In reply to Kris Holt
Vendor window dressing designed to make consumers warm and fuzzy.

At the end of the day the relationship is simple. When the government says jump these vendors will, without exception, ask how high. Should the information leak to the public hey may put up a token fight to at least give the appearance that they care, but much of it is done behind closed doors and never made public.

If you don't want information to be made available to Big Brother - at least not easily - you have one and only one choice: keep that information on paper, or if you must, on a computer not connected to your network. Once it's in a vendor's hands, any expectation of privacy is just plain silly.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
