Nintendo Switch

Super Mario. The Legend of Zelda. Need we say more? Two of the greatest video game superstars of all time live here on the Nintendo Switch — a handy little console that lets you play at home on your TV or toss it in your bag to play anywhere. Good guy Nintendo also puts a lot of emphasis on easy-to-use parental controls. Dear Santa, we've been really good this year.

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.
