In an era where online activities generate extensive data trails, it is crucial to be mindful of the information shared. This includes personal data such as Social Security and driver’s license numbers, as well as health data collected by devices like smartwatches. While complete control over data processing may not be possible, individuals have the power to make informed decisions about sharing their data.
EstesGroup offers the following steps to empower individuals in managing their personal information:
- Be Informed: Understand the types of data collected about you.
- Review Privacy Settings: Regularly check and update privacy settings on websites and apps.
