I know, you’ve probably never read them. Unfortunately, it’s very normal for most of the people to check the acceptance of the Terms and Conditions every time they register on a site simply because they’re forced to do so in order to access. In this article, I would like to tell you why you should be more cautious the next time you accept them.
First of all, what are the Terms and Conditions?
What rights do we commonly give when we accept the Terms and Conditions?
A company committed to the information of its users will manage it and use it for purposes that do not imply its compromise. Normally, an Internet service that is paid has a lower chance of using your information for bad purposes and this is because they may not need to profit with it to keep the service alive.
However, if we go the other side, many services on the Internet that are free like your mail service, search engines, and social networks have a hidden cost even if you do not believe it. Your information could be being analyzed in order to show you ads based on your interests, to have a greater conviction power when approaching to you when trying to sell you something and why not, to spy you in a certain way.
