Advert program

Reading that several people are forced to use it at work is interesting. Due to proxying all meta data (including keystrokes) to harvest data (for marketing) we can't use goog chrome at work, as we would be passing members financial data to an un approved 3rd party - goog. We have internal web apps that we use a browser to access. I guess some businesses don't have to meet data protection laws that financial places do.

Maybe it's that when you click Agree, that makes it okay for personal use, but under GDPR can you legally process other peoples data though an advertising company?

Goog blocking ad blockers is understandable as the entire purpose of google is Marketing (and data harvesting to do so).

Blocking ads takes the entire reason they develop a browser mute.

Interesting times in data laws. I wonder what this landscape will look like in another 10 years.
