We-Vibe sex toy lawsuit settlement (up to $10000 compensation)

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/03/14 ... mg00000002

"Under the deal, Ottawa-based Standard Innovation will pay those who bought its We-Vibe sex toy before Sept. 26, 2016, up to US$199 each. Users who controlled the vibrator via its We-Connect application will get up to US$10,000 each — although the actual amounts in both cases are likely to be much lower."

I cried out in despair." RFD user Dingus

Even our sex toys are spying on us....
To be fair though, this HAS to be more interesting than the usual mindless drivel that's being collected.

That said... YAH! I get money for doing dirty things.
I feel like a hooker.

Couldn't they have avoided this by just having had you consent to it in some long EULA (that no one ever reads but everyone clicks "Agree" on) for the app? Or are those not allowed on phone apps?

I'm sure it would have been allowed. I don't get why the company would pull something like this though surely they must have known it would create issues.

I can understand why useage was tracked, in terms of statistics, I probably wouldn't even care but they really should have had an opt-out option.
