While researching about somebody else and being intrigued as to the quantity of data that I was finding, I decided to throw my army number and surname into Google Search. Now, I've been quite careful over the years to avoid leaving my personal details on the web. Even on ARRSE, I've been careful - dropping sufficient hints that those who know me will be able to confirm my identity, but not enough that a stranger can trace me. So I expected the search to come up with a strange electrical component and thousands of unfamiliar people. Not so. A page of results in and there's my name and number. A statement of "Army" and a date range - that just happens to be my joining date and the date of my VRSM - in the summary. On opening the link, there are some random people who have the same name but no mention of "Army", my number or the dates. The page belongs to webmii. I've thrashed my brains and can't think how they've made the connection because I've never (as far as I'm aware) ever given all of that information in a linkable format. And I've never given permission for the bits that I have given to be passed to third parties - I'm always careful to tick or untick that box. Try it yourself and see whether the Google summary shows details that you wouldn't expect to appear. I suppose it's nice that webmii don't put that information on the linked page, but scary that it appears in the Google summary.
