You may not be paying for it, but...

from here (source image)

The popular saying that "If you're not paying for it, you are the product" implies that you can be bought and sold and owned. For most of us it's probably fair to say that no one actually buys, sells, or owns us. We are not property. And those sites that we are supposedly not paying for? We are giving them something of value - information.
