They said you don't have to type it in, but what it's for is to update their records regarding the privacy issue.Something doesn't smell right. Why would that form ask for the kind of personal information that they already have? It should be sufficient for you to enter your license number which can easily be reconciled with records.
Or am I being paranoid?
The following arguments can be made using the same logic:
- It's a choice to get a drivers license. A vehicle is a dangerous weapon. I can be harmed by your driving. Therefore I have a right to your driving record.
- Your relationships are (mostly) a choice. It can affect your emotions, and you could cause harm to others based on your unstable emotional state using an assortments of tools. If you're taking medication, seeing a therapist, etc. then I have a right to these records because it may help me avert danger.
- It's a choice (mostly) on what foods you eat. Your health can affect your actions, and your actions could be dangerous to me. Therefore I have a right to your medical records.
It's the same tired logic being used for lots of things ... "technically situation X could happen (even though it's a 0.00000001% chance), therefore the sky is falling and the person and/or item should be locked up forever".
