    Off-putting ? Really ?

    “…Grassley worried that the bill’s current language might require companies to get consent from users every time they enter into a new agreement with a third-party advertiser that plans to use location data. That could lead to an off-putting flood of consent request notifications.”

    So I guess what Sen. Grassley suggests is that YOUR location data should be bought and sold at will for YOUR CONVENIENCE ?

    Thanks, anyway, Sen. Grassley, but we’d like to hang on to that one last little thread of privacy, even if it seems of so little importance to you.
