Constitutional or not, this could and should be illegal or at least much more restricted. Next leak: Equifax, datasets of 143 million people or about half the US population.

September 7, 2017 — Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX) today announced a cybersecurity incident potentially impacting approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. [...] The information accessed primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers. In addition, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers, and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for approximately 182,000 U.S. consumers, were accessed.

RNC is a private non-profit organization, not a government one. NGOs are not as restricted by the constitution as the real govenment is about access and storage of private info. Google, Verizon, AOL etc made sure of that. Too much money in data mining.


And this showed why such legal differences is a bad thing.
