@yogthos hilarious that vice gives you a “don’t sell my data” button that prompts you to opt out of selling your data to advertisers

@garbados @yogthos apparently this is a new legal requirement, yay regulation wins

@jplebreton No it's not! Data protection regulations require data collection to be done witg opt-in. I never heard about an opt-out-based one, and it wouldn't make sense. Either way, that opt-out bullshit is simply illegal in European Union…

@garbados @yogthos

You can thank Europe for that.... And corporate USA ignoring the agreements about user data made 20 years ago.
