Language Beauty

Marketing
There are moments in time where certain things really stand out. One of those is the artistic beauty in the written language.

Sure, there is a inner beauty to a well written work. One can really appreciate the thought process that the author places into their work. But there is another beauty that gets overlooked.

To really appreciate it one needs to see it. I am not an expert in other languages. I understand a small amount of Spanish, and I do mean poco. The one language that jumped out at me today was Japanese. There is a beauty to the swirls and curves of the written word. It is as though the words actually paint a picture on the page. Somehow it is as though the picture is telling another story all its own.

Take a look at the following links in the various language translations and see for yourself if the picture speaks to you.

Privacy Policy - Yea, Right!

I am sure by now most everyone has signed up for various information on the Internet. Some of you may have even read the online privacy policies for your favorite online publications. What I am going to tell you, some may find hard to believe, but a number of policies are anything but private.

Here is a quote from a website privacy policy, "In some instances, we operate shared web sites with businesses affiliated with us. Our privacy policy will apply to these web sites, and our affiliates"

This particular site stated in the sentence before that they would not share the information submitted on their site to any outside parties. The actual quote, "We do not share personal identifying information with any third party without your permission." If you stop reading there or go on, the entire paragraph makes logic sense, until... You do some research.

I was curious about how many shared web sites this particular business had so I did a search for the company itself, but that was not telling me anything. So I said to myself, everything is possible. I thought, if these guys have shared websites, then they probably use the same language in their privacy policies. So, I did the following search. Click here

In the results page I found one company listed on (2/16/05 at 16:00 hrs. Pacific Time) that had the exact quote. The result stated, "1 of about 346 for..." At this point I wanted to check quickly if the page displayed was in fact the same page that I had read earlier. I clicked on the cache area and went down in the page to where the highlighted area was. Sure enough it was in fact the same. I verified this with other words with in the same general area. For example: The following three words were the same and in all uppercase, "PLEASE BE AWARE."

OK. So now I knew it was the same, but what about the 345 others? Following the instructions on the search results page, "... repeat the search with the omitted results included," I clicked there and saw a whole slew of other companies listed in the results.

Now I started comparing the language using the cache as before but with the other sites displayed. Once again, my findings were the exact same words in a number of the samples that I checked.

So, all of these sites use those same words. What does that tell us? It tells us one of two things. Either all 346 websites are the same company, or there is a lot of plagiarism going on. I don't think it is plagiarism.

With that in mind, their privacy policy includes sharing the information with all 346 websites plus, the un-named number of affiliates. Can you trust the other sites not to share the information with themselves? They say they will not share with any "third party without your permission," but what about their other business sites that they jointly operate?

This policy is vague...

What do you think?

To Live By On The Net

Here are Business Marketing and Advertising Ethics B2B + ethics values to live by on the Net.

Ethical Marketing

  • Honesty: (The best policy) When dealing with customers and clients, not following this policy comes back to bite people time and time again.
  • Integrity: Don’t be swayed by shortsightedness. If you see a potential for a quick buck, ask yourself if this really is the proper way to go about doing something. Businesses have been guilty of shortsightedness themselves. They have extracted the quick buck at the expensive of their integrity and consumers' wallets.
  • Trustworthy: Remember, when working with a client he or she is putting their trust in you. Hold onto that trust dearly and don't do anything that would harm it. They are trusting you to help them out on the Net.
