...but comrade, if you've committed no crimes, what have you to worry about?

Confidential personal data is being shared at unprecedented levels, the
information watchdog will warn today.

Data from sources as diverse as store loyalty cards, electronic travel
cards and driving licences is being used without people's knowledge as
never before.

People have "almost zero awareness" of how the information is being
passed around because the web of public and private organisations storing
it has become so complex.

Experts fear it will soon be impossible to stop the "information
sharing juggernaut".
