Spokeo is a site that correlates data that their bots find on the net and sell it. Doesn’t sound sinister until you discover that the data is about you! Data mining is used by many companies but this is one that offers to reveal whatever they have found for a ridiculous low price. To gather all your personal data on the net you would have to spend some time and do some searching. It would take a fair level of expertise to search all the sites and get photos you have posted, opinions you have expressed and things you had hoped might never again see the light of day. Spokeo has the expertise and the incentive to do so since they sell the data to people who are willing to invade your space to learn more about you.
Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!
