The real purpose of leading the purchaser on-line is to collect your personal information then start spamming your email.
The free online offers (actually not true as you pay for shipping and handling) real purpose is to collect your name, email, address and phone number. Similar to Facebook.
Q3. How is your personally identifiable information used by Disney?
A3. Your personally identifiable information, including your email address, may be used by us for operational, promotional and other purposes, including to:
• Process your order;
• Send you promotional information about us and advise you of merchandise or product offerings as well as other special offers including online newsletters and offers;
• Inform you of our surveys, contests and/or sweepstakes that may be of interest; and
• Notify you of other developments from us and send you offers from third parties that may be of interest.
The bottom line consumers are paying top dollar for inferior quality compressed mp3 content which they dictate playback devices with no ability to reload it if your hard disk gets corrupted. Then they share all your personal information and start spamming you. Remember after they collect the information which you voluntarily gave.
Disney and their partner third party companies are in control, not you.
They will data mine this and combine other data from other sources. I even hear Disney is using facial recognition software at their parks to identify you!
I forgot, all i wanted to do was watch a damn movie!Edited by HiFiFun - 9/26/12 at 3:53am
