Yoh! WTF? So Bell Canada says that you can opt out of this, but here’s the kicker – they will not stop collecting your data; they just won’t mine it so as to send you targeted advertising.
Is that MY data? Based on MY usage? Am I paying for the use of the service? Then in my mind, Bell Canada should be giving me a cut their profit every time I use one of those ads and buy something. No?
It is after all MY DATA!
