"A US company located in the state of Texas called Traqcloud has produced a new, cheap way to track anyone or anything using GPS satellite tracking for only $10 per month after an initial outlay of $69 for the device. Of course, Michael Hamilton, co-founder of traqcloud, states that 'it is possible for any type of tracking device to be used for the wrong reasons,' adding that his company forbids violating the privacy of others, as per their acceptable use policy.
From my point of view, (I'm a father of a 14 year old boy with Autism) does my son's privacy take second place to his security and my peace of mind? He has no sense of personal safety and will walk off anywhere with anyone at anytime: he has, in the middle of the night, tried going outside on his own (no coat, no boots in mid-winter).
TraqClouds' device may help me sleep at night.
Do I have the right to track him like this? Does this extend to tracking my 'normal' daughter? My wife? A neighbor? Where do rights to privacy end?"
