Scary Bank tracking [Nov. 22nd, 2005|10:27 pm]

So I was sorting some stuff out with my bank account using online banking and clicked on a few of the adverts for other services, no big deal.

Until today, I got a phone call asking me if I wanted more details about those services, it just freaked me out a little. scary thinking they making use of all your clicks on the site to figure out what to try to sell you next and no I don't mean this to sound all tinfoil hat, just it really did jolt me. All this was a big lesson on how much information I give away everyday just going about my everyday life,

The other scary bit was they wanted lots of security details before they would tell me why they phoned me.

I'm doing much the same over here, giving a few quid each month to support No2ID and
The Open Rights Group.
