have fun with your lawsuit

so this story creeps me out a company who rents furniture who also rents computers has installed software on those computers that log keystrokes. basically they can see what your typing and what your doing and if they wanted to turn on your webcam without you knowing. so some people who had purchased a computer from them had quite the shock when a payment error caused the company to temporarily believe that they had not payed for it so they used the spyware to track them down and attempt to repossess the computer the family proved that they purchased it and sued the company for invasion of privacy.
