    Personally, I am annoyed when a mobile application shows me an advertisement regarding my yesterday shopping. Indeed, my privacy is violated and I feel inconvenient about it. I hope marketers bear it in their mind that they should consider the consent of people when they want to interpret their personal data for their marketing strategies. Otherwise, their strategies will not be successful.

    This is stalking fair and square. It shouldn't make it any less of a crime just because it is a corporation doing it.
