Unroll.me sold your data to Uber
'Uber devoted teams to so-called competitive intelligence, purchasing data from Slice Intelligence, which collected customers' emailed Lyft receipts via Unroll.me and sold the data to Uber'.

Also: 'Unroll.me allegedly "kept a copy of every single email that you sent or received" in "poorly secured S3 buckets"': https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14180463

Unroll.me CEO: 'felt bad “to see that some of our users were upset to learn about how we monetise our free service”.'
