its the data that allows companies that rent your screen space for advertising to make sure they're getting value for money.

more like "conned into thinking they are getting better value" - I've never seen advertising fed through these data gathering advertising 'giants' particularly more relevant than the anonymous kind.

I think the claim is as spurious as much of advertising is outrageous claims on the flimsiest of evidence.
