Pandora Ap Does Indeed Send User Data

In a lawsuit filed against the company, it's come to light that the Pandora Ap sends into out.  Now, they never claimed that they didn't, but now it's officially out.
It sends the user's birth date, gender, Android ID, and GPS information were all being sent to various advertising companies.  The situation here has so far only been proven to exist on Android, but the possibility obviously exists for iOS as well.
As of this writing, Pandora has yet to respond.
For the record, I'm a Pandora user and I doubt this will affect my usage.  However, I thought you dear readers should be aware of it.
