Google Following Your Offline Credit Card Spending To Tell Advertisers

“Put A and B together, and suddenly you have a much clearer picture to share with advertisers: Why yes, John Smith did see four ads for your coffee drink online yesterday, before spending exactly what one of those drinks costs at a location of yours near his office. Congratulations, your ads work; spend more money advertising with us now, please.”

So basically if you have Google’s location tracking enabled on your phone, they’re selling that information to their advertisers. Not creepy at all 🙄
