Anyone else get the Netflix survey email yesterday ?

I started going through it, asked the usual things such as age, sex, number of people in the household who view Netflix, how many were kids, how many of those kids were under 12, their sex, the exact ages of those under 12, their names, and..... WHOA.

I stopped there.

Why the hell do they want my kids specific names/ages/sex ? 

I understand they want a better understanding of how their service is being used, but there is no way I'm giving them specifics. Why couldn't they ask "number of children between 0-5" or similar - and to me, there is no reason for them to know the kids names at all (except maybe to personalize the survey).

They had the usual disclaimer that it was only for the survey and no 3rd party will have access etc etc.....  but no thanks, everyone has that disclaimer, yet the details seem to get out these days, one way or another.

Netflix provide a great service, but I think they need to review their survey policy......

Sorry - obvious dumb question - were you sure it was actually from Netflix?

Should have just filled it out with names like:
Billy, Bob, Glenda, Burtha, Cletus, Dale.
Say you have like 12 children all 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12.
Look like a busy boy!

Nope, no options that I could see.
