As you surf the web today looking for deals, shady “data mining” companies are watching… and harvesting your information to create a tantalizing honey pot of data about you.
As expected, your information ends up in the hands of advertisers, but did you know that U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies are also buying this data?
Even when it should be protected by the Fourth Amendment.

The privacy and civil rights violations are staggering.
