Ban Datacollectors like SezWho

If you are active in social networking - there is a monster behind your back.
Watching every step you take, seeing sites, you go to, reading what you comment and say online and stores it in a database that is available for everyone to see!

Who is it?

Without your knowledge or consent - these guys are amassing a gigantic database of every
move in social circles. Every site that has their software installed and that you visit, as well as those you came from is recorded and entered. The numbers of platforms that this perversion
is available for is continually rising and the numbers of site applying the plugins as well.
Blogger, Wordpress, Typepad and the list goes on.

While the software is praised as the interface to all social networking it is at the same time
the Big Brother that we never saw coming. Unless of course we use common sense and
our brains. Fortunately they will delete your data if you ask them to - and that is what
I ask you to do! Tell them to go packing and take you off.
Write to and tell them to delete all your data!

Here's a button for your site, if you would like to make others aware of what companies
like SezWho are doing! Just copy the code and paste it into your website.

No to Big Brother

No to Big Brother

No to Big Brother

Sign in to Mr. Linky as a statement that you are too protesting against this kind of
unwarranted and threatening datacollection method.

Hi Klaus,
Thank You for this information. I signed up, but never installed it. I will go and ask them to remove my blog link fore I have visited many who have it.

Great Kriz! Anything that raises awareness is a good thing!

Thanks for the button. It's up on my page and I hope a lot more people become aware before 1984 is more than just a novel. :(

What's next I wonder? They'll be watching us through our camcorders on our computers?
I added it to my blog and told them not to follow me around.

/ G/oogle is blocking terms or documents from search queries for the US Intelligence Community (IC)
Apparently they are not only doing it for the Chinese, they are doing it here in the US.
Reports that expose /G/oogle for censoring are also blocked.

thanks for the links

Thanks. I now have the button, and went to privacy@sezwho, but they just give you forms. I "opted out", but am unsure - is that sufficient?

When I do a search, I use Scroogle instead of Google.


How can we tell we have it?

If you run into a site that works with SezWho, it will show a text next to the users name, saying "Who am I?".
Put your mouse over it and check it out, as well as the information, SezWho collected about you, without you knowing about it.

Yes, thanks for the info and for providing a link, a place for comments, and a tool for expressing our protests!

Yes, it's awful the way government and private entities can snoop on private individuals.

Thanks for this link and info!
