Related News: Man who owns a smart TV says he’s ‘afraid’ of using it after reading its privacy policy

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Yahoo! News published an article titled Man who owns a smart TV says he’s ‘afraid’ of using it after reading its privacy policy.

“The only problem is that I’m now afraid to use it. You would be too — if you read through the 46-page privacy policy,” Price wrote. “The amount of data this thing collects is staggering. It logs where, when, how, and for how long you use the TV. It sets tracking cookies and beacons designed to detect ‘when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message.’ It records ‘the apps you use, the websites you visit, and how you interact with content.’ It ignores ‘do-not-track’ requests as a considered matter of policy.”
