One of the most important things in our connected world is privacy. Telecom operators and web sites have access to names, locations, habits of their customers.
This week the U.S. Senate voted narrowly to repeal regulations requiring internet service providers to do more to protect customers’ privacy than websites, according to Bloomberg
The rules till now meant that internet providers would need to obtain consumer consent before using precise geolocation, financial information, health information, children’s information and web browsing history for advertising and internal marketing.
In order to become law the new regulatrion should be approved by the U.S. House of Representatives.
