I mean they have been using our information to sell for years. I mean hell they found a killer 3-40 years later because of a family link. The government will buy up all the information from these companies to fuel the big brother mentality.

Too many companies have absolute CRAP security. Usually the problem is the people, not the software, but who knows with this one.
