Email: via web hosting service vs paid

Any guides or recommendations on email service like protonMail vs setting up your own mail setup on a paid web hosting service like DigitalOcean?Naturally a paid service has minimal setup and maintenance but has a fee.Just wondering what others have chosen and tips. I was thinking of going the web hosting route and setup nextcloud and email and was wondering what I’m overlookingFor example * privacy will depend on the web hosting provider you get (is there a recommend list of web providers? I don’t recall such a list on provscytools.io) * are the typical suite of cPanel options sufficient? * do people prefer mailinabox over the cPanel options

How to get a package secretly shipped?

So I live with my parents. I need to order something online and have it shipped without them knowing. I am a minor, so a PO Box won’t work. How or where can I send these so that they will not know? Btw my reason for this is that I am ordering Christmas presents for them, and they check all packages I order to make sure I’m not doing any weird stuff. Any ideas Reddit? Thanks!

Do we need consumer privacy education?

Do consumers understand their privacy rights, in their market, in their language and in the context of the experience with a brand?​My experience to date has been privacy policy emails, policy links which force a ‘long read’ and in most cases encourages you to accept and move along swiftly. Can we do better? Should we do better?​Could conversational AI privacy education which helps a consumer make a quick decision on their privacy as part of the experience journey itself be a solution? Privacy should not be a one size fits all and consumers opinions change and they forget what they signed-up for, so should brands implement a continuous education and information sharing programme with their consumers which is not overwhelming, but which gives succinct neutral advice, so the informed consumer can enjoy the experience without wondering if their privacy is being abused?​The tech is there to make this a reality, however, we need a community which believes this is possible a certified community to train an Open Privacy AI and make it an omni-channel, unified and simple privacy experience.​is this a worthy crowd sourced and open-source project? A global privacy education conversational AI, trained by professionals, in every language for every market vertical, as a utility service for all business and consumers.
