Of course they wont, and the rightfully aggrieved will have little to no recourse.

They’re going to fine the company some small sum of money and you’ll get your “claim” of some measly small amount that won’t even add up to the irreversible damage that they occurred. “Apologies” will be made, their name will be stained for a few years, they’ll rebrand, and a few decades later everyone forgets. Companies have no incentive to stop selling peoples data other than bad PR for a while and the loss of a little less money than what they made from the data. Is there really anyway of remedying this?

Hey now, I was part of a massive lawsuit with Google that I didn't even know about and I'll have you know I got paid an entire dollar and some change. You should see the investments I've made since then, almost got a free coffee off it.

When will the consequences of a crime against hardworking people ever be worse than the benefits gained? That should be the standard of punishment for all corporations , directors and decision makers.

They’ll get a $14 check in 2 years though maybe!
