My point is your data is collected on a daily basis by all sorts of organisations, the original point about Google+ collecting data is kind of mute. As far as my experience of the world, I have lived in several countries around the world, including the USA and the spending patterns of people is the same world over, they need food, they buy food etc etc. As far as where I forgot to list every nation in the world but just named 2 parts of it well I do apologise if you were offended but just because it is a law in your state does not mean that organisations outside your state are not collecting and using data about you for something.
As far as whether you want Google or not if it wasn't Google it would be some other organisation.
As far as my experience !=world, im sorry I thought this was about expressing an informed opinion, no it does not cover every human being on the planet in every nation but as I stated, in my opinion.
