Eric J. Gertler, "Prying Eyes: Protect Your Privacy From People Who Sell to You, Snoop on You, or Steal From You"
Random House Reference | 2004 | ISBN: 0375720936 | siPDF | 448 pages | 7.3 MB
News stories about identity theft, anti-terrorist legislation, cyber-stalking, marketing databases, and employer surveillance practices are evidence that your privacy is violated more and more every day. Using examples from real-life situations, Prying Eyes reveals how, often without your knowledge, people use your personal information to sell to you, snoop on you, and steal from you.
Eric Gertler reveals how to minimize your exposure in every facet of life–at home, at the office, on vacation, at the store, at the doctor’s office, online, and on your cell phone. Beyond reporting and speculation, Prying Eyes will empower you to take charge of your personal information before someone else does.
