    • On October 28, 2011, by PaulSiraisi - Quoting Consumers Union Advocacy's suggestion for a letter to your congressperson: I'm not alone. A recent national survey by Consumers Union, the nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports, found that 82 percent of respondents were concerned about companies selling or sharing their information without permission. I think the following basic privacy rights are reasonable: * When a company is just selling my information to anyone who will pay for it, I should have the right to have that report deleted. * If it is incorrect, I should be able to fix it. * And I should not have to pay to find out what's in my own record with that company. As online databases get more sophisticated, and companies begin to aggregate information about me from both government and business sources, I deserve to have a say in what is being said and shared about me and my family. THIS BILL DOES NOT ADDRESS THE ABOVE.
