This seems to be the year of digital Santas. Many of whom offer some level of “personalization.” My Santa Talk does this as well.
While we believe that most companies who are creating digital Santas are reputable, we do live in the day and age of hackers and other nefarious creatures. So, before opting-in and providing ANY personal information, please think about a few things.
First, MY SANTA TALK is 100% anonymous. Being on mobile web means (a) we do not have your phone number; (b) we don’t have an IP address, (c) we don’t know your name or have access to any personal data on your device, (d) we don’t have your eMail address or any other sensitive data.
The digital Santas that require users to fill out a form and eMail a submission? Or, digital Santas that are “app” based or respond to phone numbers all start having access to sensitive personal information. Again, the companies who are creating these are likely to be reputable, but, you may be providing a fair bit of personal information, including information about your children.
Creating a “personalized” experience that’s anonymous was not easy. But, we think it was worth the effort. Mobile or online, let’s be careful out there, OK?
