuses seems to be that you may request this in error. To me this is just patronising. People are not stupid, big or small tech is not above the law, even though they seem to think that most of the time. Just delete the data within 30 days.

If I request my account is deleted from the Fediverse it gets deleted. Same goes for Gitlab repositories.

Another reason to avoid big tech. If you need e-mail, pads, collaborative editing and storage, then Disroot [3] is excellent as a service too.
