Time to get in shape? Got a couple thousand dollars to spend? This stationary bike--complete with touch screen, speakers, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, camera, and microphone--is here to make you sweat. Hop on the bike, fire up the subscription-based classes and trainers in the large display on the handlebars and get spinning. This bike tracks your progress, has trainers to motivate you, and lets you ride your bike virtually all over the world. Perhaps that $39 per month membership will keep this from becoming an expensive towel rack.

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.
