Does the fact that some companies can do harmful things (like Cambridge Analytica) with your information make it morally obligatory for you to not share your information, or for the companies themselves to not do harmful things. For example, say bullets became sentient creatures by some sheer stroke of magic. They could choose to enter the clip of a gun or not. This clip would give them comfort, and the ability to more easily communicate with other bullets. They do not know whether the gun will be fired or not (in fact most of the bullets do not know what a gun is or if one is even nearby). Is it the moral responsibility of the bullets to not get into the comfort of the clip, or of the hand (corporation) to not pull the trigger on the gun while using these bullets.
