Do you read the terms and conditions of the digital products and services you use every day?
Do you know that your Fitbit may collect data about feminine health tracking, do you know that Google may scan your emails, do you know that your smart toothbrush may collect data on the position of your toothbrush during brushing? Well no, probably not, because the likeliness is that you didn’t read the terms and conditions.
The onus is on the individual to click ‘I agree’, genuinely. But people are only human, not many of us have the time to read through the terms and conditions and often when we just agree because we want to carry on using the free service and get rid of that annoying notice that pops up.
The Data-Day posters are visuals that show you some of the things that you consent to when you click 'I Agree'. The original 'A Data-Day in London' was created for the Glass Room and it was updated in May 2018 for a more international audience prior to the General Data Protection Regulation's enforcement date.

If you want to take it one step further, we’ve also updated our ‘Lost in the Small Print’ tool which pulls out the most relevant bit of the terms and conditions to save you reading through the whole thing.
