Company that provides Internet connections and services to individuals and organizations. For a monthly fee, ISPs provide computer users with a connection to their site (seedata transmission), as well as a log-in name and password. They may also provide software packages (such as browsers), e-mail accounts, and a personal Web site or home page. ISPs can host Web sites for businesses and can also build the Web sites themselves. ISPs are all connected to each other through network access points, public network facilities on the Internet backbone.
That's sounds like a paranoid viewpoint, Dana
I would suggest that for the most part, very few people really care what you have to say on twitter, email, or youtube beyond the possibility that you might be a consumer. After I was no longer with youtube it took a week before any of my 100+ so called "friends" even noticed. The "profit" motive you mention is more like it.
Unless you are planning a crime, or avoiding your taxes, the government will never bother you, I will bet you a fiver on it!
