Something the Government will *not* be bragging about

Miracle of miracles, Eurobarometer has a survey in data protection not far from hitting the presses. Thus far, only the preliminary pan-European results have been released.

See if it is possible to restrain a hollow laugh at this:

"Interestingly, more than 50% of respondents said they trusted medical services and doctors, insurance companies, banks and financial institutions, employers, police, social security, tax authorities and local authorities when handling data. On the other hand, less than 50% of respondents said they trusted market and opinion research companies, non-profit organisations, mail order companies, credit reference agencies, credit card agencies and travel companies".

More detail when it is published.

I think I agree with that. The first lot, with the possible exception of banks, are much less likely to sell your personal data on to somebody else for a tidy sum. You can tell who is doing this by, every time you fill in a form for whatever, vary your details, eg use or omit a middle name or initial, use a slightly different way of writing your address etc and then see what junk mail incrporating that format arrives through your letter box
