dc.description.abstract Currently, users disregard the low level of privacy protection and allow excessive data gath-ering by dominant online platforms. In return, they receive personalised social-media ser-vices from such companies. However, the fault is not entirely with consumers. This article aims to identify the circumstances that support excessive data gathering and argues that gatekeepers both exploit several heuristics that lead to cognitive biases and take advantage of the asymmetries of power and information confronting consumers. This article high-lights the shift from neoclassical to behavioural economics and claims that the latter offers a convincing account of the situation consumers face in digital markets. By framing the problem as the exploitation of users' behaviours, remedies can be formulated for the prob-lem in question. (c) 2022 Beata Maihaniemi. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
