Privacy, oh privacy!


#1

There has been a lot of discussion on privacy policies. Through out the world and in our group of 200 on telegram. It’s most beneficial if all of it was in one place. To understand things better - it is highly recommended that one ask questions about privacy policies.

It would be good if you post links to questions that have already been asked and answered. Would save much time.

Let the games begin!
