PWW - privacy issues


As in, if you value you yours, reconsider that subscription. /rant mode on
I called up to ensure that my personal info wouldn't be sold, shared, or otherwise distributed, before getting my subscription. I was assured that it would remain private.
What happened was that they placed me on the "Don't E-mail" list and sold my snail mail info. I was 1/2 a month away from getting my first issue of the magazine, when I got my first piece of trash in the mailbox. That tells me that the info was sold about the time my CC was charged. No time was wasted.
Now I appreciate that they apologised for doing it, but that strikes me as too little, too late. I've cancelled the subscription, but that doesn't put the horse back in the barn.
Something for you to be aware of before you get a subscription.
