Not O2 thankfully(yet) however I would be far from impressed should this happen to me. Nothing is "anonymous" data.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong. So Ive been told wink

And there's a total of 26 trackers blocked in those 3 links.....pcpro being the winner with a massive 15 Smiley Surprised Now here's an example of what was blocked on pcpro link :

 

[Quote]Kontera’s patented technology performs real-time semantic analysis of content and other information to dynamically hyper-link the terms that most accurately represent and predict user-intent and engagement.[Unquote]

 

Now what's all that garbage about ????????

 

I'm just making the point that it's very difficult not to have your personal data displayed to whoever wants to pay for it.

That's a mouthful grin

However the tracker details are somewhat impersonal. Yes they know what you like but they have no clue who you are further than an IP address, is version, browser version and depending on the quality maybe your town.

I'm sure you're right, no one in this game is bothered about the legality.
I've previously discovered one of our biggest "ethical" retailers selling my email address. You just can't trust any of them.
