Not surprising. From dealings with Dart Charge (parent: Emovis), the call centre staff are stuck to using scripted responses and when asked to step outside their comfort zone have no one to speak to, as management is just as clueless.

PIN the blame on us, says Monzo in mondo security blunder: Bank card codes stored in log files as plain text
Privacy? Watchdogs? Fines? Whatever, nerds, more people than ever are using Facebook and filling its deep coffers
Re: More people already addicted to FB are using FB more than ever???
"the people who are most avid social media users are (A) those who don't really appear to have much going on in their lives, or (B) don't have the opportunity to do much with their lives in the first place, and are using it to fill a hole."
A bit arrogant, presuming you can fit (very) roughly 3 billion social media users into two small boxes.
I hate these types of short-sighted comments. No, most people are not surprised, especially if they seek out news on sites like El Reg.
What is important is that we do not become complacent and we educate friends and family. What is important is that we have all the information in front of us, in black and white, and can make our own choices about whether we accept this privacy invasion for the small convenience it provides us.
