What Big Tech Companies Admit to Collect About You?

Privacy has been a general concern among public all over the world. It has been intense in developed countries where ‘ways to operate and do things’ have been automated and moved to the world wide web. This is not limited to tools usage but also services i.e. banking, shopping, government services etc. Privacy concerns have been there for a while – its not a net new information. Though the intensity increases as there are main stream news about data breaches, tech companies collecting user data, and black web data sales.

This awesome yet simplified infographic posted on CoolInfographics highlights ‘types of data’ major tech companies admit to collecting in their privacy policies. (Majority of users don’t tend to read through these privacy policies and simply hit ‘accept’ but there is a lot more to it). Have a read through and see what data the big six have on you (Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft). Last but not least; this is type of data these companies admit to collect.

This infographic is a simple visualization which caters all types of users. As a good practice; we should always read through the privacy policies of any service we are utilizing. Many might argue that there is nothing called ‘privacy’ in today’s advanced era but at minimal we should be aware of what these policies say and what is being collected.
