Policy dishonestly states: "We are committed to: Describing how your information may be used or shared in this Privacy Policy." The policy allows browser fingerprinting, which enables persistent user tracking even when users try to stay pseudonymous. It's not directly or explicitly mentioned and yet the policy claims to be maximally informative.
