    E-bay Secure?

    This is a link to a site that has found out that it takes very little effort to get information on e-bay members:

    though, the details are hidden amongst the 4,023 word user contract, which only links to the "privacy policy" which is another 3,750. Two-thirds down the way they mention the whole "we'll give out your data to anyone" part.
    How many people actually read the EULA? People assume that this **** is illegal. Let this be a reality check - it isn't. Nothing is illegal if you agree to it (almost). If anybody actually read the EULA's for programs like Kazaa they would never use them.

    By not reading these agreements, people are turning the Internet into a huge information gathering machine with the sole purpose of destroying what little privacy you have left in this world.

    Ebay has existed for what, 3 years now, and this is the first group to find out about this clause? Meaning not one person in 3 years has read all of Ebay's service agreement? This is a sad state of affairs.

    Sullivan says eBay has recorded and documented every iota of data that has come through the Web site since it first went online in 1995. Every time someone makes a bid, sells an item, writes about someone else, even when the company cancels a sale for whatever reason - it documents all of the pertinent information.

    Now how scary is that? Send an anonymous email asking for info and you have everything that user has ever done!
