Privacy impact more about reputation than about fines, survey finds

A survey of more than 3,000 consumers conducted by customer data platform provider Zeotap serves as a call to action to brands to lead with privacy, or suffer consumer distrust and desertion. Consumers know their data is worth a lot and 62% are prepared to buy from brands who guarantee not to share their personal information. Plus, 58% say they would recommend those brands to friends and family. So, while brands fear fines from regulation, Zeotap says the bigger cost is the loss of consumer loyalty.
