The company that I am going to write about is called Radaris. This is a company, which collects and sells customers ' information. According to Radaris webpage (Radaris, 2015), the data that Radaris have about the customers ', is collected from a social media, official public records, publications and user reviews. Radaris cite says (Radaris, 2015) that the company does not create information; it is only packaging the costumer’s info that is available on the internet. This company 's goal is to connect business and people. Their slogan is “provide information that creates opportunities for you!” What kind of material does Radiaris collects and sells? It collects data about costumer’s background, sex offenders, reverse phone numbers, property …show more content…
The definition of this concept on Radaris site is- You expect openness from others and they expect the same from you. Everyone is accountable for their own words, deceit, abuse or misrepresentation of facts. People exercise their Freedom of Speech right guaranteed by the First Amendment by sharing information and knowledge about each other. (Radaris, 2015). As I was reading this definition I was astonish how absurd it was. In some parts I am agree with this quote, where it says that people should own their own words and before they speak or write they have to think twice. However, to spread information about someone and be protected by First Amendment, I think this is wrong. The only person that can share my information should be only me. I think it is wrong that someone can own my data and by owning it he can sell it. To support my idea I am going to use the Fourth Amendment which states that “Court said that a person knowingly exposes to the public, even in his own home or office, is not covered.

In the new digital world, once information becomes public it remains public forever. The site does not remove information by users ' requests (Radaris, 2015). From all three quotes I like this one, because this quote is very much related to our class reading and discussions. This quote says that there is no removals ones the information is on the air there is no way you can erase it.

Someone on the train took a picture of her and sold it to newspapers, and after a while her picture was not only on the newspapers it was all over the internet. This relates to my quote that whatever is out there it can’t be erased. And if now this girl wants to get a job the employer is able to see what she did may be ten years ago. I think this was very bad punishment for a girl, because in our young age we all do mistakes, and this punishment will stay on this girl background for a long time. This concludes that now we live in an ear where technology does the entire job for us. So we have to know what we are doing on the internet and outside of internet, because you never know when your photo will appear on the internet or in the
