Political campaigns follow you, too

Our smart phones are great for a lot of things. But they also allow other people and other companies to track your every move.

All you have to do is go to a political rally, and you might start seeing all kinds of political ads. Republican strategist Jessica Colon says it's no different from retailers.

“The information available to campaigns is no different to the demographics available to commercial advertisers,” Colon said.

And this has been going on for over ten years now.

“There definitely was a breakthrough in 2008 with the Presidential campaign. It pushed the envelope on what digital technology was capable of,” she explained.

Internet attorney Travis Crabtree says it's all legal, and that we set ourselves up to be tracked.

“The issue is the privacy policies tucked into these apps that no one reads,” Crabtree told KTRH. “As long as it’s disclosed they can do what they want,” Crabtree stated.

In other words, when you click on 'Agree' to terms and conditions, you are allowing this all to happen.
