There certainly are ethical concerns about this sort of stuff, and it is something that we debate heatedly on a regular basis - how to utilize our intimate knowledge of our users' habits to make $$, yet protect their privacy, etc. Right now, data encryption is a big issue for us - end-point vs. end-to-end encryption. Then there is removal of information that can be tracked back to a specific individual. These are not simple issues, and many of us are rightly concerned about the impact of this stuff if we don't do it correctly. Unfortunately, it is NOT a black&white scenario, but rather one of (to paraphrase a popular novel of the day) 50 shades of gray...Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
