Your Privacy Is Totally Obliterated in the Next Version of WINDOWS

SORRY. THIS IS NOT A JOKE.

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION IF YOU PLAN TO USE THE NEXT VERSION OF WINDOWS, WINDOWS 10

We regret to inform you of the following. If you use the next version of WINDOWS, you will notice in the Microsoft Privacy Statement (updated July 2015), this statement under “REASONS WE SHARE PERSONAL DATA,” third paragraph under “Full text,:” “...we will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have good belief that doing so is necessary.” After this incredible statement, Microsoft gives four possible reasons for believing (in good faith!) it to be necessary, number one being: “1. comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process, including law enforcement or other government agencies.”

Draw your own conclusions about (1) why Microsoft included this statement in their “privacy” statement, (2) what “government agencies” might want access to data such as what is in your private emails, and (3) is there any privacy left in relation to the government? You use the next version of WINDOWS at your own risk.

We suspect that these spyware additions to Windows happened following an offer from the US government that Bill Gates couldn’t refuse… There will undoubtedly be more 4th Amendment trashing to come. Great source of security info:
