Danger! 3rd Party Data Sharing Threatens Little Red Riding Hood!

We may share your personal information …
In the war over our privacy rights, many people fail to remember that companies are not blindfolded superficial entities. They can be hundreds, thousands, to tens of thousands people deep.

Nothing about our privacy is simple, and company policies are anything but user friendly. Intended to explain the companies’ responsibility of use and ultimately relieve them of misuse, privacy policies are akin to the danger of a wolf in sheep’s clothing – and we are Little Red Riding Hood.
