Admittedly, I do use Chrome, so naturally Google Search, but I nonetheless agree that Google knows far too much about us all. That's partly why I don't put too much through Gmail/calendar/all that jazz. I should probably give DuckDuckGo a try though. For now, and I'm sure this is the same for much of the population, I'm programmed to automatically go to Google.
Let's just be clear.. Google is not tracking "you", they're tracking a completely anonymized id that is consistent, and this has absolutely zero influence over your "privacy". Privacy does matter and if Google were responsible for ACTUALLY breaching your privacy or anyone else's there'd be hell to pay, but the reality is they are probably more careful than anyone to protect their users. Your activity is tracked by every single site on the internet, not just by Google. Do you really trust the alternatives more?
Not exactly. Lee Credit Express does provide auto financing through its own finance company. This allows us to finance customers who can't get an auto loan from a traditional lender because of bad credit, which is what a 'buy here pay here' dealer does. But that is where the similarities end. Customers don't have to make payments at our dealerships, they simply mail their payments to the finance company. And unlike most Maine 'buy here pay here' dealers, we have newer cars and service contracts that protect your investment. We consider it 'buy here pay here' done right.
