Can anyone here comment on why Ford is requiring so much student data for sponsorship consideration for the 2020 season? I get wanting to know # of students, ethnicity/grade/gender breakup, etc. People seem to care about these metrics WAY more than I do, and Ford wants to know where their money is going to. Fine. But some of the datapoints they are requiring are beyond excessive and downright creepy.
I should not be required to provide the home address, citizenship status, or phone number/email of under-aged students (or their parents) to a corporation. I don’t care what security they claim to have, companies are getting hacked all the time, and requiring this info is beyond concerning. Are we being payed by Ford for them to data-mine my team members and their families?
Additionally more than half my team is freshman/sophomores. They have no idea what they want to do for their career yet, much less what college they want to go to. That’s kinda why they joined the team; to figure it out. So asking what college they want/plan to attend is absurd.
Am I wrong?
