Supermarket Spying On The UK

[Their database] contains details of every consumer in the UK at their home address across a range of demographic, socio-economic and lifestyle characteristics...whether they choose to shop at the retailer or not.

Oh yeah they do that shit hear in America also. They give you a "discount card" and use the info you gave them to get the card. If you don't have the card with you, use your phone number.I use someone else's phone # HA! But shit, I'm sure my info's out there anyway. 1984 has been here since around 1984 if you ask me.
