Protecting your privacy
Each week we at the business desk will be presenting you with a tip on how
to better protect your privacy and this is our newest feature.
We are constantly striving to protect ourselves from scams and scammers, but
most of all we need to ensure that our privacy, confidentiality, and
independence are kept safe from prying eyes and those who thrive on
destroying our right to these precious commodities.
We welcome your feedback and look forward to bringing you great tips.

Paying at a restaurant
Okay, you have just enjoyed a sumptuous and delicious meal and now it is
time to pay.
You can pay either by cash and if so just make sure that you keep your
wallet out of sight as you remove your cash.
or you can use the good old Credit card or debit card.
For either of these two methods be sure to enter the pin number for yourself
if the keypad is user friendly for you.
If not, and if you are presented with a touch screen, you need to request
assistance at the service desk to ensure that your info is protected.
Chances are that the waiter may be very trust worthy but one never knows who
is watching from another table.
Or who is listening as you give your info to the waiter or at the service
desk if you need assistance to enter your info.
The newest thing here is that now you also need to decide how much of a tip
you wish to give and again; you need to depend on sighted assistance to
enter said tip.
Talk about not having complete control over what you are doing and entering.
You are at the mercy of someone you do not even know.
