Re: Broadband speed

@shutter 

Rest your case ?? - Your case was that I was wrong and they don't sell data, you gave a silly phone book analogy which backfired on you 😂 😂 so you switched tact to say I was posting irrelevant stuff on this thread, clearly the irony is lost on you.

 

BTW ignorance is a description not an insult but somehow I knew you wouldn't know that 🤣

Re: Broadband speed

My case.... was..... and still is.....

 

Your whole argument.... either about selling or sharing information,

 

has nothing whatsoever to do with the original query posted at the top of this thread....

 

 

 

as acknowledged by your own words..

Re: Broadband speed

And the link posted in @tiredeyes last attempt to provide validation is US-centric, and does not apply to UK/European practice, as well as being 2 years out of date.

Re: Broadband speed

@jab1 

It was the first thing that came up on a web search that I thought would help the uninformed members look at how shared data works.

It still applies to the UK/EU the only difference is you get told about it in the EU.

That pop up that you get on websites that says "blah, blah, we use cookies, blah, blah, blah, accept and close" and everyone just clicks accept and close - the small print that I have posted numerous times is typical of what websites say in their T&C/Privacy policy and is common throughout the internet, they use your data to make money, this includes BT Group

 

Anything there I have said that you believe is wrong jab1 ?Huh

Re: Broadband speed

Yes, @tiredeyes - your reference to 'uniformed members' for one. I don't know how long you've been on the 'net, but I doubt it's as long as me, and I follow developments fairly closely, having worked in IT for 30+ years.

Re: Broadband speed

 

So you know that BT Group sell your data and it does not break any laws as you first supposed, not only that but you thought they only used it for their own marketing which also turned out to be wrong.

 

But hey jab1, at least you apologised the last time I pointed out you were wrong !

Re: Broadband speed

Well I don't think the the Sun or even the Daily Star circulation is going to go lower anythime soon here.

When you agree to T&C's they probably have a clause which says "They might share data with third parties". Well you can read that as "Will share". When you agree to the T&C's, you are saying they have your consent for them to do so.

I am just just talking about PlusNet here - any company.

Otherwise you could take them to court for disclosing details about yourself which they shouldn't have done.

I am not saying it is right and underhanded - I agree it is. I worked for a company where we had to be very careful of the DPA.

Don't quite understand how you reached that conclusion, @tiredeyes - I certainly haven't said it, and I wouldn't - as it isn't true, but keep on deflecting. If you post any correct information, I may respond, but you are getting a little boring to be honest.

@tiredeyes 

 


A number of your posts on this topic are totally irrelevant, you clearly stand by your claim about BT selling customers data despite the views from others this is not the case.....

If you feel so strongly about the issue then you need to take it up with the appropriate authorities rather than wasting your time arguing the point here and of even more importance wasting our time.

Re: Broadband speed

@jab1 - It is true, I have shown you it's true within this thread via a number of screenshots. Including showing you these "trusted third parties" or "partners" are data brokers - It's boring repeating myself to those uninformed members.

 

@gleneagles - It's very easy for you to solve your own issue, don't read OR REPLY 🙄

Re: Broadband speed

I think you are a little 'uninformed' @tiredeyes , but please carry on insulting people, I'm sure you enjoy it. It would give your claims a little more credence if you didn't just grab the first Google result and post it, but actually posted a non-sponsored piece not from a mass-circulation 'infomag'.

I've posted screenshots from BTs own website privacy policy, you know those ones that proved you wrong last time (twice) but hey, you keep on deflecting !
