How does it work there? It would seem an obvious point of comparison.

Too bad we’ve started to realise it too late. Now all of these businesses are using their clients information as freely as they want.

Unless you are non-existent online, your information is the world’s information. Unfortunately our world serves the bottom dollar, which is what our information then serves. If only we could have the same kind of transparency within businesses and governments for the people to have the same access to information on those entities as they have on the people. If privacy is going away, let’s make it go away for institutions as well as the rest of humanity.

Sounds like banks want to have it both ways.
