My Question or Issue
I am premium account member. Spotify states that premium accounts are "free of advertisements". But in 2020 Spotify started to insert ads before I can start any podcast. Support wrote, this was on purpose. Spotify would insert ads before podcasts. This is fraud. Clearly fraudulent. Spotify cannot sell "premium accounts" as "Advert-free" and then sell my user-data to place ads. Moreover this "Streaming Ad Insertion" violates my consumer rights. Never ever have I allowed Spotify to sell my data or to use my preferences to insert ads to my p r e m i u m account.
