they watch and when they watch it, as they utilise that data to learn more
about their viewers. Viewers preferences are tracked by analyzing the duration,
location, content preferences, and more.

privacy of the users to be preserved. If the data is breached, the rights
rendered under various laws will be violated leading to repercussions.
