but i don't have the old policy so i can't tell what was actually private if it was at all or this site was just a drm-free site to start with and people just though they kept your privacy safe this whole time without reading the Privacy and Cookie Policies.
The original policy of GOG had basic (and still rather wide) clauses. This got modified around the time Galaxy was coming out (when GOG added a lot more "we can do this" clauses related to data collection).
Hell, I was arguing back then that the intended phrasing was doing nothing to legally prevent GOG from getting into the data-mining racket. My long-learned lesson when dealing with any corporate entity is - if it's not written down solid in the contract, any assurance is worth diddly.
Yet here we are, mostly courtesy of the "if you have nothing to hide" and "GOG can do nothing wrong" crowd.
All in all, what gives GOG the fucking right to make decisions for me ? WTF is this ?
The brand new world, where clueless and naive masses are easily swayed to allow corporations enjoyment of profits from data-mining, without paying the slightest attention to the fact that Cambridge Analytica had already proven beyond any question that what may appear the least indifferent data point still will be used against you.
I honestly had trust in GOG. I now feel like being back-stubbed by someone I love. :(
