Clicking "Accept" on a user agreement or "OK" to cookies is second nature these days. We don't think too much about what we're agreeing to, or how exactly our data will be used. We'd pretty much have to live as Luddites if we really didn't want to share our data. Indeed, for most of us, the collection of our data only began at a certain age when the Internet came into common use. Thankfully, we were spared the immortalization of our terrible teen years.
