Amazon Cloud Cam Security Camera

"Hey Alexa, show me the guy breaking into my house." According to the reviews on this HD cloud-based video camera from Amazon, that's exactly what happens when you buy this security camera. It comes with 24/7 video, motion detection, night vision, alerts to your phone, and two-way audio so you can yell at that guy breaking into your house if you want. The cloud-based video storage is only free for 24 hours. If you want to see video after that, you'll need to pony up for a cloud cam subscription that runs $6.99 for the low end and $19.99 for the high end.

Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons
Yes
Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.
