If you worry that internet companies are accessing your personal information and sharing it with advertisers and others, sometimes without your permission, you need to hear this. Your privacy may be at risk in a way you never imagined.

You've heard about your privacy being invaded on webcams, where hackers can watch you at your most vulnerable moments. You've heard about smart TVs watching you, too. You've heard about websites and internet giants like Microsoft sharing your personal information with advertisers.

Bonus: Listen to Kim Komando talk about smart TVs spying on you.

But you've probably never thought that your privacy is at risk because of the music, news and podcasts you listen to. Do you remember Bose, the company that makes high-end stereos?

As it turns out, Bose is collecting massive amounts of information about you. Worse, they're sharing it with companies that have almost no limits on who they'll share your personal information with.

Think about what your music and news choices say about you. Do you listen to religious and political content that some people might find offensive? Do you listen to music and talk shows that could reveal private information about you that you'd rather not share with companies and people you don't know?
