> Cisco has subsequently altered the wording in question, which now says that "usage" information is only associated with a randomly-generated ID number controlled by the device owner.

As documented by the AOL search data leak, just because some historical data is only organized by a random id, doesn't mean you can't derive from it who the user is.

For example, if I have unusual working hours, they can match that to my Internet activity. Or if they know which email provider I use, they can look for connections to that in the data.
