AIRBNB giving customer data to China?

The National PulseAirbnb’s Chief Trust Officer resigned from the vacation rental service due to concerns about the company sharing personal data with the Chinese Communist Party.

Sean Joyce, who was hired in May of 2019 with the goal of protecting users’ safety on the platform, resigned after six months at the job, citing “concerns about how the massive rental platform shares data on millions of its users with Chinese authorities,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

It seems like all of these Silicon Valley companies view information about their customers as just another commodity.
