Like that free app? What’s the cost for you to use it?

| Chelsea Fibert, Meredith Robertson and Bryce Dokkestul

As we grow more dependent on the Internet, cell phones and other technology for every aspect of our lives, our privacy diminishes by the minute. In your excitement to use a new app, do you know what you are agreeing to when you click the “I agree to the terms and conditions” requirement?

Cullen Hoback, filmmaker of the well-known documentary "Terms and Conditions May Apply," will be on campus Nov. 17 presenting for The Forum about what governments and corporations legally take from you with a simple click of a button.

“A lot of people believe that they have nothing to hide, so they just share everything,” Hoback explains during his presentations. “But you may not know what you have to hide until it’s too late.”

He will demonstrate how everyday people fall into real-life surveillance with one click, and teaches his audiences what we can do about it, if we can do anything at all.

Event info
The Forum is at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, in Schofield Auditorium. Find more details, including ticket information, online.
