Your Cell Phone Records For Sale

  1. One of the few perks of living in a backwards nation like Italy is that doing as locatecell does is against the law unless you give them your written consenus. Yay. (The same law also makes unsolicited junk mail an offence, by the way.)

  2. Verizon’s privacy policy has this wide open exception:

    We may use and share information about you: (a) so we can provide our goods or services; (b) so others can provide goods or services to us, or to you on our behalf; (c) so we or our affiliates can communicate with you about goods or services related to the ones you already receive (although you can call us any time if you don’t want us to do this); (d) to protect ourselves; or (e) as required by law, legal process, or exigent circumstances.

    A and B say to me that Verizon can do whatever they want with my data as long as they, um, need to do it to conduct their business. Seems as if they are probably having someone else process call logs to do their billing, and will say they aren’t responsible for what that company is doing with those records.
