BEWARE of New Privacy Policies in the World Wide Web

    • BEWARE of New Privacy Policies in the World Wide Web


While searching for a car rental yesterday I came across this new privacy at Hertz Car Rental dated 5/17/2018

Like most people searching the web I usually just click on the agree box, but this time I opened it up only to find loop holes of invasion of privacy. 

I usually book my reservations online but after reading all the different items of my privacy for Hertz Car Rentals, I changed my mind. And will pay the extra $10+ dollars for not paying on the spot and giving them all these items of privacy as an American citizen.

Be very careful about online companies, online banking, searching the www and so much more. Tech companies are pulling and documenting more and more of our personal information.

Tech businesses and the world wide web continue to rob us of our privacy & personal information. It makes me not even want to do business on the Internet anymore ... Totally SCARY!!!

I am really looking forward to the day I retire which is coming in the near future. When I can toss my smart phones, buy a burner flip phone with no Internet. Live in the country with no cell phone antennas, no freeway systems, low population of people, relax on the porch and watch the moose & bears walk by (maybe) smoking a corncob pipe with a bottle of moon shine next to me along with a double barrel shotgun and pistol in hand ;o)

Well I am happy to say I went into the Hertz location where I rent my cars to complain about the privacy policy. They weren't aware of the new policy and didn't really care about what I had to say. I tried to reserve a car through them with my credit car and drivers license and the man at the front desk said NO.

He gave me a 1 (800) number which I called and complained about the (new) privacy policy and not being able to reserve a car in person at this location.

The operator was very helpful, did not know about the (new) privacy policy so he pulled it up while I was talking with him and read the part that I stated to him. He understood my concern, reserved a car for me next week, apologized and (did not) take all this information from me verses booking my reservation online ... And the conversation was RECORDED for quality insurance ;o)

With all these (new) privacy policies taking place from Hertz Car Rental to FaceBook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc, it's a wonder they don't want to know which doctor, dentist, person's we are dating at the moment, the last place we went to the toilet, what were wearing, if we brushed our teeth and the list goes on and on ;o(

I share the concerns you have about privacy and the internet.  I am hopeful lawmakers will do something constructive to help tame the "wild, wild" part of the internet.  But, I'm not holding my breath!

My husband is like you.  He reads all the fine print and will raise hell about it.  There's stuff happening now, beyond privacy policies at companies, involving software that is essentially spyware.  And anything not these programs is being phased out and everyone is being forced into this brave, new world.  It turns my stomach to think how much we have given up already.

We all have to beware of these requirements and I have to say, being in our business, we have to be 'transparent.' So, I feel like that horse has already left the barn and I'm going to have to be okay with it!

It's all so overwhelming and so frightening to me. I'm glad you stood up to them and think more of us should do the same.
