Despite their motto of "Don't be evil" Google is apparently still spying on students:

Quote:
Google is still spying on students, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has claimed.

The EFF on Tuesday filed a complaint with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in which it said that Google is breaking a pledge to keep students’ personal information private and is using things like a student’s entire browsing history to build profiles to use for its own purposes.

The EFF said in a release that it uncovered Google’s data mining of schoolchildren’s personal information while researching its Spying on Students campaign, which launched the same day the EFF filed the complaint.


Quote:
While many of us can choose to stay away from Google’s scanning clutches by avoiding use of its email, students don’t have that choice, given that some schools require them to use Chromebooks.

What is that saying?

"Do as I say! Not as I do!"

Seems to fit. No?
