View Legal blog - Your digital footprint (part II) – some further comments on ‘stayin’ alive’** by Matthew Burgess

Last week’s post considered 6 of the key areas we suggest be captured on any checklist relating to a person’s digital footprint.

As promised, this week’s post lists a further 7 areas to consider, namely:
  1. Inventory of all electronic devices (eg smart phones, tablet, laptops, computers, reading devices, watches, fitness bands, headphones, dvds, hard drives, USB sticks, digital cameras etc)
  2. Review all apps on smart phones and tablets
  3. Digital/virtual life games (eg Second Life, Kaneva, Virtual Life, School of Dragons, Twinity etc)
  4. Online shopping (including payment gateways, buy/sell/swap services, ebay, Craiglist etc)
  5. Online interactive gaming
  6. Online gambling accounts (including Lotto, TAB, casino style games)
  7. Online memberships (including discussion groups, home delivery, associations, clubs, libraries, professional associations, hobby groups, frequent usage/loyalty/rewards programs, work or student alumni associations, dating and introduction services)
** For the trainspotters, the title of today's post is riffed from the Bee Gees song 'Stayin’ alive’.
