What if I don't want to be profiled?

But where is the definition of that purpose, other than "profiling" which 
is a very broad term.

And as to "customer" that has an even broader term.  Some entities define a 
customer as ANY person who see's their TV ad!

At the time.  But later, you know, things change.  New databases are 
created and software is upgraded and redeveloped and data migrated and merged.

Goodness, there are also corporate mergers, where "date was collected for 
customer profiling" and so when the two companies combine, so do the 
databases, after all, it's still customer profiling right?
