Panel discussion “Privacy and Security, Transparency and the Internet” following screening of “Terms and Conditions May Apply”
Have you ever read the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies connected to every website you visit, phone call you make, or app you use? Of course you haven’t. But those agreements allow corporations to do things with your personal information you could never even imagine. What are you really agreeing to when you click “I accept”?
Following the screening of “Terms and Conditions May Apply,” join Prof. Elias (Government) and Prof. Gieseking (Digital and Computational Studies) of Bowdoin, and USM Prof. Clearwater (law) previously of Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society for a discussion of the film and issues of privacy, security, transparency, and the Internet.
