@purism this is so very important for people to know and understand. Subscription streaming services are another prime (no pun intended) example. You may be paying for them, but they are still tracking your every interaction. And some of them are still serving ads anyway.

@purism Thank you for this article! The next time someone uses the argument "you pay with money or you pay with data", I'm sending them this article.
