Where the rubber meets the road...

Move over NSA:

The World Privacy Forum uncovered these lists, along with several others, while investigating how data brokers collect and sell consumer information. Marketers buy this data so they can target shoppers based on everything from their income to clothing size.

Other lists the nonprofit found included the home addresses of police officers, a mailing list for domestic violence shelters (which are typically kept secret by law) and a list of people with addictive behaviors towards drug and alcohol.

The mere existence of these lists highlights the need for increased government regulations, said World Privacy Forum executive director Pam Dixon.
