Okay so what about those affiliated parties? Will they sell or share my PII with them just because I do business with this guy? (That kind of takes the warm fuzzies away from the promise not to contact me again.) Also, can’t those affiliated parties then sell my PII to some one else?
If any of my info is worth money – then dammit I am entitled to a cut of the spoils. I have bills to pay.
Why aren’t we able to control the sale of our own PII again? Oh that’s right. We haven’t really pushed for putting the control of PII in the hands of the consumer. If we have then please leave a link in the comments. *crosses fingers*
Now, imagine if you could block advertising based on your preference not to support a particular company or brand? Also imagine if you could demand more money for your PII because of being an influencer (online or off).
It’s not always easy to share a few thoughts on something as yawn worthy as Privacy Policies. It’s a subject that I wish more people would wake up to and strive to be better educated before they click “submit”.
Have you read any Privacy Policies lately that made you scratch your head a little? Leave a story and a link in the comments.
