Has Flickr / Yahoo sold your Photos for AI Facial Recognition?

The New York Times

"How Photos of Your Kids Are
Powering Surveillance Technology
Millions of Flickr images were sucked into
a database called MegaFace. Now some
of those faces may have the ability to sue."

Lesson from this and many similar stories: don't put personal photos in Flickr, or any other social media websites !

Life is too short for cheap film

Flickr is now no longer being controlled by Yahoo. I wonder if the current owners have a stronger privacy policy? Being a Flickr user, I should find out.

They'd have a hard time finding any faces to recognize on my Flickr site; I don't shoot people!
Nikon S2, S3, F, F2, F3, FM2, FA, N90S, D80, D7000, D750, Sony a6000, Canon IIf, Leica CL, Tower type 3, Zorki 4, Vito B, Perkeo II, Rollei 35....

I’m not sure how photos of recognized people I have are in jeopardy.
Or people I don’t know.
I have stopped dumping my kids photos with every new camera, lens I have long time ago.
