We talk a lot about organizations that sell our personally identifiable , but we should consider discussing those that purchase our information...

- Specifically, who are they?
- What can be done to productively pressure them to stop?

Purposely not asking “what do they use it for?” because it legitimizes their actions.

@theprivacyfoundation The biggest problem is that it is too hard to point. Sure, the obvious commercials will be seen when searching for shoes, holiday travels, etc... The biggest problem imho is the fact people search for sencetive info to find out more about sick relatives, debts, etc...

This is being sold.

@theprivacyfoundation I think the best thing would be to never give our #data to the sellers, so nobody would be able to buy it.
