Privacy? What privacy?

Followup to grc.privacy

Ponemon, a privacy consultant, said he has been contacted by many
companies -- such as banks and a national supermarket chain -- asking how
they should tell consumers that they gave huge swaths of consumer data to
law enforcement.

In many cases, Ponemon said, the companies sent the information on their own
initiative in order to assist the terrorism investigation. Some firms, such
as airlines and car rental agencies, are breaking their privacy policies by
sharing data to analyze suspicious activity.
