How about the other way around, when I use software (let's say - some popular IDE) that is sold in the millions, and the vendor is too cheap to invest in proper QA and automated tests?

Then, *every* *single* new minor version has some regression in it, and the vendor will not even look at a bug report that doesn't contain a whole bunch of logs and data that we cannot legally release to them.

Also, in many cases a company wants to protect their users' personal information. Legality and regulations aside, this is the ETHICAL thing to. Wouldn't *you* be happy to know that your PII is treated with respect and that access to it is shared with the minimum number of people?

Sure, it's frustrating to the vendor, and to the developers, and to me personally when I'm on the side that needs to fix bugs with limited information - but it is a fair price to pay for having an ecosystem that respects people's information and privacy.
