This week in digital privacy, from Fathom Analytics

Who’s watching us when we spend time online? Are there more ethical software alternatives we can use to grow our business without spying on our customers? What information is big tech collecting about all of us? How are new privacy laws going to affect how we run our companies?

All of these topics and more, every week, in a few paragraphs. From your friends at Fathom (simple, privacy-focused website analytics).

Note, this began as a podcast but has now transitioned into a weekly article instead.

Above Board, the official Fathom podcast July 30, 2021
