Headline, March 12 2021/ ''' '' STUDENTS PRIVACY SETTINGS '' ''' : !WOW!


ON THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY - for every subject in the world, the power and honor of change, lies with the students of the entire world. OneShare-Piece-Peace.

IN NEW AND HIGHEST DEMOCRATIC TRADITIONS AND WITH ALMIGHTY GOD'S BLESSINGS, The World Students Society by 2033 would have accumulated and created Data worth US$39 Billion : ! Honors by Honors !.

Would or Could a Global World Class - AAA rated Bank, say of the reputed class and function of Standard Chartered Bank, or J.P. Morgan Chase & Co, consider taking and accepting this value as a collateral?

Ever and always, I miss the wisdom of this great American, Philosopher and Economist and Nobel Laureate, Professor Dr. Milton Friedman. I pray for a special place for him in the heavens !

OPT-IN-DEFAULTS : CHOOSE PROTECTION : CHOOSE !WOW! : On The World Students Society all Data related honors and storage and articulations and made-ups is owned by every student of the world.

THE VETO : to Data's premise and usage is the entire responsibility, and prerogative of the ''Global Founder Framers''. The revenues, when and if, if any, will go to The World Students Society in the best honors and service of humanity.

THE ENTIRE WORLD HAS BECOME INURED to the relentless collection of their personal information online. Imagine for example - if getting your suit pressed at the dry cleaner's automatically and permanently signed you up to have scores of inferences about you -

Measurements, gender, race, language, fabric preferences, credit card type shared with retailers, cleaning product advertisers and hundreds of others dry cleaners, who themselves had arrangements to share data with others. It might give you pause.

But that's the daily reality on the Internet. Every minute a person spends online helps countless companies build a thicker dossier about that person. Despite what corporations profess, much of the personal data is used not to improve products themselves but to make those products more attractive to advertisers.

ONE STRAIGHTFORWARD solution is to let people opt in to data collection on apps and websites.

Today, with few exceptions, loads of personal data are collected personally by default unless consumers take actions to opt out of the practice - which, in most cases, requires dropping the service entirely.

Corporations say opt-out provisions put controls into the hands of the consumers. But users are no more likely to switch off data collection than they are to read through the onerous and lengthy terms and condition policies that litter the web.

Many companies bury their data collection controls deep within their websites. Even if consumers can find them, their choices most likely don't apply to a company's subsidiaries or affiliates.

Because of how personal data is shared, ''there could be thousands or hundreds of thousands of companies that have data on you,'' said Stacy Gray, senior counsel at the nonprofit Future of Privacy Forum.

Culling and distributing personally identifiable data is how web users are served up the lucrative ads that can seem distressingly relevant.

However, consumers' data is now so widely dispersed that security breaches can sweep up information about people who've never even visited certain websites. It should not be the role of consumers to make marketers' jobs easier.

In America, Congress has shown a willingness to curtail the power of the largest technology companies, which amassed record profits amid the pandemic, even as unemployment rates soared and cities placed limits on local commerce for months at a stretch.

So, without comprehensive federal privacy legislation, regulating the web has been left to states and companies. That's led to confusing jumble laws and policies, which can be difficult for the companies to comply with and for consumers to attend.

Bombard someone long enough with consent requests and users will click ''yes'' to anything to make it stop. Opt-in-rules need to be backed with strong enforcement, particularly around misleading or purposefully disruptive consent pop-ips that can dupe users into signing away their data.

With more and more students spending time at home, tied to devices that relentlessly track their every keystroke, click and streaming show selection, granting users some semblance of control over their own data is more urgent than ever.

While Congress has dithered for years without advancing legislation that will address Big Tech's profound power disparity. If lawmakers wait until the next major data breach, it will be too late.

The Honor and Serving of the Latest Global Operational Research on Laws, Data, And The Future continues. The World Students Society thanks The Editorial Board of The New York Times.

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Big Tech, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all prepare and register for Great Global Elections on The World Students Society : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter - !E-WOW! - The Ecosystem 2011:
