FTC Seeks Public Comment on Sears Holdings Management Corporation Petition to Reopen and Modify Commission Order Concerning Online Browsing Tracking
As a member of the public, I do not want, think, or feel any corporate entity should be allowed to collect, track, store, sell, or in any way distribute, for direct or consequential gain, the personal information of any kind of any citizen of the United States. Furthermore, any personal information of any citizen of the United States possessed by any corporate entity must be safeguarded, and secured to prevent unauthorized access by any other entity under the mandatory penalty of severe fines and imprisonment. Any occurrence of such unauthorized access, no matter the severity, must be reported to all citizens possibly affected, as well as law enforcement, without delay for any reason. The current laws permitting the collection, tracking, storage, selling of the personal information of United States citizens are NO WAY in the "public interest." Do I need to mention the Equifax debacle? Why do corporations have the right to protect information they designate as secret or proprietary? Why do U.S. citizens have to lay themselves bare for almost any modern necessity? When will U.S. lawmakers start looking out for the interests U.S. citizens, instead of "special interests." The public is catching on, its time the lawmakers do the same. Please STOP the corporate consumption of the U.S. and its citizens!
