Our interpretation:

These are scary times. It's impossible to assess who is collecting our data, both harmless and critical. This documentary shows us that there is no such thing as innocent data anymore. Every bit adds to the avatar that is being created in our image to better control, predict and adjust our behaviours. Data-mining is everywhere around us, not just in the applications that aks you to agree to some illegible terms of service beforehand.
