My bank just sent an email saying, "Read our annual consumer privacy notice."

Do you actually read such things? Does anyone actually read such things? I never have and never will.

    I don't. They are required to do so, I would imagine.

    Um... no.  Waste of my time.  They're going to do whatever they want despite what they may say.   They just issue an amendment and call it legal.

    I pretty much don't read any of those privacy statements.

    The most frequently told lie online is "i have read and understood the terms and conditions". You're required to tick that box to proceed. This post was edited by Slartibartfast at September 14, 2022 6:34 PM MDT

    I'll break it down for you. 

    We value your privacy and all that, but we will collect and probably sell any and all your personal information for the right price. You can opt out of certain aspects by emailing us no fewer than 10 times, but it really won't make a difference. 

    Good luck and thanks for letting us borrow your money.
