Under one scenario a third party ends up with your information. Under the other they don't. I, for the life of me, can't see where there is a hair to split. Yahoo, Microsoft, Apple, Google and even the much beloved RIM are all collecting information about you on the Internet.
Well we will agree to disagree. I do not grant Google -- or any of the firms that you mention -- ready access to information about me. So be it -- you are willing to let them have it, while I resist as best I can.
