Sorry but you are asking for too much information
November 23, 2011
I know, it’s crazy. I have a Facebook account that I never use and I blog almost every day. But I am not going to give you a bunch of identifiers over the phone for your survey.
I get why they ask. I understand the need for those identifiers for survey results to be useful, for the statistics to really show a complete picture. But I don’t know the company / companies involved. I don’t know how good your computer security is or if you are in fact just collecting information so you can steal my identity.
Yes, I’m paranoid. I’m not understanding why that’s a problem.
It’s only gotten worse with HIPAA and FERPA. Now I can actually detail out in my head the list of things that can be used to identify someone.
And I know my information is already out there. I totally get that. But that doesn’t mean I need to be adding fuel to the fire.
Yeah – rant over… for now.
