Aren't compelled to read privacy policies and service agreements? Then read Weapons of Math Destruction instead. It's far more readable and just as relevant. O'Neil highlights the business practices that circumvent federal regulations and protections via data science. I think the new California Consumer Privacy Act, for instance, provides privacy safeguards, but O'Neil's solutions are implementable with or without legislation.
What I like most about WMD is that O'Neil gives the strong and weak methods for the mathematical/statistical models behind their algorithms.
