I got an email saying that there was a notice for me. In said notice I saw this chart placed at the bottom. I see that there are things that Discover will share to others about me. I also see that there is a small number of items I can opt out of by calling the number 1-800-225-5202. I just called that number and it get some robot asking me what number I want to dial, wtf?

I am already on Discover’s website, why can I not just uncheck a box? They really want to make it hard for people to opt-out of sharing valuable personal information.
