Privacy statement is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical utf8 literature from , making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a utf8 professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure utf8 words, consectetur, from a privacy statement passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. privacy statement comes from sections of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of privacy statement, “privacy statement dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
