Yep, faking data works pretty well - proving that they don't actually need that data and shouldn't ask for it in the first place.

At the very least they should be honest enough to prominently admit that these data are used to pay for their expenses, and their offer is therefore not actually free. Given that information - if it were given - I could make an informed decision on whether their offer is worth sharing my data.

Instead these companies prefer hiding their true intent under oodles of legalize that, upon close inspection, contain vague hints of the 'possibility' of needing to pass your data to certain third parties under certain unspecified circumstances. Dead | X| Of course, no guarantee is made as to how these 'third parties' treat your data afterwards. Thumbs Down | :thumbsdown:

As long as they're not honest about that, I don't expect them to be honest on anything else, and will expect the worst. As a result, my (uninformed) decision is to not take the risk.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
