How private is our privacy?


1) When you sign up for a store card, most places have a disclaimer which states the store respects your privacy and your information will be kept confidential. 2) What about when you go to a hospital? Recently, in both situations, my privacy was not respected. What are your experiences? Do you have the same name as someone who you are friends with and instead of going by your identification, these places go by your name without regard to your street address or any other information? I received a hospital bill for someone who has a sister with the same name. Imagine that!

    I don't have a common last name. My first name is sort of common. Most recently my personal info was given out to someone who applied at the grocery store where I shop. They have the same name. The store didn't check the ID.

    It's really a scary thing. I think about the places I once worked. My info is still out there. Thank you so much for answering!
