Étiquette : tracking (Page 2 of 14)

“Social Data retourne la responsabilité aux victimes : « les utilisateurs qui ne souhaitent pas donner leurs informations passent leurs profils en privé ». Ce raisonnement technique ne correspond pas à la réalité légale, notamment en Europe, où le RGPD protège les données personnelles des résidents contre leur traitement sans consentement préalable.”

“The Secret Service paid for a product that gives the agency access to location data generated by ordinary apps installed on peoples’ smartphones, an internal Secret Service document confirms. The sale highlights the issue of law enforcement agencies buying information, and in particular location data, that they would ordinarily need a warrant or court order to obtain. This contract relates to the sale of Locate X, a product from a company called Babel Street.”

“Google records what people are doing on hundreds of thousands of mobile apps even when they follow the company’s recommended settings for stopping such monitoring, a lawsuit seeking class action status alleged on Tuesday. The data privacy lawsuit is the second filed in as many months against Google by the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner on behalf a handful of individual consumers.”

StopCovid ou encore ? – Cédric O

Le choix, selon Cédric O !

“Le choix est donc très simple : tant que l’immunité collective n’est pas atteinte (ce qui est un horizon lointain), l’alternative se résume ainsi :
1. Tout faire pour couper les « départs de feu » le plus rapidement possible, y compris en utilisant des outils numériques comme StopCovid, dans des conditions très encadrées et proportionnées (et dans un contexte où l’ensemble des pays européens prévoient de déployer de tels outils) ;
2. Refuser ces outils pour des raisons philosophiques, mais dans ce cas accepter un risque significatif de malades et de morts supplémentaires.”

“Decentralized Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing This repository contains a proposal for a secure and decentralized privacy-preserving proximity tracing system. Its goal is to simplify and accelerate the process of identifying people who have been in contact with an infected person, thus providing a technological foundation to help slow the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The system aims to minimise privacy and security risks for individuals and communities and guarantee the highest level of data protection.”

“Our team at MIT, working with partners from around the world, has developed a system for identifying people at risk of infecting COVID-19, by using the Bluetooth signals that our cell phones send each other. Privacy is a bedrock value so our system can notify individuals of potential contacts without revealing any private information to other individuals, the government, health care providers, or cell service providers.”

“Apple and Alphabet Inc.’s Google are developing their own technology to help build contact-tracing apps. Their platform should become available to governments and public health authorities everywhere next month, according to an official in the French minister’s office. Still, the French are banking on a home-grown solution. France’s conflict with Apple is part of a broader debate about how much data such apps should collect and who should have access to it.”

“Mobility Trends Reports Learn about COVID⁠-⁠19 mobility trends in countries/regions and cities. Reports are published daily and reflect requests for directions in Apple Maps. Privacy is one of our core values, so Maps doesn’t associate your data with your Apple ID, and Apple doesn’t keep a history of where you’ve been.”

Privacy-Preserving Contact Tracing – Apple and Google

Apple-Google Privacy-Preserving Contact Tracing

“All of us at Apple and Google believe there has never been a more important moment to work together to solve one of the world’s most pressing problems. Through close cooperation and collaboration with developers, governments, and public health providers, we hope to harness the power of technology to help countries around the world slow the spread of COVID‑19 and accelerate the return of everyday life.”
