Don't they sell your blocking data?

They claim to only sell your data if you opt-in to something called "GhostRank." [1]. It's proprietary software so there's no way to actually confirm that though.

There's really no reason for privacy conscious individuals to use Ghostery when uBlock Origin can do the exact same thing.

In addition to asking you a series of invasive questions when you uninstall — which, I suspect means they sell that data once you're no longer using the software.
