Not only that, but nearly all of the emails asking me for consent are doing it via MailChimp whose terms and conditions make it clear they will be taking this info for themselves, aggregating it and then using it to spam me from outside the GDPR zone.
This includes my landlord who claimed he needed consent to have a copy of my email address in order to communicate with me, and in order to allow him to email me, I would have to give my email address to this US based email marketing firm.
None of the companies who send me emails need to get consent under GDPR as they are using the data for the purpose for which it was collected, are keeping it securely, and are not passing it to others. However this GDPR consent via MailChimp is breaking all those rules and more.
Well they were hired by Trump and Leave to do what they have been accused of doing. Leave probably broke spending limits by using them and Trump probably bent the rules on foreign participation in US elections by doing so. They claimed to have got a 7% shift in undecided voters and boasted that their work swung the election and have been selling there wares around the world to dodgy politicians on the back of the boasting.
Now they say it's worthless.
Even if it didn't work the way they claimed, they still tried to do it, it's like bank robbers claiming they are innocent because the vault was empty.
At a former company in the 90's. the Personnel Manager was forced to change his title to HR Manager after an external audit when it was pointed out his duties were to represent the company and not the employees.
One memorable incident was during one of tbe first round of redundancies when we pointed out several breaches of legislation in terms of information required to be made available to people under threat of redundancy. He asked how did we know all this and we told him we had got a booklet on redundancy procedure from the Citizens Advice Bureau. He the asked if he could borrow a copy. I think he was quite surprised by our response that we wern't going to help him make us redundant, expressed quite succinctly by some.
"Imagine a world where e2e encryption is scrapped from WhatsApp.
Terrorist will just stop using WhatsApp.
Public Key encryption exists and will never cease to exist - but we have elected idiots who continually exhibit their stupidity.
I used to think they were all in the cohort of the evil-lizards - but nope, they're just a bit thick."
Not thick at all. All non-breakable communications will be declared illegal. Anyone using them will be locked up until they provide the means to decrypt them (legislation for this already exists it you are arrested for something else).
Terrorists will change to non digital codes like prearranged phrases.
John has a long moustache.
"JPALS, by contrast, is a GPS-based system. Rather than the ship broadcasting a glideslope to world+dog, JPALS emits an encrypted burst of data that allows the approaching aircraft to precisely fix the ship's position and make a safe landing"
I'm fairly sure that the subset of world+dog that want to and could do anything about a ajrcraft carrier would already be aware if its presence. Probably from the news.
Unfortunately the 99 person threshold is defined by establishment, which has now been defined as a "local business unit" as opposed to the entire company. So as long as there are less than 99 redundan ies per office they only need 30 days.
See https://www.employmentlawwatch.com/2015/02/articles/employment for details (one of many legal sites that have articles about this).
When I was last made redundant the previous interpretaion was employed, now it's not so easy to tell.
I've got a couple of PDA's that predate smart phones by quite a while, touch screen and all. The evolution of that to smart phones (i.e. add phone module) to me seems the natural progression.
So in terms of VR if we say their origin is smartphones, then in reality you have to step further back to the PDA's as the VR aspects do not rely on the phone aspects of the smartphone.
“I’m asking Apple to return to September ’14, a time when Apple made no complaints that the operating system it was using, iOS 7, was insecure,” said Cyrus Vance, district attorney for Manhattan during an interview last week with Charlie Rose on PBS. Vance also said that he had 175 iPhones waiting to be unlocked should the DoJ prevail in this case.
What are speech, inking, and typing services?
When you interact with your Windows device by speaking, writing (handwriting), or typing, Microsoft collects speech, inking, and typing information—including information about your Calendar and People (also known as contacts)—that helps personalize your experience. This information improves your device’s ability to correctly recognize your input, such as your pronunciation and handwriting. You can turn the Speech, inking, and typing setting (which is called Getting to know you) on or off in Settings.
"No we don't do these things"
"There's no such program"
"We wouldn't be able to do such things even if we wanted to"
"OK we do some of that, but not as much as Snowden says"
"Snowden's making it up, he's a liar"
"OK we do that, but not to Americans so its OK"
"OK, we do it to Americans too, but with proper oversight"
"OK, the people supposedly overseeing the programs don't know the whole story"
"I want to make clear that America is not interested in spying on ordinary people."
"I'm satisfied that the intelligence agencies were obeying the law at all times"
Now, why don't I believe you. Especially as a non-American I'm apparently not an "ordinary person"
The internet might help in education. Education might help improve peoples lives. It might help pull people up from a survival culture into something better. It might have the same impact on society that the printing press had in Europe.
Or it might not, but why is it not worth trying? It doesn't stop directly trying to eradicate disease, it may even be complimentary.
Thin bread, two slices per toast. Grill one side of each, top one piece with cheddar, flip the other, when toasted sufficiently, put mustard on the cheese, top with the fully toasted half and then flip to toast the remaining side. Leave too cool a little to prevent mouth damage and serve with a puddle of ketchup for dipping.
I know what I'm having for tea tonight!
