    You are being spied on – by both countries and companies. When you drive your car, do your shopping or use your computer, you are being tracked and information on you is stored and then used to influence you and your behaviour. #Author and researcher Carissa Véliz says companies can decide whether or not to give bank loans or health insurance based on the data they’ve bought from social media giants.
