    When I got my galaxy 5, I did set up a Samsung galaxy account. Now a new version with notices came up on the phone. There are things here I do not like and questions I have.

    Here is my question

    I do not want any company to use my data. I don't want ads and I don't want them to decide what I want to buy and then send me all the info junk. Can I reject their privacy policy. How can I select everything except these changes that affect my data and the use of it, storing cookies from companies, and invading my privacy in various ways including data combination and storage usage, cookies, etc.


    Thanks

    Your best option is to cancel your service, honestly. All of what you stated comes with the territory...

    I wouldn't go that far. You can opt-out of data collection with your carrier. It's actually FCC regulation to have that option available.

    Secondly, if your Samsung is anything like my LG when I activated, you could refuse their policy, but you wouldn't have access to manufacturer specific apps. For my LG, it was smaller apps like Qnote and Qremote.

    Well, i would say now, you can't run away from ..... I would say if you disagrees on that you may need to cancel down all the services, that's the only best option you have ! :(
