Every day consumers and companies are monitored on the Internet.
Digital multinationals store and process our information about what we like, our purchases, our physical and mental health, sexual orientation, location, and political, union and religious opinions and thoughts.
They violate our privacy without any kind of control. We users have no way of knowing what data they collect, with whom they share the information and how they use it. However, these companies have identified and profiled us under the excuse of personalized advertising.
Most of us don’t want to be spied on, nor do we want to receive advertisements based on them reading our emails or listening to our conversations. Nor do we want to be profiled. We oppose these practices that violate our right to privacy.
Cookies and trackers assist in this illegal collection of information. Website owners, most of the time uninformed, insert them to obtain small advantages in digital marketing without knowing that, at the same time, they are selling data of their own online business and clientele.
With this information, digital multinationals:
1- They manipulate the market and consumers.
2- They discriminate against consumers.
3- They provide biased and erroneous information.
4- They carry out unfair competition.
5- They increase the security risks of our personal data:
WE DEMAND RESPECT because it is possible to sell advertising space without relying on intimate details of consumers.
We want a transparent advertising market, without surveillance or spying on users and where content providers are rewarded for the quality of their content.
Just these days, privacy associations in Europe and the U.S. have called on American and European governments to take action to put an end to practices that threaten citizens’ privacy rights. We adhere to this Charter without hesitation.
