Online Privacy – Introduction

What does it take for a stalker, employer, private investigator, government or even a fraudster to get to know about you nowadays? Well, not much! 10 years ago, it would have been very difficult for anyone to get any information about you but today, with the aid of the internet, this is very easy – especially for the youth of the western civilisation. In the next few articles I look to cover the following:

  • Self-contributed data.

Each of these teams were some distance below England in the Fifa Rankings so England had gone into the World Cup with the confidence that they will Top their group also the fact that they had good results in their qualifiers added to their confidence.
