How to reduce anxiety about being informed about the NSA’s massive data collection programs, and how to avoid having your personal data leaked by the U.S. government.1.
Do not trust anything the government says about you.
The U.N. and other organizations that deal with information about people should have complete access to your information.
Even if they don’t have a legal warrant, the U-Verse should be allowed to access your data, because it’s public, and because they don.2.
Do NOT rely on government documents.
Government documents should never be trusted.
Even for government agencies, there is no need to trust them.3.
Do check with your lawyer before signing a contract with a government agency.
Government contracts should only be signed with a lawyer who is familiar with the law and who can represent you properly in court.4.
Make sure that your privacy is protected.
If you are a contractor, you should not be signing contracts with companies that are not legally required to disclose any information about you to them.5.
Do keep copies of all documents you sign with a company that is not required to keep records of you.6.
If the contract does not mention your name, put it in a box on your office or desk so that it’s not visible.
This way, your supervisor can look up the information and find it easily.7.
Never sign a contract unless you are familiar with it.
It should be signed by a trusted person.
If someone is signing it, it is more likely that they are familiar and trustworthy.8.
If your employer is doing work for you, be sure to tell your boss about it, and to ask for a copy of the contract.9.
Do your own research before signing your contract with your company.
Make a copy, and ask questions about what your contract will do for you.10.
If signing a new contract, read the contract carefully.
The documents are long, and you may find that they contain new terms or provisions.
It’s important to understand what they mean, what you can do about them, and what your rights are.
If you or someone you know is a victim of the NSA data collection program, contact your elected officials.
Tell them that the U and the other organizations dealing with your data should not have access to it.
Let them know that your concerns are valid, and that you’re willing to be informed about them.
