Are personal data yours?

It's shocking that some companies would own a lot of data related to your private life and you would have no right about how these data are handled, used, transmitted to somebody else.

Each one should have the legal right to ask those companies to erase his/her personal data. Whatever social media gurus say, privacy does still exist.
