Will this service read my personal data?

The moment I heard about it I went out to my browser and Google it. Found the link, I clicked and read what’s on the page to know what is it all about. Don’t understand much, I decided to sign-up and take a chance. It’s free. So, why not?

Sign-up process is easy, and very simple. Filling up my first and last name, email, picked up password, and a custom URL. Less than a minute I am registered. What’s next is connecting some third party services like Google, Google+, IMAP service, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and more. Psstt.. I did not connected my Facebook account to it.

Done with the process, the web directs me to my personal dashboard. Looking around many tabs, I found out that I can read and even reply my email with the service. A minute later something came up in my mind. If I can read my email and reply with this service, it must have the ability to read my personal data. The question is, will they read my personal data? Or even sell my personal data?

Nimble

Let’s head on to the most-hated part of registration process, read Privacy Policy.

And look what I found.

“.. Any information shared through use of the Nimble Site or Nimble Services or Third Party Services accessed through Nimble Services will be shared with and stored by Nimble.

and this

“Sale of information. In order to accommodate changes in our business, we may sell or buy portions of our company or other companies or assets, including the information collected through this Web site. … “

Okay. I need some help to understand those parts. Anyone?

PS: Yes, it’s Nimble.

  1. Kali ini berita beneran atau termasuk yang tidak bisa dipertanggungjawabkan? Hehehehehe
    Question is, kok ya sempat2nya baca itu eula… Hahahaha

    1. Tadinya sih denger berita soal beberapa Googlers dan orang terkenal lain yang invest di Nimble. Nah, tertarik deh jadinya. Gitu sih. Oh, tentu saja kredibel beritanya.

      Memaksakan diri untuk baca EULA sih tepatnya. Ya karena shock, kok ternyata bisa baca dan balas email dll. :))
