Details about young children are available for sale on the internet. Teens, Active Military, Veterans, and Police officers home addresses are for sale on the internet for less than 10 cents each.

Information is available about all of us.
Many of the familiar companies that we rely on daily are quietly exposing and selling our personal information on the open market. Less obvious operators like credit card processors and website trackers outright steal our information for profit.
While some customers agree to sharing their information, few understand that it’s sold for a profit without their consent or payment. In fact, the growing numbers of ‘agreement’ contracts we feel obligated to sign are technically not valid yet treated as permission to violate our privacy and sell our identities.
While it may seem routine, even claimed as necessary in some corners. Forces within government would like to permanently legitimize the theft of our personal information. Politicians often depend on data brokers to spin public information to be elected and feed their addiction to power. In the face of these practices, many people feel helpless and at the mercy of corporations and even our government as they harvest every detail of our lives, monitor our every move and sell us out to the highest bidder.
