Consumer Trafficking

Consumer Trafficking is the gathering and selling of our personal and private information by Internet companies, who track and trade our personal digital data every moment we are connected to the Internet. They sell our information behind our backs for huge profits, and all they provide in return for this invasion of privacy is a "free" service or the latest app. They've turned our privacy into a product and our identities into a commodity.  It's not right, and it's not necessary.  People should be able to socialize and transact business on the Internet without having to sacrifice their personal privacy.
