Am I understanding this right...

Is FB basically saying that it does indeed collect lots of browsing data across multiple websites outside of Facebook. That this data is then used to increase or decrease scores (e.g. gender, political affiliation etc.) and then discarded leaving just the new scores?

This could explain their excuse, but makes the issue worse as there is no data to correct or remove only my personal scorecard which doesn't really enable "corrections" just resets.

Am I off track? it is a Friday afternoon after all.
