Recently, when I log in to FT/AS I am asked to give consent for them to share info with a huge, long list of advertising type 'partners'.

It seems I can choose to opt out - but then the same page appears again.

So I guess no opt out....they can share any info they have with.....just about everybody?

Is that so?

I haven't seen anything like this. On Adobe Stock (contributor interface) I just went to look at Manage My Adobe ID (top right drop down) to see what privacy settings were there. There are some for how they may contact me - mail, phone email - and what newsletters/Adobe Create I want.

If there were some type of privacy settings, that is where I'd expect to see them. Perhaps this is rolling out over time and just hasn't reached all of us yet?

Did you get any email about this head of seeing the options? An explanation of what was changing would be nice.

In general I expect to opt out of sharing any information with anyone - in the US there are no privacy laws to speak of; you can't get back anything you've shared but no longer want to; and anyone who wants information is going to be selling to someone or using it to sell me something (which is already a massive nuisance, so why make it worse). This isn't just regarding Adobe, but anyone who wants to gather and keep information.

You have a choice to opt out of all giving the impression you have opted out of all, but the indirect ones you have to do individually.
On just one of those above (Dotomi) there are 81 companies to opt out of.

and if you clear your cookies you are automatically opted in again, because they put an opt out cookie on your browser.

Wow! That's a lot of stuff (and no easy way to just opt out of all advertising options).

I expect you're right that it's not shown to US users. I'm assuming that's all pertinent to the US as well though, but we don't get to see any of it or opt out.

Thanks for clarifying

Clear your cookies after you leave an adobe site and you should be ok :) I won't be visiting very often.

I would think that an Ad blocker would solve many issues like this.  :)

Yes, obj owl that is the HUGE list! NO prior warning/explanatio via email. Yes, could be the EU data protection thing... :(
I opt out but the list...keeps returning.
Seems completely OTT and while an ad blocker will catch some/most I still don't really all these guys getting my data. Will continue to opt out.
