Strategies for Success: Making Your Brand Successful

What’s Global Privacy Control?

The internet should be safe to use by default, this is something that I strongly believe, and a big part of ensuring the safety of internet users is trust. For someone like me, who works in tech, navigating cookie/privacy permission notices, rotating passwords and the general safety procedures that come with surfing the web is, at most, an annoyance. For those outside of tech, though, it’s unrealistic to expect them to stay on top of all these things and using the internet becomes increasingly unsafe for them because many services breach users trust by using users’ data without their consent. The internet should be safe for the most vulnerable internet users without them having to jump through so many hoops. There is a lot of work to be done to getting to an online utopia where all users are cared for, but we’re starting the work. Privacy and data protection is the big ticket item at the moment, a number of governments and ruling bodies have already put together groups of laws that protect user’s online data (GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, etc) and these rules have led to an uptick of privacy permission notices, some which use dark-patterns to trick users to give permission to have their data sold. For you and me, these notices are jarring, especially considering they’re on every site and require us to make sure the correct boxes are ticked. But, what if I told you there was another way?
