Information on you

“The Secret Trust Scores Companies Use to Judge Us All,” The Wall Street Journal, April 6, 2019.  How companies know you’re not a robot.

The companies use a service that collects a bunch of information about you to determine a score.  Based on that score, the online transaction is allowed to proceed or not.

But can you know what your score is?  No.  That information about you is not your information, even under the GDPR.
