AI recommendations

When engaging with the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF), be mindful of the personal information you provide, especially since some of it may be obtained from third parties. If privacy is a significant concern for you, particularly if you're based in the EU/EEA, consider the implications of your data being transferred to the US. Always exercise your rights to control your personal data, such as requesting access, updates, or deletion, and opt-out of communications if you no longer wish to be contacted. Stay informed of any policy updates to ensure that your consent aligns with the latest terms.
