TP Vision

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (nl) started an investigation into TP Visions collection and handling of usage data in 2012, and in 2013 reported these are not conforming to law in the Netherlands. Through the use of cookies and logfiles, TP Vision was found to be able to monitor when a Philips smart TV is switched on, which programmes are being watched, which websites are being visited and which apps are being used, without clearly informing their customers and asking their prior permission.

Scary stuff, I think I'm going to stop connecting the TVs I review to the net. Thanks for sharing.

Warmest regards
Vincent

Fooling the masses with gadgets that the government uses to control your life.

Welcome to the new dictatorship with mindless consumers that think they are free.

I suggest wearing a tinfoil hat if you have some dirty secrets to hide from the government.
