In this week’s Chatterbox episode, Andrew and Kassy discuss an important topic: internet privacy. We now live in a world where so much of our personal information can be found and manipulated with just a few clicks of the mouse. Tune in to hear what Andrew and Kassy have to say about this topic.

Fun facts

Read the fine print! Anytime you sign up for a new service or buy a new device, there’s usually a Terms and Conditions page that one must read and agree to before using the service or device. However, most people simply scroll to the bottom of the page, click the Agree button, and move on without even glancing at the long lines of tiny print. This is not advisable, however, because you could have unknowingly given your permission for that service or company to sell your data to the highest bidder.

Expressions included in the study guide

  • Spur of the moment
  • To take off
  • An influx of [something]
  • Legalese
  • To blow the whistle
  • Flagged
