The Internet Privacy Act
The internet is quickly growing and expanding with all kinds of new services and products which are offered, sold, and bought online. There are some regulations and laws that try to control the internet; however it is often very hard to enforce them and to catch the right culprit. There are many websites that will try to get some information about you and they will justify that they are obeying the internet privacy act. However, no such thing has been invented yet. The internet privacy act was supposedly signed by President Clinton in 1995. This is completely false as President Clinton never signed any such document. The websites which use the internet privacy act claim that President Clinton signed a document which restricts specific groups of people from visiting any website, when in fact there is no such document.
There is no actual internet privacy act – online scam companies use the invention as a way to extract confidential information about you and gain access to your assets. The internet privacy act is also used by online websites which sell music, drugs, videos or software illegally. They use the internet privacy act as a disclaimer and they try to use this fictitious act in court if they are arrested, claiming entrapment.
Here is how the internet privacy act is used by scam companies. If an online company is selling counterfeit Nike products, it will post a warning on its website that present or past employees of Nike cannot enter the website and that if they do, they would be violating article 431.322.12 of the internet privacy act signed by Bill Clinton in 1995. The actual purpose of the disclaimer was to make sure that Nike employees, owners, or company managers are deterred from seeing the content of the website and report it. Also, the internet privacy act was used to ensure customers that the website is legitimate, when actually it isn’t. This scheme was adopted by many online companies in the 90ties.
The internet privacy act is made to deter the government or companies from prosecuting a company for illegal sale of products or drugs. Even the people who bought these products illegally could be held accountable, even if they didn’t realise that the site is not a genuine affiliate of a company. The internet privacy act does not protect neither the sellers of the counterfeit products nor the customers that are buying them. Also, many scam website companies post on their website that their products are not original, but this doesn’t protect them against prosecution either since they are not allowed to sell them anyways.
In conclusion, you should be aware that the internet privacy act is code for scam. You should not get affiliated with any websites that have posted such a disclaimer. Their products are of low quality. If you pay and you don’t get anything delivered to your house, you cannot prosecute them since you would be incriminating yourself as well. The best thing to do is to simply have nothing to do with such websites.
