Data Privacy Month 2015: Question the Cloud!

During Data Privacy Month, Information Services encourages all community members to think about your use of “the cloud” as it refers to cloud computing services such as Google Drive, Flickr, or commercial webmail services such as Hotmail or Yahoo, but also as a metaphor for the internet in general. Who has your data? Why do they have it? How are they permitted to use it?
