Your upcoming workshop "the practice of aggregating information about consumers..." is important and timely. Collecting any information about citizens is dangerous and policing such efforts should not be left to those self serving,suspect and probably venal private collectors of such data.
Indeed collecting such information should be denied to everyone, including the government. In my mind it is a dangerous invasion of our privacy and will lead to all sorts of mischief.
I urge your Commission to do everything possible to deny or, at the minimum, to substantially limit the ability of any private and/or commercial organization to gather and use any information that concerns the individual. Any gathered information should not be used by anyone without the individuals express consent before its use! Opt In , not opt OUT.
