 I had based it on this:

  • I set a series link for a documentary series about a very painful and private part of my life 

I apologise for the assumption.

I have googled stuff on my own health worries, then received ads on Facebook about them

My last post on this and I am done:

 

You should look at the "privacy & security" section on Facebook.

I cleared these.

 

Inspired by this, I oozed

Since the last time I cleared it, facebook adding 397 apps & websites that they use to get data on me.

 

Facebook also think home buying is a big interest (and no, I don't watch any of those daytime programmes about buying houses or renovating houses so they didn't get that from sky. Sorry),  wine, beer (I don't drink alcohol) and various other things

 

You can also "download your information " from Facebook in this section.

It may not surprise you to learn that I have Facebook as locked down as it is possible to. 

There's definitely nothing productive going to come from carrying this on, so g'night and see ya.

It is clear from your points that Sky doesn't believe in privacy, I've confirmed them snooping on DNS, scanning the LAN, etc... to obtain as much information as possible about their customers for data harvesting purposes and profit...

Sky uses Qualtrics XM and Adobe platforms for marketing, mass data gathering and profiling purposes. 😉
