In terms of privacy, Canadians are being #digitalholdupprivacystyle by Aeroplan in which it demands all of you information relating to your transactional data from your affiliated credit card.
One may ask, this is only nothing as Aereoplan and banks such as: CIBC, TD Canada Trust, American Express would need the consumers explicit permission and there would be an opt out option.
But NO, the email from Aeroplan, was Aeroplan is taking this information relating to transactional data from your affiliated credit card and there is no opt out. By the way, there is nothing you can do, except leave the program.
Amazing how banks who say, trust use with your personally identifiable information, are just giving your personally identifiable information away without seeking the consumers explicit permission.
More interesting, is the Canadian Bankers Association, why would they allow for such an insane set up by its members.
A complete privacy FAIL!
