If a company provides a free online service, would you rather it show you adverts or sell your user data to third-party companies?

Would rather deal with the ads.
The problem is with in your face adverts on websites, these pop-up ads and videos that play automatically.
Selling user data to a third-party is a real douche move from companies that does that and respect is immediately lost for those

Neither!

Got a call from an ADT marketer this morning, whom I have never contacted in my life. Would really love to know where they got my details.

Ads. Google can make it work showing ads that are not in the way or overly intrusive.

Neither. Build an actual business that sells the user something rather than selling the user

NEITHER! Cannot vote on your poll because you failed to allow for this as an option

I would rather pay for the services if I want it.
