16 CFR Part 313 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Amendment; FTC Project No. R411016
Personal information should be kept private under all circumstances. Between the two parties within any transaction. To allow the "Company" to use /share customers private information in ANY form such as, to make increased profits by selling such information etc. should be unlawful. It is a matter of Fair trade. The "customer" in good faith ( trust the company ) buys a product or service from the "Company" and such transaction and ALL "customers" information should remain private and the "Company" having no right ( in fact against the law) to share and or sell such "customers" information. As such violates the trust the customer placed in the "company" when making the purchase, to keep the transaction by and between the two parties. Without concern of their private information being sold such as email address and other private information. Bottom line: Personal information is just that , Personal and such belongs to the person and should remain so , NOT allowing the company by means of any transaction of trade, to then "own" your personal information , meaning having rights to personal information to then sell and or share in any fashion. Any more than say a movie maker or a song writer law demands copy rights on their property so it is with personal information, as such is in deed personal " intellectual" private property and no one should be allowed to have "rights" to use or disclose such under any situation. Especially within a purchase agreement contract and or a store receipt and or online purchases etc. That transfers such "rights" by no less than trickery / deception "slick willy" which lacks all integrity of the meaning of "Fair Trade"
