No one really reads the terms and conditions connected to every website they visit, phone call they make, or app they may have downloaded.

But every day, billion-dollar corporations are learning more about your interests, your friends and family, your finances, and your secrets... and are not only selling the information to the highest bidder, but freely sharing it with the government. And you agreed to all of it. With fascinating examples and so-unbelievable-they're-almost-funny facts, filmmaker Cullen Hoback exposes what governments and corporations are legally taking from you every day - turning the future of both privacy and civil liberties uncertain. 

From whistle blowers and investigative journalists to zombie fan clubs and Egyptian dissidents, this disquieting exposé demonstrates how every one of us has incrementally opted-in to a real-time surveillance state, click by click- and what, if anything, can be done about it.

    I liked this one a lot. Both entertaining and thought provoking, I’d certainly recommend it to anyone who’s interested in learning more about how their personal information is (potentially) being used in the Age of the Internet.

    An excellent documentary that covered terrifyingly crucial information and expert analysis. A great film; should be required viewing in all schools and colleges.
