Picture it. You're cozy in bed, reading a book with your cat curled on top of you. Your eyes grow heavy, it's time to turn the lights off and go to sleep. Except, if you turn over to flip the light switch you'll disturb your sleeping kitty. That can't happen! Now picture your bedside lamp plugged into a smart outlet operated through Alexa or Google Assistant. All you have to do is say, "Hey Alexa, turn the light off," and fade into sweet dreams with your kitty in place. How did we ever survive before technology?

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.
