    Personal information?!

    Post by Guest on Wed Aug 31, 2011 5:42 pm

    We recently purchased and installed a ceiling fan for our kitchen. The product registration process involved answering over 25 specific personal questions such as.... my Date of Birth AND that of my spouse (mm/dd/yr); the Gender AND Age of any Children + Adults living in the same household; Annual family income; Which credit cards do we use regularly - Amex, Mastercard or Visa, Dept. store or Oil co; What are our future plans - marriage/starting a family, buying a house/car/computer etc; Choose (from a very long list) what hobbies + interests would describe our lifestyle etc. etc. etc. Obviously they are trying to gather as much personal information as possible to do whatever they choose with it.... perhaps even sell to a 3rd party. In any case I absolutely refuse to answer these questions as IMO they have NOTHING to do with the purchase of a "Ceiling Fan" and further, I consider it an invasion of my personal privacy! What are these people thinking? Aaarrgh

    Oh Gosh Dilannie, I can't imagine answering questions like that
    on a registration form for a household item.
    I certainly would not give all that personal information and you did the right thing by not doing so.
    Some warranties now aren't worth the paper they are written on.
