Does Amazon deserve my statistics?

Does Amazon deserve my statistics? I knew this was coming but I was hoping that it would all turn out for the better and Amazon would come to their senses. So the question is, are Wish Lists worth my data? Will ownership of my spending habits, phone number, address, credit card, browsing habits, and email address become the new price for using the Internet as a consumer?

Hey, great link over there (or should I say great article?). Despite the article being damn right about the privacy invasion issues, you'll see that it won't affect customers at all. They'll just keep bying from Amazon, no matter what (don't ask me why).

Not necessarily.

I, personally, think that's an *excellent* privacy policy page. I may not agree with the policy itself, but the disclosure is quite well done, pull no punches, and doesn't gloss too far over things in the name of marketing.
