Why just outgoing mail?
"We will never rent, sell or share information that personally
identifies you for marketing purposes without your express permission."
This suggests that they can simply anonymize data which is to be rent,
sold or shared. This is actually what you'd want for aggregate
Actually, what is the difference between "personally identifies" and just
"identifies" ? Does this mean that they may release information which can
be used to deduce your identity and personal information? e.g. "Out of
Linux magazine editors with accounts, all of those who burn all GIFs and
run elitist mailing lists like to attend nudist clambakes".
