Great that it gives you phone numbers to contact companies. I try to use it as much as possible especially if there are different products to choose from. This is really a great idea.

Seems to work well. Seems to find relevant info quickly and accurately. The corporate ownership tree is hard to scan and understand, but the info is there.

Fantastic product. Not fact checked that I know of, so some trust involved on which lists you follow (or fact check them randomly to keep them honest) but still so great to feel like you have some control over companies that choose to get involved in politics
