    Here is Facebook's public policy statement - the good - the bad- the ugly:

    WHAT IS THE ISSUE?
    Facebook wants to track whether people who see ads on the social networking site end up buying those products in stores.

    WHY DOES FACEBOOK JOIN FORCES WITH DATALOGIX
    There is growing pressure from advertisers for tracking and using data about users. Hence, the two firms are getting data from about 70m US households largely drawn from loyalty cars (e.g., Air Miles) and more than 1,000 retailers including grocery and drug stores.
    Matching e-mail addresses or other identifying information associated with those cards against emails or information used to establish Facebook accounts, Datalogix can track whether people bought a product in a store after seeing an ad on Facebook

    HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF against this data snooping !!!
    Facebook users in the US are automatically included in the advertising studies. One cannot directly opt out through one's Facebook acocunt!
    THERE IS ONE WAY. To opt-out of everything (including the Facebook comparison data) Datalogix is collecting, head to their Privacy page

    ===> https://www.datalogix.com/privacy

    Scroll down to the "Choice" heading, click the last "click here" link in the paragraph with the text:

    "If you wish to opt out of all Datalogix-enabled advertising & analytic products, click here., and fill in your information. This will opt you out of any and all data collection done by Datalogix"

    If you click on the 'click here' above, this will open some fields below that you have to fill in with your information.

    QUESTION
    Does this provide Facebook users with sufficient control over their data and transparency over how it was being used?
