Scratch the surface and follow the money and you just may find that some of the Tech firms are now sponsors & contributors to The National Center For
Missing & Exploited Children. Not much different from lobbyists who contribute to political campaigns and the reason for the 180 degree turn about on
information allowed on a data base or computer.
If privacy matters to parents, and it should, they should use great care in NOT allowing information into a computer hard drive. The facts are that in
the real world most firms want the information to enrich themselves. Just a few weeks ago at a Los Angeles festival a group of very sketchy
individuals were offering FREE child ID kits if you would fill out an information card. They turned out to be for selling cell phones and wireless
service. The FREE ID kit from the very large insurance firm will almost guarantee you a sales call or email. The ID kit from some of the smaller
insurance firms or insurance brokers will get you a knock on your door.
Of course, the worst fear is your child's personal information surfacing on the internet. A one time occurrence of an arrest and conviction for child
porn is one time too many considering the sacred position this man was in. How should any parent feel about a child predictor having such close
contact with their children?
My children and grandchildren will not participate in data collections and thus will not have the problems and invasion of privacy issues associated
with these firms doing such good deeds for the community.
