Razer Synapse Privacy Policy (keylogging and s…

I’m a gamer and love Razer products but their software is essentially spyware. Razer Synapse is used to configure Razer devices (E.g. mouse sensitivity, keyboard function keys, LED color, etc.). I recently received a notification of their updated privacy policy in regard to GDPR. https://www.razer.com/legal/privacy-policy

I’ve declined and uninstalled, here are a few of the reasons why:

2) Information we may collect about you

© Information about how you use our products and services ► such as information about the amount of time you use our products/services for, your typing patterns, the pages you visit, and other information about your activities while using our hardware or software (including Synapse) or while logged into your Razer ID account. We collect this in order to provide feedback about your game performance, to develop our products and services, and to understand what your usage patterns and preferences are so that our marketing is relevant to you;

(f) Device Information ► such as information about your operating system, browser, software applications, IP address, geolocation, security status and other device information in order to improve your experience, to protect against fraud and manage risk;

Typing patterns = keylogging

Pages I visit = Spyware

These are just some examples of what is so common these days. This is where I have a real issue with this. I’ve spent a fortune on Razer products, but unless I agree to these terms I can’t use half of the functions without their software. For example, the programmable function keys on a Razer keyboard will only work with Synapse installed.

I consider this a case of when (not if) Razer suffers a data breach some time in the future, and this information is leaked.

Question About Providing Personal Info To Auth…

Can a person or persons provide “authorities” the personal info about a person who is suspicious and has posted a malicious intent to do something? Is this legal? I have heard the word, “doxxing.” The purpose of providing this info is NOT to maliciously discredit somebody, but to “alert” the authorities of this specific individual – to prevent a mass shooting, for example.

Can that person who provides this info to the authorities be held liable due to privacy issues? Thx in advance.

[Discussion] concerns related to whatsapp’s ne…

Hi everyone! Today i’ve recived an update for the whatsapp privacy terms that need to be accepted before the 9th of june. I’ve spent one hour looking at informations about what type of information they collect about you and I also didn’t find anything about it (i’ve searched on startpage italy). About 3 years ago I negate the informarion sharing between facebook and whatsapp and third-part companies. Since then i’ve never accepted new terms. Therefore this new terms are pretty scary AF. What do you think?
