Why is it so hard for companies to make these things opt-IN?

It isn't hard at all but it's what companies prefer because most people don't bother to opt-out. It's the same reason why most companies like to do mail-in rebates instead of a discount at the register – because most people don't bother to mail in the rebate forms.

I still say this was one of the reasons Circuit City went under. They were the mail-in rebates king.
If I see something with a mail-in rebate, I usually keep looking elsewhere.

“because geolocation data are sensitive personal data.” According to the CBP, TomTom could use the location data to deduce where someone supposedly lives.
..or TomTom can just lock at your ‘Take me Home” location entry instead of triangulating and subtracting, then adding locations to deduce where you live. Duh!
